Adding a ram-assist requires additional fluid pressure and volume for maximum effectiveness. This diagram shows plumbing for a system that includes an extra-capacity remote reservoir, a brake hydro-boost, a cooler, and a hydraulic-assist cylinder. (We used an ’87 K30 hydro-boosted brake master cylinder with OE-style hoses to upgrade our ’75 K10’s stopping power. High-pressure lines are shown in red, low-pressure in blue.)
