Vacuum pumps.

Hi all I am looking at fitting a pump to my servos . Mine just don't feel like they are working properly . Have to press pedal quite hard . My question is has any body fitted an electric servo pump and any for or against ..

Thanks all .. John.

Re: Vacuum pumps.

I've now installed about 4 different electric auxiliary vac pumps (various brands)...'am now trying to get my 5 FIFTH ONE to work...and NONE to date have worked as they should OR worked in one fashion or another for any longer than an hour-or-so running time.

If you find one that actually WORKS AS ADVERTISED and works for longer than an hour or two of running time - PLEASE let me know!

Re: Vacuum pumps.

I normaly use the Hella UP28 for this aplication which works great.
The Hella UP 28 pulls 25inHg ( I measured that).
Bit of searching on eBay normaly found for around $100.-
Volvo's have them.

Hooked these up to the brakelight switch so when hitting the brake the pump starts sucking.


I Have converted two cars allready who drive for years now.

Thanks, Rick. 'Appreciate it.

I'll wait 'til I see if the replacement relay does the trick. If it doesn't, I'll give him a call and see if he can shed some light on things.

According to the 'meter, the stinkin' relay has to be the fly in the ointment.

'Replacement relay still not here...so, I don't know what I'll end up doing/getting.

Do you know what the 'start up/shut off range' is on the UP 28? I'm looking for something that provides 15 inches-or-so 'on' / 25 inches-or-so 'off'...
