    Vacuum pump

    Does anyone know whether a universal vacuum pump would be able to run the original wipers on a 51 Ford f1?
    And what sort pressure it would need to run at to operate them ?
    Thanks

    Why can't you run the vacuum off the manifold like it should be?

    Running a remote servo off the wiper vacuum take off, there is a another port that could be used but was considering the 12v pump option.

    Yes, doesn’t seem to affect the running when braking and doesn’t pull timing out. Checked timing last week and was still correct.

    Should they affect each other ?

    I would be inclined to change to electric wipers. At least they work!
