What do you think!
Below is a picture of the pump mounted under the floor. ( picture is upside-down )
Thanks! Joe
Honestly, I see no advantage to running a reservoir. Like you said, it'll maybe get you an extra application or two before cycling- but it's not going to make any difference in the brake system performance as I'm sure you know. I'd save my money.

It still doesn't stop like the family sedan, but when you consider the mix of parts that we use in these cars,
I'm happy and I'll keep tweeking!
Thanks guys!

Good job! I cannot help but think you made a wise choice over using a reservoir.

S10xGN I made a loop to the tank with a "tee" tap for the booster.

My question is on placement of the can. I figure it should as close to the booster as possible but I'm going to have to run about 5'of
vacuum hose from the manifold to the can then 2' back to the booster. Will this have an adverse effect on what what I'm trying to accomplish? I don't want to run a noisey Vac pump if possible!
You would like the reservoir as close to the booster as possible, but 2' from the booster is not too far away. Just don't expect miracles.

vacuum 9 inches

Get yourself a SSBC electric vacuum pump and have a steady 18--21 inches of vacuum. You only hear the pump when you hit the brake before you start the car. Turn up the sterio and block it out....LMAO.

My 35 coupe with 7" dual diaphram booster 1 1/8 bore master , 4 piston wilwood brakes all around, stopped like crap and was a heart stopper when driving until i got it sorted with the vacuum pump. I highly recommend it.

I had 13" max at idle and 2000 rpm, it just doesn't work when your running a healthy camshaft with lift and duration. Pump solved the problem.

I already bought another for my new 35 steel chev roadster build.
