Hi There

I suspect my Cruiser to not have sufficient vacuum to the brake booster.
Symptom is that when I pump the brake pedal while engine is not running then it becomes stiffer as it should, but then holding the pedal while starting the engine and revving it a bit there is no movement in the brake pedal at all.
I removed the vacuum hose from the vacuum pump and do feel a bit of suction but nothing major. How hard is it suppose to suck?  :-\

Eric, it does not feel that hard if you block the pipe with you finger, but I put a vacuum gauge on mine last week and it read 27'5" vacuum. you need to get it tested.

Thanks Grahame, like you suggest - I'd rather have it tested  :)
