vacuum reserve canister

do those vacuum reserve canister just improve the power brakes with a lopey cam or will it improve the overall vacuum of the motor? also where would I put the vacuum gauge tube (for the gauge thats hooked up in the truck?)

just for reserve vacuum for things that need vacuum such as the a/c heater control panel and such as well. at least stock vacuum balls and canisters anyways.

I thought you were an expert?

The gauge goes to manifold vacuum.

Vacuum reserve canisters are mainly for vacuum assisted power brakes.

They help, even with a lopey cam, for a couple of power brake applications after an above idle run. The extra vacuum does help...Your motor does make a fair amount of vacuum when it is decelerating, this is what pulls the vacuum down in the canister..The canister has a check valve, so even when the motor is running at a low vacuum, there is still enough vacuum in the canister to allow the brake booster to work...a few times..then you have to run the motor up some more.
later, mikey

Putting a larger engine into a small engine bay required me to use a smaller brake booster. By using a reserve canister, will this bring my braking power back to where it should be? Thanks!

No. It may help a little, but only a slight amount. In your case you need a larger brake booster.

Or just go to manual brakes, you don't need that grandma vacuum assist anyway.
