Brake Vacuum Pump and Manifold complete

The brake vacuum pump and associated fittings are installed.

The pump is quite quiet. At higher vacuum the vibration is less.

1. T goes to brake booster and to the vacuum tank. (Aluminium drink bottle from Katmandu)
2. T and vacuum cutoff swithch
3. T and vacuum gauge
4. One way valve
5. Vacuum pump.

I bought the brass fittings (5/16") from ENZED
