1965 Hissing Noise Under The Dash

Bill -

I've got a 65 Lincoln that produces a hissing sound under the driver's side of the dash when I start the car.
.
I assume it is connected to the brakes, as when I apply them, the sound stops, but the brakes are activated far too strong. Anything more than a feathers touch on the brake pedal nearly locks up the tires. Any suggestions?

Greetings Ryan,

I hate it when that happens.

From your description it sounds like you have a classic Brake Booster failure. Something inside is ruptured or has fallen out of position. It must be removed and sent out for rebuilding or swapped for a rebuilt exchange unit. If we can be of further assistance to you please don't hesitate to call us.

Sincerely,


Bill
