I fitted a remote servo to my 51 TD over 10 years ago and have been very please with it. The servo is fitted on the L/H side of the car in the space above the rear axle. The manifold is tapped at the centre and piped with 1/2" copper pipe along the chassis but with vacuum hose at each end for flexibility.
