If it is just a vacuum T or coupler, there's no reason why you couldn't match or fab something from the HELP! section of an auto store. I can't really tell what the hell that thing is from the pic though. I'd just bring that part with you to the store and see what can be matched to it.

It should just be a rubber elbow. Maybe that S hosey piece. Bring it in to a GOOD auto parts store and they should be able to match it up with something.

You may have to match that by fitting a hard plastic tee or H in its place and using small gauge vac hose to connect to the rest of the manifold. If you reuse the old nylon vac lines you will want to use black RTV or some such to glue the thing together.

Warning - my old nylon lines had become somewhat brittle with age, at the points where the original connectors glued onto it.

very excited, got some of my parts today.


The guy on the site had to find some parts that I've requested so they are soon on their way.


Now is this a plug and play or is their certain cleaning involved that I should know about. I took a bit of time to get the parts and I want to install them correctly.

Vacuum lines should be plug and play.

use a wet/dry vac or air compressor to blow the dust away and have a rag handy for wiping off stray oil or grease (for your convenience not really a need); starting with the central monster manifold connector work your way out line by line, following the old routing.

IF you have any around... consider putting silicone grease (not silicone spray, the carrier in it tends to dry out your rubber, rather the tune up boot grease for spark plugs and weatherstripping) on the rubber you're installing.
