Dont take my word for it but im really pretty sure EF would fit on your EB, i think they're interchangeable same thing for the booster.

EB boosters are metal, and EF/EL are plastic.

But are they interchangeable? If they are which one is better?

I doubt you could get an EF/EL/AUI booster to fit, they are 2 bolts to hold on and the EA/EB/ED is 3. Having said that, It MAY be possible but I can't see how. The master cylinders are different too.

You could try these people and see if they have a cheaper Master Cylinder?

Sorry, I don't know much about brake places in QLD. I am sure there are better places like Repco or Midas?

Oh crap, I dont think ive updated my situation. I gave my car for a mechanic to do he charged me basically for the price of a new PBR master cylinder and did the replacement and fluid change. Saves me from having todo it myself and boy i booked for next appointment with him when i heard his price. :mrgreen: Same day service.

actually they can bolt up to each other fine, only problem is the brake line as located in different spots on the cylinder
EF/EL line areon the side
EB/ED one line on the side other on the rear

Id highly recommend investing in a decent compressor, and a "brake sucker"....
I have the "air boy" one http://www.autotools.com.au/images/prod ... %20Boy.jpg
and IMHO its the better one to get....
I also use it to keep my pwr str fluid "fresh"...among other things.

You use it to quickly suck out the fluid from resevoir.
Clean out gunge CAREFULLY with clean rag.
Fill resevoir right up with new fresh brake fluid (a different colour helps)
Connect "brake sucker" to bleed nipple on caliper, loosen off nipple,
Turn on "brake sucker", and just let it do its thing...
Watch the resevoir level and keep topping up... DONT let it run empty.
Once the brake fluid changes colour / looks fresh, tighten nipple, turn off "brake sucker".
Move to next caliper, and repeat....

1 person, stuff all effort, and no b*$tard peddal pumping.

Start left rear first, then right rear, then left front, finish right front.
And remember keep resevoir level full!
Overfull is ok, can suck out a bit when finished anyway...

:)
