This IDI Online brand vacuum manifold is custom built in the USA, made of high-strength plastics, capable of good chemical resistance and heat resistance. It is rated to withstand up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. It also has good vibration and abrasion resistance.
Compatibility: According to Ford Parts Numbering System, this part is number E3TZ-9C490-B ( E3TZ9C490B ). In the 1988 Ford F-Series/Econoline/Bronco Service Manual, this manifold hub is part number 9C490. This manifold is remarkably similar to D40Z-9C490-A, which is situated in the Ford and Mercury Capri Mk1, 2, 3. Also, similar to D0OZ-9C490-A or D0OA-9C490-A, found on the 1970 Mercury Cougar, Ford Mustang, or 1970-71 Ford Torino. From the looks of the minor differences, the ports may be slightly smaller/larger, and it might require cutting off some excess with a razor blade to match the original. No guarantee that this IDI vacuum tree will fit on these other vehicles, but if you buy one and can’t make it work, feel free to return it for a refund.
Installation: This image details how the typical IDI vacuum manifold tree connected to the auxiliary systems. Depending on the type of transmission, climate control, and cruise control options, some of these ports were simply capped.
