Brake booster reconditioning

Hey guys,
As you may have picked up from a comment in a post by someone the other day, I need my original V8 brake booster recoed.
Does anyone have any idea on price? and who does them?
Also is a V8 booster the same as a 6cyl?

I have the original to send off so I don't want to buy a new one (700 bucks on ebay)
Many thanks in advance for your advice.
Regards,
Alby

Tailgate winder lock barrel

Hi there people. Just trying to figure out if there is a simple solution or a solution at all for that matter if i have lost the key to my tailgate winder lock?
I note Rare spares and such the like do not list a new lock barrel so can they be re-keyed? ive taken it apart and cant see how the bloody barrel comes out of the housing. I.m sure it can if i had the key but what if you dont. I have a few winders all with no key so would be great to know what to do to fix them.
Cheers in advance.

Karl

The Kingswood sedan and wagon were released as part of the new HK series of Holdens in January 1968 (commercials: March 1968). This was an all-new body design, larger and heavier than the previous HR series. The HK series carried over the same local six-cylinder engines, but introduced the first V8 into the Holden range, the fully imported 307-cubic-inch (5.0 L) Chevrolet small-block engine.
