Because we are gear heads, we take every chance to look under the hoods during car shows and swap meets. One of our guys just got back from a big show and he was surprised by how a mistake he saw so many times.
To use his words, “How could something like this be wrong on so many vehicles?”
Since we are in the brake business, we notice more things when it comes to a vehicle’s braking system than most classic car enthusiasts. Kind of like the house painter that can’t walk into a room without checking the paint line between the wall and the ceiling.
So what was it that our resident gear head noticed? About half of the vehicles he saw had a power brake booster with the wrong type of hose going from the engine vacuum source to the brake booster.
