    performance wise, is there any difference between the two, both assuming vaccuum assist. is there any more fluid moved, or a higher pressure?

    thanks.

    You wont find a 1 ton with vac assist, you'll have to drop back to 3/4 ton.

    I'm not real familiar with the later plastic resevoir stuff but when dealing with the earlier iron resevoir type m/c's a 3/4 ton version typically has a larger resevoir.

    thanks

    and, im not sure if the 1 ton ever came with a vaccuum booster, but i have listings at work so, i ordered it. $18

    and upon further research, the 3/4 ton and 1 ton vacuum booster master cylinders are the same number....

    so i guess now i have another question, is the 3/4 ton vaccuum assist also a larger bore?
    and does a hydroboost master cylinder bolt up to a vaccuum booster....?

    thanks again
