Brake Booster valve install help

Hey guys, my new brake booster vacuum valve just got here and I'm trying to install it. I got a new rubber grommit also.

I tried putting the grommit in first, then tried putting the valve in that, but it's sooo tight i'm afraid of breaking something. Should I put the grommit on the valve, then put it in the booster? Is there some secret to wedging these mofo's in there?

Thanks,

Bryan

I couldn't get the valve installed with the new grommit, so i gave the old grommit a try. It seemed a little bit larger, and it was a lot easier to get installed.

I'm worried, though, that the problem might not have been the valve being too tight in there, but that I was fighting the vacuum. Because the valve went in so much easier, i'm worried that it will leak.

Try using a little dishwashing soap to lubricate the rubber.
Once seated propelry, the valve will press right in.

You can also test for leaks using ether or WD-40 and see if it sucks it in. If it doesn't you should have a good seal. If it does suck it in, your rpms should go up.
