I also considered that Johan. The reason I couldn't do that with my Graz is that when the nuts on my transaxle were orriginally peened the process slightly distorted the threads of the threaded shafts. So when the peened nuts were removed the distorted threads on the shafts cut the threads of the removed nuts. in fact I had to run a Die over the shaft threads to make them prefect again. In my case the removed nuts all head threads that were too distorted to attempt to retorque them. If someone is going to reuse that nuts take a good look at the threads first to make sure they are ok,And a hint/suggestion, for you guys planning on doing the drop gear yourself. Instead of buying those damn expensive crushnuts you can try swapping position on them. If you’re lucky you will a fresh part on the nut to peen. It worked on my KVJ. It was almost a 1/4 turn differance.
Johan, nice work on the remote reservoir and slave pedal. How do you plan to control the electric vacuum pump?I haven't decided to switch to power brakes yet, but if I do I've prepared the linkage and all fittings. About 2.5 years ago I bought a LS3 from a 2012 Camaro SS and got half the car. Among other things a complete brake system so I already had the MC and booster.
I had to get rid of the reservoir and do a remote mount due to my cooling duct so I made a new aluminium mount that fits where the old reservoir was and used banjo fittings to get it as low as possible. Also made new brake tube fittings, however I don't know if I'll use them or the -3AN/M12x1.5 fittings.
The stock Camaro brake pedal has a ratio of 3.8:1 and the Tilton has about 5:1 so I used the slave lever to get to approximatly 3.8:1. Also lasercut a couple of extra levers if I don't get it right the first time. I made all bushings with POM (acetal) plastic round bar and will use sholder bolts on all 4 places. I'll make the last lever from the pedal to the slave lever after I have mounted it.
When it comes to vaccuum I choose the Hella UP30 which is designed to provide the nessessary vaccuum independant of engine (diesel,gasoline turbo or electric). I have tested the system and it works perfect.
For the pump, I got a pressure switch from the junkyard from a Volvo V70 T5.Johan, nice work on the remote reservoir and slave pedal. How do you plan to control the electric vacuum pump?
Can you also share the dimensions of the slave pedal which works out to the 3.8 ratio?
