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
