You can replace the vacuum system with a electric over hydraulic pump. Pump cost about $500 and probably $500 in labor to install and flush old fluid. But use someone who has done the conversion before.

Will I have to possibly replace the entire system if I cannot locate the 37 year part? And if anyone has had to undertake such a changeover, what would be a ballpark expenditure to do the same? thnks for your help.
