    I've been having problems with my power brakes recently, so I spent all yesterday bleeding the vacuum from the intake manifold. I hope that the 6 x 12oz cans of Lucas Vacuum Replacement is sufficient to get me back on the road again.

      It's been recommended to check the reviews. They all say it sucks.

      Glad mine is manual.

        I heard it sucks too.

        I guess it's better than using compressed air....because that blows.

            Yes ...I also have some Raychem Heatshrink to help retain the smoke inside the looms. Much better than the OEM non-stick tape wrap.

                It is available at Harbor Freight sometimes....cheaper but not as reliable.

                            True story. My aunt back in 1967 went to a gas station and wanted the mechanic there to change the air in her tires since it was original in her 1963 Cadillac!

                                    Air will stay on the shelf for many many years and never goes bad.

                                    Thought it was thats why we have to go to electric cars. Speaking of them do they use deionized air or does Ionized air help the charging of the battery?
                                    and is there right and left side air so one side does not discharge the battery?
