Vacuum pump elbow replacement

Recommended Posts

I popped my hood recently and found the vacuum line that runs from the firewall to the vacuum pump just laying there...still attached only to the firewall fitting that I previously replaced.  On closer inspection of the vacuum pump side where it is supposed to be connected I found that the rubber 90° elbow that receives it has now degraded to the point of failure. 

 

I've been looking online for a replacement rubber elbow but can't find anything specific to my truck...only come across HELP kits with several generics and ones that specifically fit Volvos and Mercedes.  They all look like they might work OK but can't be sure.  I'd really rather have the exact replacement instead of guessing at a cost for each wrong guess.  Can you guys give me some ideas on where and how to find it?  I appreciate any an all suggestions.

Yep that'd be my guess too.  I just got mine in today.  I'll get it changed out as soon as this heat eases up...98° today and feels like 113°.  I'll can only drink half my beer before the other half evaporates.

Now thats not good. I always considered the cooler as an essential tool box for a lot of repairs.

Sometimes Dripley gets in the cooler, when a hot day and when you try getting a beer, pecks your hand to shreds.

While I am in the cooler I only accept deposits. No withdrawals are allowed.

Sounds just like my cabal owned bank...they accept my direct deposits but can't withdrawal cash.  They closed up shop while the coronahoax is being played out.  Bunch of peckerhands...

Thanks for the reply @sooxies!  I did some more online digging and found this.  It's the entire assembly of lines and fittings with the one I needed all hooked together and all brand new for $13.82 and $9 shipping so I pulled the trigger on it.  Mopar part number is 55056421AA in case anybody else runs into this problem.

Price went up, how many kits did you guys buy :lmao:25.84 with shipping now, eBay is cheaper few bucks at this point.

I rigged up random hoses when I had to fix mine, for $20 I may have got this kit to clean it up but for $25 I just don't know now :ahhh:

It sure did...they went up $4 since I ordered.  Sorry guys...I didn't see that one coming.

Just installed mine yesterday...very easy compared to other things I've done to the truck.  I'm not sure if the extra $4 will affect install difficulty but I'm gonna guess that it won't.

Got this installed today, fit perfectly.  The connection between the main line from the pump and the first T-fitting was pretty rotten on my old assembly, probably why I would suddenly lose control of my A/C and cruise control.  Really glad this was brought to my attention and I didn't have to spend time looking for bits of hose.

Glad to hear it.  Mine was pretty much the same...it disintegrated in my hands.  I don't expect to have to address any vacuum leaks again...or at least not for many more years. :thumbup2:
