One of the parts I know I'll need is a vacuum pump for the brakes. What kind
of specifications should I be looking for?

Also, should I just jump on this one right off?

I did see that thread. I just wanted a second opinion on if this pump would
be big/powerful enough to service an EV.

Thanks!

Actually, now that I've done more looking on Gast's website, I'm not sure.
They seem to say that the model number ROA-P101-JH is a 'pressure' model,
not a 'vacuum' model. Does that mean it's exactly what I *don't* need, or
can I still use it for vacuum?
