View Full Version : 96 Diesel Vacuum pump

01-19-2011, 09:21 AM
Anyone know a scource for rebuild parts for one of the diesel vacuum pumps? Mines a 96 power brakes didnt work last night not so easy to stop! Pulled the line no vacuum at all, drove home cause I wasnt to far. I started the truck to move it later that night and it was working just fine, but dont really trust it now?

I looked on ebay and they are like 400 bucks :eek: but they just have 3 little veins in them so cant ya just rebuild em for alot less then that? But I couldnt find anything?

Found a cheap electric pump but doesnt look like it has a powerbrake big line not sure if it could power em?

anyone else have issues with their vacuum pump?
