vacuum pump repair kit

there used to be a vacuum pump repair kit for your car ,
the kit has a new diaphragm and check valves for the pump , located where the distributor would have been were the engine a gasoline fuel type .

those kits used to be about $20 retail
i bet they are still available from Worldpac or a place like it

my mom or great grandmother could easily have done the repair with one arm tied behind their back
standing on one foot
in about 20 minutes

I have tossed around the idea of an electric vacuum pump since mine barely does anything anyways so I have manual brakes all the time.

I was searching for vacuum pumps and ran across a few for hot rodders and what not at summit and jegs for $200 and up. This is not in my price range. I work at an auto parts place and have ran across this: vacuum pump off a 99-07 Ford F-350. They have these for the accessories on the truck but I wonder if it will work hard enough to run the brake booster and reservoir.

i would have posted a link, but my post count is too low.

A lot cheaper than summit, that's for sure.
