Thanks Have been looking at them, but I dont think they will be big enough capacity and the last thing I want is to run out of vacuum going down a hill as there is virtually no brakes without vacuum assist

Sorry for the late reply about my vacuum system.
Lorry has his vacuum pump bolted on the back of his 24v alternator. I was curious about where to get one if needed as Lorry has a few kilometers on him and first start after sitting a while takes a while for the warning light to go out. My first step to suring this problem is to start replacing the vacuum hoses as they are getting hard so amy not be sealing as they should.
As for the size of the pump on the back of alternators don't let size fool you. Lorry has 2 rather large vacuum tanks for the dual circuit brake boosters and I haven't run out of vacuum as yet once he has built up enough to shut down the low vacuum light. One that style with a decent tank should do the job for you.

Sorry for hi-jacking your thread.

Cobba,
Have 3 x 24 V alternators I scrounged with vac pumps. Can dig them out and see just what they are.
I am a bit far away but never know when I or others will end up your way..
no use to me.
Cheers Steve

SMS diesel Lidcombe, Sydney had some used and new. Lots of Jap 4-5 tonners use them.

Those pumps will supply quite a volume.

Hi guys and thanks for the replies but I don't need one at the moment as I think I have a couple of vacuum leaks and no issue with the pump, butI was curious about where to buy one if needed.
I have in the past bought new parts from Bretts Truck Parts near Gosford NSW so they may have them if needed.
