front axle disconnect ?

does anyone have a diagram of the front axle disconnect vacuum lines?

I have a 83 waggy front axle that I am swapping into a s-10 bazer and need to know where the vac lines go.

plus I see alot of people refering to vacuum actuated hubs, I have never seen any waggy hubs with vacuum attachments on them, the huns on my 83 axle are the same as those on several 70's axles taht I have taken apart. Can anyone clue me in?

Re: front axle disconnect ?

Vac disconnect hubs means there is a vac operated motor, like an electrical solonoid (see '94-'01 Dodge 1500), on the axle tube that activates the hub on that side. You should have manually actuated hubs, which is the preferred style for a locker/limited-slip in the front.
If the S-10 had vac hubs, then you need to find the vac feed line from the t-case and plug it. Look in the library reference section for factory service manuals for those two trucks, or a tranny rebuild shop in your town. (You wanna look in Techtran manuals for the Jeep and Chevy.)
