Wanting to make the braking a little easier I bought from amazon a brake servo kit which was confirmed etc. It arrived a week early and complete except for instructions. Does anyone have such an instruction set. BX is responding but at glacier speed - I hope I am not tangled up in their political issues. I hope BX has a site for downloading instructions.

Pipe from master cylinder goes in at the side of the servo master cylinder
Pipe from end servo master cylinder goe to brakes.

A rubber pipe connects between inlet manifold and servo body.

In reply to # 34001 by Midhurst80 Wanting to make the braking a little easier
Easier = puts the full range of Minor brakes within your "Skilled Operating Zone"
Also equals "Safer"

Thank you Mike. I rec’d an email today asking me to find the material in the “installation”. Probably a translation issue, but at least they opened a line of communication through Amazon. On the other hand your response is what I needed.
Thank you. With so many of the team on line chatting about the brake servo i expect no problems from here on. However I am a little nervous about drilling a hole for the vacuum into the manifold. I have an HS2 carb with a vacuum for the distributor advance but none other for vacuum gauges or power brake servo. Again, thank you for the diagram.

Until someone proves otherwise,
I reckon you can drill and tap
the black insulator that goes
between carb and manifold Bob.

Although, I think I would use
a 1/8th BSW barbed hose fitting.
