I have a problem stopping in this 71 vette. The brakes are firm but only slowly stop the car. You have to really push hard to get the car to slowly stop and then hold it hard to keep it stopped. The motor has a ¾ cam and lopes. I thought it might be a low vacuum so I re-routed the vacuum lines from the intake manifold to the canister for the head lights. This seems to help a little but didn’t correct the problem. I suspect it might be the power booster but with the engine noise when the car is running, one can not hear a leak. The booster is about five hundred dollars and I didn’t want to spend that if it could be the proportioning value or something else. You guys have any thought on this?
