Azure Dynamics Vacuum Pump

If you find this information useful, please share this page or even donate.

Details from an eBay listing:

Surplus, Ford / Continental Double Diaphragm Electric Vacuum Pump 12VDC. Ford# A426C.
This pump was originally intended for use in Azure Dynamics Transit Connect electric vehicles.
It is much quieter than the older Delco pumps. Great for use in electric vehicles, diesel trucks, and racing vehicles. These do not have anti-vibration grommets or mounting brackets.

  • Full load: approximately 182 watts
  • At Vacuum: approximately 104 watts 
  • Appears to have about a 3/8" hose barb connection
  • Weighs 5 lbs. 8oz.
  • Maxes out at over 25 in of hg

Unfortunately this too is way too heavy. The Hella / Vovlo vacuum pumps I have used before are much lighter and use less power.
