Fox Body Mustang 5.0L Vacuum Tree - 5.0Resto (86-93)
See this 5.0Resto 5.0L Vacuum Tree here:
1986-93 Mustang 5.0L VACUUM
Brand: 5.0Resto Ford Original Tooling
Part #: LRS-9490A
Fits: Ford Mustang GT LX
5.0L V8 (except SVT Cobra)
Years: 1986 (86) - 1987 (87) - 1988 (88) - 1989 (89) - 1990 (90) - 1991
(91) - 1992 (92) - 1993 (93)
The 86-93 Ford Mustang with
a 5.0L V8 has a vacuum tree that is the "distribution" center/source for
the A/C, Power Brake & Cruise Control systems. This plastic piece is prone
to breaking and cracking from heat, wear and tear. It is located on the
driver side firewall near the brake Booster.
A broken or cracked vacuum tree can lead to any of the attached systems to
stop working due to loss of vacuum. A common issue is the A/C is blowing
out of the defroster vents and not the A/C vents. If you haven't replaced
your vacuum tree, be sure to check your the next time you are under the

1979 Ford Fairmont a Closer Look -EricTheCarGuy
Many of you have been asking me about Fairmont videos so I thought I would
make this one where I take a closer look at what I have to work with. I
also talk about some of my plans for this car going forward. I think I have
a really nice 'shell' to work with. I have my work cut out for me that's
for sure, but as I say in the video, that will just make for more
interesting videos. For now, I think I'll drive it. It's a good car after
all. A few minor issues, but nothing to really worry about. I may do some
of the repairs such as the inner tie rod in an upcoming video. I just need
to work out the alignment when I'm done. Looks like an easy job though,
easier than some of the other power steering rack stuff I've done. Anyway,
enjoy the video.
Here's some links.
