You can try these links. It's sometimes easier to call them to find what you need plus they can tell you right then if it is in stock.

WholesaleMopar.com

NewJeepParts.com

From the link I posted above, here is what your looking for,

"Vacuum Reservoir XJ 1985-2001
This is a factory original part. This is a vacuum supply reservoir. This is what helps open and close you heating vent & actuator doors among other things such as the vacuum supply for the cruise control. This is for all Jeep Cherokees from 1985-2001."


and it list for $9.95. It's about a third way down on this page.

That is EXACTLY what I'm looking for Now I'll be a real pain, are there any schematics for the vacume tubes floating around in cyberspace? My canister has 2 tubes going into one end, and 2 nipples on the other without tubes. Thanx for the help!

Those are some HUGE files. Thanx for the help, but could you point me to the one for the vacume lines. It might take the rest of my life to download each one.

You've given me enormous help here so far, I'm almost there, but this shows everything but the football shaped canister in the bumper. There are 2 sets of lines that must be intake and output. It's also an 86 MJ if that matters, maybe changed thier system. Thanx again for the help!

Ok, lets step back for a moment. Do you have cruise control? I believe one side is used for the heater controls and the other side is for the extra vacuum needed for cruise control. They just cross connect the two sides. That canister is two separate tanks put together. My mj does not have cruise and has the small round canister with two hoses, so I can't just look at it to help you out. I assume that your setup would be the same as mine if you don't have cruise, it just uses two hoses and one side of that canister.

In the parts catalog I posted, look under Group 24 heating and AC, figure 24-2200. It shows the canister and the hoses plugging into them. If you look at the hose description, it denotes ones with and without cruise control. Hope this solves your problem.

Stepping back is always a good thing! No cruse control. I took some detailed pics:
http://i172.photobucket.com/albums/w...7/000_1234.jpg
the canister showing the 2 lines I do have...the small one is also broken
http://i172.photobucket.com/albums/w...7/000_1236.jpg
the other side of the canister where 2 other mystery lines should go (I blocked them) There is no evidence of any other lines that may have gone here.
http://i172.photobucket.com/albums/w...7/000_1241.jpg
where the smaller line goes
http://i172.photobucket.com/albums/w...7/000_1242.jpg
my silly little drawing

This definately looks original, there are two spots where it was mounted, and broke loose.
Does this help?????

Yep, you should only have the two without cruise. Like I said before the canister you have is actually two separate canisters put together. I was finally able to export from the pdf in the link above to show you the parts break down.



Yours hoses would look like number 7. No 6 is with cruise.

6 HOSE, Vacuum w/o Diesel Engine, w/Cruise Control
7 Vacuum w/o Diesel Engine, w/o Cruise Control

Wow, what a bizzare setup! A friend with a newer Comanche stoped by, he has the smaller softball shaped canister....with 2 lines. I pulled the larger line from the canister with the truck running...no change in engine noise. Plugged the line, and took it for a ride...no change. So seeing I only have defrost as it is, I broke open the remains of the canister. Yes, it is 1 football shaped canister, with a solid wall in the middle, making it 2 seperate canisters I don't see why I can't just use one of my buddy's "newer" canisters with 2 outlets! Vacume is vacume! Besides, by the time I get this problem fixed, it will be warm here!!!!!!!!!!! Thanx for all your help, youv'e transformed me from a bewildered kitten to someone who now has a direction!

I put the softball under my hood because the bumper mounted football always gets scrunched!
