Re: Vacuum Pumps

ELECTRIC VACUUM PUMP


ELECTRIC VACUUM PUMP
ENGINES WITH BIG CAMS OR SUPER CHARGERS OFTEN DO NOT GENERATE ENOUGH VACUUM TO OPERATE POWER BRAKES. FOR PROPER OPERATION OF A POWER BOOSTER YOU WILL NEED AT LEAST 16" OF VACUUM.
THE ELECTRIC VACUUM PUMP WE OFFER WILL SOLVE THIS PROBLEM. THIS PUMP WILL MAINTAIN 21" OF VACUUM...PLENTY FOR POWER BRAKES. IT HAS AN INTERNAL SENSOR SO THAT IT WILL ONLY OPERATE ON DEMAND. CAN BE MOUNTED ANYWHERE IN THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT.
SIZE: 7" X 6" X 4"
POWER DRAW:3 AMPS
SUPPLIED WITH ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR AND MOUNTING HARDWARE

AC2724k...$389.95


I'm after something more like this that is actually designed and made for the apllication i am after just can't seem to find anything in aus.

This is my reply below.
I have a electric Vacume pump, that I run inline with my booster. The prodiucts is made for Stainless steel brakes in the US. It was a major upgrade from the vacume tank it replaced.

The problem with a vaucum tank is it is only a storage device, if you continually brake with out building any engine vacum you end up with a hard pedal. The electric vacume pump constantly replenishes the booster as required.

So how did you get hold of the vacuum pump Brett. Did you order it from these fellas from America and what kind of cost am i looking at? I was just hoping that there would be a local mob that make them.

I've looked into that. They are only good for like 3500rpm max so me runnig the car to 7000 will kill it quick smart. But thanks for the idea.

Because the tank only holds vacuum so you can brake more with whats built up in the tank. It won't make me pull up any quicker. I can't even lock up the tyres if i try. These seem the way to go for say $500-$600 and it keeps like 21"s of vacuum there so the brakes will be good as.
