gasoline engine driven vehicle is furnished. When the vacuum system of the gasoline engine
driven vehicle is used, it shall be isolated from the brake system to prevent loss of braking power;
a cylindrical stainless steel reservoir having a volume of not less than 300 cubic inches shall be
provided in the suction line to reduce loss of vacuum during vehicle acceleration; and a check
valve, TRlCO part number 85590-42 or equal, shall be installed in the suction line between the
reservoir and the vacuum source. All suction lines shall be adequately supported to prevent
chafing from movement and vibration. Whenever the line passes through bulkheads, grommets
