The table I have shows this is for a Series 1 hydrovac. Don't know if it also worked on later units.

Kit applies to GM 2154113 1St Series Double Ended Hydrovac. Does not fit the 3Rd Series.
It tells correctly in French.

Thank you for the clarification.

Does anyone know where a 3rd series rebuild kit could be purchased?

Thanks

Have you checked with "Frank's CCKW"? His number is 1-705-437-3757. I've ordered a lot of parts from him over the years.

Not the most economical solution, but if you can't locate a kit, complete Type 3 units - rebuilt by Midland - are still available through NAPA stores.

I had to put one on my truck as the P.O. had installed the wrong unit (too small).

Best Regards...
