General Excel discussions. You may also post Eclat and Elite information here. If there is enough call I will set up new categories or even a new BB for them.

servo vacuum

Post by Pete Boole »

Has anybody measured or does anybody know how much vacuum there is at tick-over in the brake servo?

Thanks very much guys! I'll be running an electric vacuum pump for my brake servo and HVAC system so wanted to get some idea of the usual vacuum in a 912 manifold - you can set the vacuum pump to pretty much what you like (within limits!)

Electric power steering and servo vacuum pumps have been considered from time to time.

Depending on what broke at the time. :roll:
