i dont know, the car sat for two weeks, and the whole time it held 20" vacuum in the diaphram so i really do not think its a bad check valve?

Re: new car

made a trip to a old bowling alley. COVID killed it basically. i got part of a lane. going to be a massively strong work bench. i VERY MUCH underestimated the weight. its easily 200 lbs https://moveyourshit.com/images/df2cc0a2be5f81c98e16db7ba70b2b90.jpg https://moveyourshit.com/images/8ad888f157e65...

Re: new car

I did test drive a few Subaru. Wasn't impressed that to get what I wanted I had to get a sunroof. I went out of my way to find a new car without a sunroof.

Subaru have better feeling brakes. This thing is over boosted

Re: brakes

ok it works with the engine running either at idle or driving, gives up after two stops. i tried pumping the brakes and it did not have affect. it seems to work ok if i do not let the brake pedal reset all the way, meaning if i pump the brake from 1/2 to full stroke i have power... until it resets.
