What was inappropriate about the GW inquiry for information that is required for the forum members to be able to provide correct / effective information to help?

From GW: "If you fill in your profile info it is easier for us to help."

That sums up GW and everyone else on this forum. We offer friendly help freely. YOU need to do YOUR part and let us know about YOUR vehicle. The assumption is the trim is Laredo based on your cladding.

It's cool though, I'll wait for the FSM to arrive, hopefully it'll give the information that I need, otherwise I'll hit up the junk yard and pull the dash on the one there, and just track where the lines go before fixing the one in my car.

I would agree and add one thing.....

When you've finished a repair on your ZJ and then coincidentally you have a different problem, take a look at the things you just worked on. Chances are you created the second problem while working on the first problem.

While this is true, there is a check valve that holds the vacuum, the purpose is to keep vacuum sufficient to operate the cruise control while climbing long grades. At greater loads are put on the engine the vacuum of the engine tends to decrease and the reservoir helps supply it.

GOLDWING There is a vacuum reservoir under the battery tray.

BorderWalker It had no visible outlet to collect fluid in case of a leak, and it went upwards from the battery tray, not down. Seemed to go back towards the firewall.

That wouldn't happen to be a Vacuum hose related to the heater and cruise controls, would it...?

Cause if so, I may have had an idiot moment.
