Re: How I got Hydroboost for under $80 (including lines)

when i did my hydro-boost, all i had to do was lengthen the rod using part of the original vacumm booster brake rod, and welded it on, and then it worked the exact same as your setup

Re: How I got Hydroboost for under $80 (including lines)

I know this thread actually started a long time ago but this is great information. I love finding Pick 'N Pull solutions that are top quality. I pulled my entire serpentine system out of an old pickup and saved hundreds of $$ vs new GM stuff. I just sent off my vacuum power booster back to mfg. for repair/replacement, it only had around 500 miles on it. My next built will have hydroboost!

Re: How I got Hydroboost for under $80 (including lines)

I went the AN line route. The adapters at the steering box will raise the lines requiring trimming of the inner fender to clear.

Also, in my case, because I am running a late model serpentine belt system and my motor is moved forward a couple inches (4WD with 700R4) the distance from the box to the pump is very short (not enough room for an AN tee). The simplest way to handle that return line was to weld an AN bung to the side of the pump body.
