I have an 89 351W FS Bronco, and what looks like a black coffee can with 2 small hoses, mounted to my right wheel well apron. This is rusted and has holes in it. Can anyone tell me what this is for. There is no mention in the Chilton manual. Is it important? My truck runs fine the way it is.
It is a Vaccume resievor to keep vac when at full throttle or other low vac situations.
You say it's rusted through? check it for vac leaks, if it holds vac it's ok for now but will need to be replaced in the near future. If it will not hold vac get a new one.
This is mainly for your climate control (heater/ac) doors.

Thanks. I tried to get a new one from Ford and they said that it's been discontinued and the only one they have has only one connection for the hoses. I had to buy a vac check valve, make a small hole in the can and use epoxy to attach it. So far so good, it holds vac.
Has anyone relocated that stuff? I was thinking about trimming my fenders and adding some fender flares, but I would've had to remove the inner fender skirts (where that coffee can is mounted with a bunch of other stuff)I couldnt remove them because of all that stuff mounted on them. Anyone have any suggestions? should I forget about it? THANKS!
