ELECTRIC BRAKE VACUUM BOOSTER
« on: December 06, 2018, 06:43:49 pm »
 I'm sure this has been discussed before but I will put it out there. Any suggestions / recommendations for a brake vacuum booster system? I have seen a few out there that seem to be well engineered. But a little pricey.(Master Power) Don't mind paying for a good product but I'm sure someone has a home designed set up that performs well. Thanks in advance. Best regards from rainy San Diego   :)

I had this same question when I had my motor built with a hotter cam, no brakes. I ended up buying a 12 volt vacuum pump and was going to mount it in a hidden spot, trunk, front wheel well, etc. I sold the car and still have the vacuum kit. If you might be interested, I will give you the deal of the day on it. I'll look at it tomorrow and find out the brand, etc. Can take some pics as well.

I installed a vacuum pump and reservoir tank in a 68 stang with good results. The biggest issue I had was the noise and vibration of the pump, and there aren't a lot of open areas for mounting. I'm looking into a hydraulic unit that works off of the power steering pump for another project.

Install a Hydra-Boost brake system instead.

Current lifelong project:

Another 'project' in the works!! For now, its top secret...

Crossboss is right on. The hydraboost system run off the power steering pump works great when you go to 4 wheel disc brakes. The altitude where I live was a problem for me and I could not pull enough vacuum to operate the 4wdb correctly. This was not on a B2, just a 71 Mustang.    Ed

I had a Hydratech on a 65 Chevelle and its a Killer option to resolve a low vacuum problem not cheap but worth it to have brakes.
