My 1995 Chevy Blazer brake booster interferes with the factory air cleaner. Tonight I installed my rebuilt progressive 2 barrel Weber 32/36 carb. It uses a special adaptor plate. Now the brake booster fits without interference.
Since I have an inline six cylinder, my air cleaner is not in the center of the truck. When I did a test fit of the brake booster, I found that it bumps into the air cleaner. Once I install the brake booster, I will have to use a smaller air cleaner. I'm not too happy about that. Once I swap to a weber carb, there should be no interference.
The work done last night felt very good since I've really made no significant progress in the last 5 weeks. I borrowed a nice tool from the local auto parts store so I could disconnect the outer tie rod stud without damage. The disc brake kit by CPP seems to fit well and all the necessary parts are included. My vintage 15" slotted wheels seem to work with these disc brakes. I was worried they would rub.
