    Definitely a downer when you lose the drive belts but with the cam that it will eventually get back in it there isn't enough vacuum to drive a vac based system and after looking at the alternatives and my neighbor about to scrap a chevy pickup with the required parts it kind of fell into place.

    Fair enough, better than no assist at all. The alternative I assume would be a vacuum pump but I believe they can be a bit noisy.
