Help! Montero trapped....

Help! Montero trapped.... - 09/18/15 12:40 AM

Hey everyone! It's been forever since I was last on, and almost twice that time since I was able to go on a trip with you all, but it has all been for a good cause (I hope). Plugging away and suffering the trials and tribulations of trying to grow my business, and I have been having to spend a lot of time in Cottonwood at my satellite office.....

Well here I sit, with a busted truck now and seemingly no hope...

As best I can tell, the brake booster in my 1995 SR failed today. I have a fairly loud hissing from the area of the pedal, the pedal feels very stiff, and even when I push hard, it still creeps slowly forward if it is in gear. I can't come up with anything else that it can be at this point. More importantly, I have to drive back to Phoenix for a meeting tomorrow night and I can't find a booster anywhere in the Verde Valley. Anyone have any ideas (or better yet, a booster they can spare)? There's free tours and other perks with my company in it if someone has a rescue for me.....

Man, I wish I could get over the hill today and check it out, but not in the cards for today I am afraid. I found a ride back to Phoenix, so I will make my meeting tonight, but from there I can't be sure. I am doubly interested in the 98/99 because I am still looking for one clear (as in non-fluted) glass headlight too.... here's to hoping I can do something about it Monday....

I can't find a Junkyard-X... is that a nickname I don't know, or am I just failing to find it online?

Thank you again! I went this afternoon and got the brake booster (though ran out of time to install it tonight) as well as the other 1999 headlight I have been looking for over the last couple years, a trailer brake controller with 7 pin connection, a spare EGR pipe which I also needed for a long time, and some other small extras that would be handy. I probably would have pulled more too, if it weren't for the fact that they were closing and I still needed to get back over the hill to my Cottonwood office before it got too late. Now I'm looking forward to putting it all together!
