Brakes


#1

Can anyone tell me the difference between power-assisted brakes and power brakes? Thank you. abfunex


#2

They are the same.


#3

There is no difference.


#4

Somebody wasted too much ink on one of those types.

Power assisted brakes, also called simply power brakes, use the vacuum from the engine to pull one side of a diaphragm (called a booster) that’s physically connected to your brake system linkage and assists you in applying the brakes.

www.carbibles.com has a great primer on brakes. I strongly recommend a visit.

one costs you more, and has a prettier brochure, but they both do the same things.

in what context are you asking? did you read this somewhere?

just curious.
