If there are any single items which are ostensibly missing in the resin realm , it's brake boosters , brake master cylinders , factory-stock air cleaners , and pulley / accessory assemblies .

Now , if these parts *are* available , I've yet to see them .

Thoughts ?

Air cleaners are out there, I know Ken Kitchen offers a couple. He does both regular and oil bath for the Chevy I-6 out of the AMT 1960 Chevy truck so it can be swapped into cars of the 50s and 60s. I have a set so I can put a 6 in the '59 El Camino, he does nice work.

Thanks for your reply and link , AaronW :) . Ken's got some cool builds ; but , I didn't see anything as far as what I'm inquiring about (perhaps I overlooked something ?)

I really think that the fledgling resin casters need to produce brake master cylinders , brake boosters and engine accessories . I don't like to raid kits for these parts (especially when the kit's already got the "wrong" parts in it . To wit : the Revell 1968 GSS / 440 GTS / Hurst Hemi : none of those had power brakes , especially power drum brakes !).

I'm building the Class Action 1980 Monte Carlo as a curbside for two reasons :
1.) An unconvincing engine ( a luxury coupe with manual steering and no a/c ?!?) , and ;
2.) I can use its booster / master cylinder in my 1976 Gremlin (why did AMT overlook this when these kits were new ?!?).

Anyone else have a source / some sources for the parts I'm seeking ?
