Well that’s another oil leak cured! Brake servo vacuum pump.


This job is a nice easy one, the write ups I’ve seen tell you to have number one piston at top dead centre, well me being me didn’t bother with that (mainly because I had no assistant). Remove the air filter canister by simply disconnecting the air hoses, release the two buckles and hoik it out of the way.


Disconnect the brake servo vacuum hose using 10mm socket undo and remove the 6 bolts that hold the brake servo vacuum pump to the engine block, NB you may hear a bit of squelching and slurping if you’re not TDC, don’t worry it’s just the pump piston thingy which actuates from the camshaft (must be spring loaded, if you do the TDC bit there will be no compression on the piston). This is the bit I discovered all but one of my 6 bolts were finger tight!!! Remove the pump (cleanliness is important, don’t drop it in crud), give it a wipe; you will get a small amount of oil drip out.
