Re: DIY electric vacuum pump

Not sure, but it's enough to pull the oil cap in by itself at idle when turned up all the way. Do not run it at full power for long, it will burn out the pump. I have mine adjusted to about 3/4 power, it still pulls pleanty of vac.

Yeah, the tires are way too slim even with a full spool. I just can't figure out how to get anything larger in the wheel wells. I'm running a 5 lug Maverick 8". I might be able to step it up to 7" without moving the springs and tubbing it. This is in my 60 ranchero, not my 64.
