Do not ship your vacuum booster loose in a box.
Use packaging paper or equivalent materials to wrap and protect the booster from damage.
Make sure the brake booster is securely surrounded by the packaging material to prevent shifting or movement.
Protection for specific components
Pay special attention to protecting the tail stock bakelite material and the brake pedal rod.
Ensure they are secured and cannot be bent or broken during shipping.
Insert cardboard panels vertically in the corners of the box, positioned higher than the booster.
This prevents the rods from poking through the box during transit.
Shipping form and box sealing
Enclose the shipping form, which you can download here.
Make sure to securely tape the box to seal its contents.
Reinforce the bottom of the box with additional cardboard.
This prevents the brake servo from attempting to break through the bottom of the box.
Note: If the tailstock is received broken or chipped, it will need to be replaced, which may require a replacement core.
If you have an original OEM check valve and you want to keep it, remove it before sending the booster in. We will be installing a new aftermarket check valve. The unit will be tested using the new valve.
In cases where these tailstocks are no longer manufactured, a replacement core may be necessary. If PBBE supplies a used or remanufactured part, there will be a minimum additional cost of $70.

Master Cylinder, if you are not able to remove it, keep it installed, be sure to remove all brake fluid
