Default Hydrovac Brake Booster

The Hydrovac Brake Booster on my 1970 W500 Dodge went out today.
I found the A1 Cardone part number 51-8031 on the Cardone site but I can't find anyone that has one in stock. Does anyone have any idea where I can find one of these or perhaps a reputable rebuild shop I could send it to?

I did a search on the Stove Bolt truck forum and found a place in VA called DS Parts company. Talked to Mike on the phone. They didn't have any cores with my part # Bendix 2500517 to rebuild and sell me, so I sent mine off to them yesterday.

That is for sure. I think of a '70's as being a late model.

Yeah, it's hard to believe that cars that were new when I graduated High School are antiques now. And that was just 1977, seems like it was last year....
