  1. These numbers vary greatly from application to application/vehicle to vehicle and are from various sources. Tensioner: ~0 kW Actually some resistance (negligible) AC: 4 bhp Many numbers much higher (especially on demand) Alternator: 5-6kW (7-10bhp) 1.9 torque 10 bhp full load Water Pump: 10kW (13hp) Davies Craig number. 6.2 to 6.4 torque 1.1 bhp at 2000rpm, 8.6 bhp at 4000. Power Steering: 2-4kW 6.8 to 8.3 in torque 2 to 4 bhp
  2. This isn’t exactly the switch I used but similar. Installed this system a few years ago. I removed not only the vacuum pump but also the water pump. I replaced it with Davies Craig electric pump.
  3. Here's a picture of my layout.
  4. I mounted mine next to the front bulkhead fusebox, its actuated by a small adjustable vacuum switch. Runs to a vacuum reservoir. Only needs to activate momentarily to keep the tank pressurized. Works a treat.
  5. Mine was fine at .004 with coated JE asymmetricals and iron liners.
