    If your vacuum pump is okay, the most common problem is the brushes. They are cheap and easy to fix.

    There are numerous commercial (truck or equipment) applications that use 24V alts.

    Vacuum pumps can be had from Ford diesels and others. You may be able to source a vacuum pump at a performance parts store for hi-po gas engines that produce too little vacuum for proper brake operation.
