work while your car is stalled in the mile high city! Master Power

Thanks Meester Dave!

The pump they have is spendy, so I found a different one that should
work for 1/2 that if there isn't at least 18" of vacuum available
from the Amphi. They had some good info in their site that was very
helpful.

Now I need to get out the calculator to figure out correct geometry
for the linkages, build it and swim!

I have done some investigating on a power brake and dual master
conversion (after Bilgy planted the seed) and if it works, I'll post
the instructions on how to make the switch relatively cheaply
(somewhere in the realm of ~$200, I think) and without the problem of
the front brakes "snatching" as he mentioned. A little something else
for the club members site to add a level of safety to our Amphis.

John "DOH!" Bevins
