    Lightbulb Vacuum Holding Cannister

    i finally got my stupid pictures to upload by some miracle.

    the firewall feed through i made,this bolts to the firewall


    here is the bottle and the aluminum brackets i made to hold it in place
    sorry about the condition of the carpet,it's going to be replaced anyway,and sorry about the blurry image,still trying to get used to the focal length of this camera

    oh, i anticipate some vaccume problems with the dual carbs and the other cam going in,this helps store vaccume for the brake booster,so your booster always has enough vaccume even if you have a lower then normal manifold vaccume. there was no where to mount it under the hood,so it's mounted behind my seat,no one can sit behind me anyway with the seat all the way back.

    it should work good,people have been doing it for years,if you use it for your power brakes,you t it into the line then the check valve goes into the line before the t,in other words the vaccume input on the booster and the bottle are attached together. if you don't want to fabricate one,you can buy one ready made from summit racing,or jegs.

    Re: some pictures of the vaccume bottle storage thingy

    some more pictures of the vaccume bottle being installed
    feed through from the inside,carpet is pulled back,one day i'll get my pedals installed.

    bottle behind the drivers seat

    AN T fitting installed in engine compartment

    firebraid line from feedthrough to t fitting from underneath

    i realize the check valve is on the wrong side of the bottle,i just wanted to keep rainwater out,since it started raining again. i will fix it later

    Re: some pictures of the vaccume bottle storage thingy

    Doesn't the brake booster have to have a vacuum accumulator built in to it?

    it stores some,but not very much,i'm also going to use some vaccume actuators inside of the car,and this will also store vaccume for them when the car is off. some future projects.

    Re: some pictures of the vaccume bottle storage thingy

    The 2g's actually have a vacuum bottle located under the cowl, it's plumbed into the HVAC controls, I never knew it was there until I removed the cowl grille for painting. I'm sure I have a spare, you want it?
