vacuum line

Hey guys, my vacuum line that controls the vents broke off at the "Y" engine wiring harness...
So should i just cut back the loom and use a small coupler with new tubing to reconnect to the intake?

Mine broke in the same spot, after doing plugs, ICM, coil and OPTISPARK. I have about 1/2 " of the vacuum pipe, protruding from the harness.

I temporarily slipped a piece of vacuum hose on, but it's too loose. works OK w/ engine running, looses vac w/ shut off. I ordered a spool of the correct size vac hose(I think it's 7/64", but I can't check now). I plan on warming the hose in warm soapy water and slipping it on. I'll update size/results w/ I complete.

IMO the OE setup is cheesey. My Ford's use a strong vaccum pipe "tree" to supply dashboard.

God Bless America!

My line melted on my headers. I took a section of the plastic line to the parts store and matched the plastic OD to the ID of rubber line and ran that in place of the plastic line.
