I hate to be a ... male organ ... but...

How about, just take your existing booster apart (or maybe even a new, or one with an otherwise known good diaphragm in it) and send the 2 housing halves off to yerbasic local shiny-thing guy? Only take acoupla minutes each way, tear-down and build-back. At least if you're slow like me, and stop for acoupla cold ones in the middle each way, and savor them lovingly. OTOH if you have enough self-control to delay that instant gratification for like 2 minutes, your drive-in to drive-out time could probably be measured in seconds instead of whole minutes.

UP DATE.. found a place who rebuilds them..(In CA) they are sending me the master cylinder. and the booster.. taken apart .. so I can get them chrome plated and polished.. I then send it back to them.. for Reassembly.. then they ship it to me $170 for the unit after its together tested boxed up... so in the end I get a new Factory GM part. that's made for my car. the booster chromed.. and the master polished.. then I just reinstall ..sweet!
thanks for the Idea..parts ARE on the way!
this way my parts can go on a shelf when I remove them from the car.. like all the other Factory parts...its just a sawp.
THE place doing it sells to Rock Auto and others..and with the help from rock autos site..and 2 phone calls I have a ..factory GM rebuilt parts / AC Delco. booster..(chrome plated with polished master cylinder) keeping it simple..but nice looking..

my engs cam is to larg for eng vacuum .. but we did pick up a vac pump.. just for this...
