Can I use the mechanical brake system parts under the hood of my 1991 Buick Park Avenue to replace those parts in my 1989 Olds Touring Sedan ?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Park Avenue yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am having a classic car repair mechanic do it ,if it is possible.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I am interested specifically in the power brake booster.

O.K.

Hi,

Ok, checking 2 different interchange books, the brake booster as well as the master cylinder are NOT interchangeable. Design and engineering changed on the 1991 models of Park Ave, Olds 88/98.

You can only interchange 1989-1990 models
