This has probably been answered before but could not find it. I recently picked up a spare Midland booster that has the large Midland logo stamped into the case. Was this version used on any of the Shelby's? All I remember seeing is the plain case. Thanks, Mike

  That is a non-factory case according to "Booster Dewey"

Also stay away from the ones with the Ford trademark in a oval stamped in the top side.

The logo is easily filled.  Hit it with a file to remove any raised areas around the logo and a quick smear of filler and you're good to go.

The one thing I was wondering about is clamp clocking.  Is there a known correct position on the clamping screw?  I see a lot of them at 10 o'clock, mine is at 6 but my car is highly "messed with".

I believe 10 o'clock is typical.

Hello,

Is this a correct Booster:
