    What vacuum accessorys are necessary to keep on a 6.2 diesel. Any help would be great. Thanks.

    My '79 doesn't use any vacuum accessories after converting over to 6.2L. I just replaced the vacuum brake booster with a hydroboost.

    If equipped, the A/C controls would be about all you need the vacuum pump to do.

    If running a TH400 behind the 6.2L, you'll also need a vacuum supply to control the tranny shift points.
