    The Howe piece worked very well in the Deztaz.

    Nice work, btw.

    Now that I got GM power steering pump that is driven by a engine fan belt I can power a HYDRATECH brake booster (also called Hydro Boost). The HYDRATECH brake boost is the most powerful brake booster you can get. The HYDRATECH bracket booster solved my brake problems , I have very powerful brakes now.






    This shows the hand brake on the steering wheel. The brake hand master cylinder lever is on the left side of the steering wheel, I am using a Magura 195 radial master cylinder that has a 20mm diameter piston. I welded an extension on to the clutch lever to get move leverage.










    This shows the hand brake reservoir line and reservoir


    The black part is the Hydratech brake booster. Using a Wilwood aluminum tandem master cylinder 1.125 dia pistons (part number 260-8556 details : https://www.summitracing.com/int/par...8556/overview/
    connected to the brake booster.

    Details for brake booster :

    The two little black boxes with knobs on top are pressure reduction valves so I can reduce pressure in the front or back brake line to balance the brakes. SSBC pressure reduction valve part number A0707-1 from Summit Racing https://www.summitracing.com/int/par...07-1/overview/

    This picture shows the red slave cylinder mounted on the yellow bracket stand. When the master cylinder on the steering wheel is pulled in it move the shaft in the red slave cylinder. The Slave Cylinder is made by Coleman http://www.colemanracing.com/Slave-C...ype-P4587.aspx



    I am using a Wilwood aluminum tandem master cylinder 1.125 dia pistons part number 260-8556 (from Summit Racing) bolted to the brake booster. This is the master cylinder that is connected to the brake calipers. https://www.summitracing.com/int/par...8556/overview/






    This picture shows the lever arm. The slave cylinder is the red part at the bottom of the picture. The master cylinder on the steering wheel actuates the slave cylinder and pushes its shaft moves outward, the level arm pivots and pushes the brake booster in which applies the brakes. The lever arm is set up to amply the movement from the slave cylinder this reduces the force produced at the brake booster end of the lever arm. The slave cylinder does not produce enough movement to operate the brake booster, so the lever arm set up is needed to amply the slave cylinder movement.more pictures. The red slave cylinder details :
    http://www.colemanracing.com/Slave-C...ype-P4587.aspx




    The lever arm is 2.3 inch from slave cylinder hole to pivot hole, 4.6 inch from pivot hole to brake booster hole.



    This is a link to the power steering system layout for using a T/C Pump and Hydro-Boost brake booster.

    Need to mount a pressure switch in the brake that is connected to the wiring harness so the ECU can pick up when the brakes are on




    This shows the switch mounted in the brake line.
    The Yamaha foot brake pedal has a switch on it that tells the ECU when the brake pedal is depressed this is a required function for the buggy to run. I am using AN-3 steel braided lines so I got a inline pressure sensor fitting that fits on the AN-3 steel braided lines.
