Someone posted a message [deleted it before thinking] saying
that they are using an automotive A/C pump as a vacuum pump and
getting decent results from this set-up. How would one go about
setting up this arrangement? Does one just go the Midnight Auto
Supply [or other source], pick up a pump, put a motor and belt
on it and start working? Do you need some form of filter,
moisture extractor or whatever and if so what is used and where
in the system is it placed? Guess I’m asking for step by step
instructions and any other help that can be given.
Also, is this setup any ‘better’ than using a fridge condensor
and would the setup for a fridge condensor be the same as the A/C
pump except, of course, for the pump.
Thanks for any help
