Hello all, I'm just trying to find the right brake booster for my 92 SC. Here are some pics of my old Teves brake booster and my booster I purchased from O riley's. The bolts dont seem to line up.

Also does the vacuum line hook up to the line next to the blue bracket in the back.

89 Tbird LX bolts right in. I can't really tell from your photo which port you're speaking of but yes that's where I connected mine

Ok cool thank you, I can't wait to take this POS hydroboost system out. It takes away alot of power steering and makes the pump much louder.

The Teves Mk II isn't a hydroboost, and isn't connected to the power steering lines at all.

If it's hydroboost, it's not a Teves ABS, and there's no telling what booster will fit in its place.

I missed it initially, but the vac booster he shows in pic is 3 bolt.
Its not going to bolt up to firewall?

If what you have has now is a hydroboost system.Not
sure what kind of mess your going to get into trying to uninstall
it & removing it from power steering system. Not sure how they
would've tied into it?

The holes are there I've done it many times . Yes the factory system uses a different bolt pattern but if you look the holes for both are there.

Thank you guys for your help, here is a pic of the hydroboost. It has only 2 lines for the brake lines, both fronts were connected. I have a mechanic that's willing to help but I just want to make sure I tell him the right spot for the vacuum line it's right here right?

Yah, that hydroboost's not anything most folks here will know anything about.

But yes, that 3 post booster fits in 3 of the holes the Teves fit into. (Or maybe there's a plug for one of the bolts, not sure, don't remember, but the TBird booster from the LX bolts right in.)

I just did a oil change and I noticed that the return line to the power steering pump was kinked from a coolant hose. I disconnected it and rerouted it and I noticed it helped out alot. I might just keep it the way it is.
