    Should be able to see map etc in this. Don't forget though that there is vacuum lines going inside the cab for cruise release, a/c control etc.

    thanks alright i got the problem fixed....all set...the one that went to the EGR valve were junk....but now i have another problem....when i was swapping in the new steering box one of the lines was real bad but didnt leak so we left it...well when i was stepping in the engine compartment i must of step on that because when i turned the truck on to see if the idle was set...and i jumped out i saw fluid on the ground...looked in the engine bay and saw fluid coming out of that aluminum hose and i can feel a crack in it..... :mad: :mad:
