Default Looking for a brake part

I saw on the powerblock a while ago a master brake cylinder that instead of having a huge vacume canister, had a small electric pump. I didn't catch the name of who made it and now I can't find it. Anybody ever seen this part anywhere?

No, you're thinking of ABS/Traction. All of our cars use a pump for that. Gordy is asking about the Booster.

No, I'm not. Least I don't think soo..

Franky doens't have a booster. It has a little accumulator and electric motor that Randy has said is the Teeves equivalent to a vacuum booster.

Oh, gotcha. Right. But keep in mind that'* just one version of Teves. That'* what threw me. I have Teves on the 93, also.

That car uses a different MC totally. And that system would severely under-brake Gordy'* 95.

Many Cadillacs, specifically the 1986 Sevilled, used an electric vacuum pump as a booster for the power brake system.
take a look at the MP barkes web site: http://www.mpbrakes.com/vacuumpump.htm
Summit Racing also sells them: http://store.summitracing.com/egnsea...8&autoview=sku
This is a pic of the Caddy pump.
