Question about 1965 Ford Mustang
1965 Restomod Fastback - I lost vaccum due to the new add of a oversize CAM,I then added an additional electric vacuum pump which helped some still not that good. I hate the electric vacuum pump, way too much noise eveytime it kicks in. The brakes were upgraded to Disc in the front but the back brakes are original.
Is it difficult and costly to replace the rear brakes from Shoe to Disc and then remove the vacuum on the motor. Any leads on good mechanics close to Tacoma Wa?
Ran into this problem the same way you did, but back in '75 with a Ford 289.
First of all,and you've probably done it already, is to make CERTAIN all vacuum hoses and connections, tees etc. are leak free. Then move on to diaphram actuated valves (egr valve, heater core valve, vacuum modulator valve, distributor vacuum advance.... and then there's the diaphram actuated dampers for a/c and heat in the dash) ALSO, a good idea is to add a larger than stock vacuum canister, such as a large coffee can - metal of course!
