Break booster pump

I'm I on the right track? My breaks are hard and I don't get much breaking. Seems like the I lost the power breaks. Is this a sign of the booster going bad. How much of a job is it.

Thanks for the help.

I think If you are talking about the vac-pump, if you ac/heat duct system works while you apply your brakes it is probually good.

Mikey,
Just tried it and it didn't change from defrost to vents while my foot was on the break. So I guess I need a vac-pump. How hard of a job is it?

Thanks
Hunter

hardest part is getting the old pulley on to the new one if it doesnt come with it. Rent a pulley puller and it just pops off, other than that, take the belt of, remove vaccum line , unbolt the old one and bolt in the new one

My '99 vacuum pump is electric, when you turn the key on you should hear it doing a fast click, it is mounted on the ps inner fender, mine stopped and I lucked out, it was the connection.

94-97 trucks dont have electrical vacuum pumps, they are mechanical and are driven by the serpentine belt

The pully isn't poping off with a puller. Any hints? Heat?

Thanks
