9.12. Vacuum amplifier


Work check
1. Squeeze out a pedal and start the engine. If the pedal fell a little, so the vacuum amplifier is serviceable.
2. Squeeze out a brake pedal several times at the switched-on engine and check that the brake pedal course reserve always was same.
Tightness check
3. Start the engine and muffle it in a couple of minutes. Slowly squeeze out a brake pedal several times. The course of a pedal of a brake has to decrease every time.
4. Squeeze out a brake pedal at the working engine, then kill the engine, without releasing a brake pedal. If the pedal does not fall within 30 seconds, so the vacuum amplifier is tight.


1. Remove the main brake cylinder. Disconnect a vacuum hose from the amplifier.
2. Disconnect a pusher of the amplifier from a brake pedal.
3. Turn off four fixing nuts and remove the amplifier.


1. Installation is carried out upside-down removals.
2. Connect the vacuum pump to the amplifier and create depression in 500 mm of a mercury column.
3. Measure distance from the surface of the vacuum amplifier to a pusher - it is distance "And".
4. Measure distance from a fixing flange until the end of the main cylinder - it is distance of "B".
5. Measure distance from the end of the main cylinder before deepening in the piston - it is distance "In".
6. Subtract value "B" from value "B", subtract the received value from value "A". The received result is value of a gap of a pusher of a servoamplifier.
7. Adjust length of a pusher (1) if it is necessary, having weakened a lock-nut (2) and having tightened up the pusher regulator.
