One further possible quirk noticed just before getting home, is that it 
appeared that vaccuum drops 2 or 3 inches when making a sharpish rh turn!!!
Further investigation needed I think :lol:  Does orientation[ rotation] of 
vane pump have any effect upon operation?

Quantum Bentley $46 delivered to UK. I suppose it is a heavy book. but I 
thought we were the 52 state of America ;op
