The Leed unit was the one I was looking actually, as it is apparently very quiet in operation. Would you recommend using this purely for the brake booster, and does that mean the booster uses just the pump for vacuum without needing engine vacuum any more?

It’s pretty quiet. You definitely can’t hear when the engine is running. Compared to the piston styles it’s definitely what they claim, 60% quieter. Yes no need to use the engine vacuum. It has a relay that shuts on and off as it requires vacuum. The manifold vacuum then is only used for the AC switch assembly, along with the three vacuum bladder actuators. On all of my cars at least one out of the three has been bad, meaning there is a constant vacuum leak.

K&D in America has these now. George figured out the stroke and pressure, then had a bunch manufactured with the label Jensen interceptor on them. Highly recommended.

Hi Mark,

I like the gas struts and also the heat shielding on the hood, nice! Do you still need to use the hood prop rod or are they strong enough on their own?

Keep those two beauties between the ditches, John

Hello John,

Sorry for the delayed response. The gas struts work great however you do need the Pop Ups Or original lift springs.

Mark. With respect to your sway bar Hyme joints. What you do about the tapered holes in the factory receivers? RacerJoe
