Reading on the bendix systems in these vans, Which as far as my knowledge goes was only used up until 1993 (This first 'electronic' system as referred to in my haynes manual).

What I'm wondering is, What system replaced this in the 1994-1995 model-year vans? I'm having some trouble with my system which I have determined is a bad fitting in a line, going from the booster to the ABS pump. I would like to read more on this system, and would like to try and determine if it's worth it to try and delete the ABS system and just convert to power-brakes. Or to just get the line fixed (or fitting) and keep on driving.

The brakes, again, were a victim of my "let's not look for a leak, let's just assume a part went bad" mentality. Which my first guess was the drum brakes, Which I figured was why my brake fluid was leaking out quickly, "I didn't rebuild the rear brakes, only the front. so that's the problem".

So, i go through all the brakes, Still leaking. and I'm at a loss as to where the leak is coming from, until I see brake fluid on my transaxle, and smell burning brake fluid while I'm driving, and i stop at a stop light. so then it clicks, Fluid must be squirting out of the booster when I depress the pedal. so, having a friend push on the pedal while I watch under the hood. I've determined it's one of the rigid lines coming from the booster going into one of the center "inputs" on the booster (Facing the rear of the booster, Looking towards the front of the car). I have a photograph of where-about the leak is coming from in another post titled "looking for information -- ABS parts" or a similar name.

This is a bit of a convolluted post, But the point is, My ABS is leaking and I'm trying to figure out the best course of action to fix this leak, that is squirting brake fluid onto the exhaust manifold. I go through a resovuar of fluid every 100 miles. So, I guess i'm trying to find out exactly what types of fittings are on the ABS pump and the booster. and how exactly I should repair this, or if I should just send it in a shop and let them diagnose and repair the leak. Because surely they know more about brakes than i do haha

In the Minivans the Bendix-10 was used in modelyear 1991, 1992, 1993. (and probably/maybe some 1990 first gens)
For 1994 and 1995 the Bendix-10 was replaced with the Bendix-4 system.
