Holden brake booster

just hada look under the dash of my hj and see there is no adjuster nut and rod connecting booster to the pedal.
every pic ive seen of 1 all have them.
Does anyone no the differnce between the ones with adjusters and the ones without!

maybe for front drums!

HJs didn't have drums on front. Pretty sure it has to do with what master cylinder and booster it has. PBR or Girling (!)

Is the adjuster on the pedal stop!

nope. at my wits end, ive had front brakes apart, multiple m\cs )including 4 brand new duds from repco) new wheel cyls in rear. brake pads and shoes all round. also had it at the garage getting looked at. and still no brakes

This booster didn't have an adjustable pedal pushrod.Does the one on your booster have a slight bend at the pedal end of the pushrod!

A spongey pedal will not be pushrod adjustment.Highly likely that some of the caliper slides are seized.Very common with this age Holden brake system.

all this over the last 3 months on and off, and ive just found a website which says all hq\j 6 and 8 boosters are interchangable. but not hx\z my rod from the back of the booster has a turn down which means its from a hx.thank f&*% for this http://www.mysandman.com.au/forums/showthread.php/574-Brake-Boosters-explained
