electric vacuum pumps

has anyone put a electic vac pump on car to overcome poor braking due to low manifold vacuum,if so how did it go and where did you get it from.i have used a diesal alternator before with the pump on back, but found they throw the belt when you give them e big rev,as they are not for this application

Re: electric vacuum pumps

You could use an extra vacuum tank to hold vacuum, similar to some of the GT's most brake places sell them.

Morosso make a vacuum pump but it is rather expensive.
You still could use the diesel pump, but fit a larger pulley to the front of it to slow it down

i got a tank off old car and it worked okay it would be better with full vac though,your right about pump though. i had the whole set up until a year ago and moved workshops,i threw it out along with all my car stuff instead of moving it, everyone said dont chuck it but i was never coming back to this car scene. you would be horrified at what i gave and through away.so by the time i get a alternator,oil feed & return lines,find the right pulley.i probably would be better with elec pump. i suppose i will drive it and see how it feels
