If you can push the vacuum handle down while covering the vacuum
hole with your finger, or you notice a puff of air coming from the
vacuum hole on the up-stroke of the vacuum pump, you need this kit.
Poor vacuum performance in these 40+ year old machines can be
caused by three things: A failing flapper valve, a dry and dirty
cylinder bore, or a leak in the seal between the cylinder bore and
the upper platform. This kit addresses all three problems and
will restore your VAC-U-FORM machine to better than new performance.
This kit will improve the vacuum performance up to 3" Hg on a
normally operating machine.
Requires drilling the existing vacuum hole to accomodate an
oversized medical grade silicone valve (High-speed drill bit included).
Includes one-time-use silicone sealant, Ultra-seal cylinder lubricant, and instructions.
