It's a set of steel lines that run to the back (and front on earlier models) to simplify a lot of plumbing and is bolted to.....huh I seem to of forgotten.  :o
Anyways if the transmission or engine was dropped it would of needed to be removed and if someone modified the TC to be always-on it was removed and tossed.

I think that "vacuum block by the starter" is the answer I'm looking for, and that the line is non existent on my car currently. I was hoping to save crawling under to find it, but I think that it was expected.

   WOW .. holy [email protected]%T ... glad you're alive. This is why I don't try to avoid hitting a deer .. I took two deer head on, one in a '76 Hornet wagon and the other in a '83 Eagle .. both at highway speed .. because I had spare Eagles sitting around I was able to get both cars back on the road. Of course the deer were dead, but trying to avoid them sometimes is worst than just hitting the breaks and hoping for the best. So glad to see you made it through what looks like an un survivable accident .. Hope you find a new ride soon .. if you were closer to Maryland, I still have 5 Eagles in my yard.

I keep forgetting these cars changed a lot in their short timespan.  Mine is an 84.  The EVAP charcoal canister was right below it; black plastic can a lot like what MIPS was describing.  I looked where my hoses are routed; it took a little digging since they were both wrangled into the main wiring loom.  The larger one went to a port on the rear of the intake manifold, so straight up direct vacuum.  The other went to a check valve (those little round disc things you may see in various places with a line plugged into each side of the flat part) on the passenger side.  The other side of the check valve was the black vacuum line going to the 4wd block down by the starter.

Hope this helps. :) I did a major vacuum line delete so there may have been a tee eliminated somewhere.

I had to use a breaker bar in the wheel well with a wrench and a block of the wood in the engine bay to keep the whole bolt from spinning.

Just all the usual things to try before you end up cutting the bolt - heat, impact wrench if it will fit, breaker bar, or some combination of those.

Hi, currently trying to replace my front shocks and springs. Using a tool I bought from a texan off ebay who makes and sells them, very handy. I got the passenger side done in less than an hour. However, the drivers side upper control arm bolt is seized, and PB blaster has not proven helpful. Does anybody have a tip or advice aside from just cutting the bolt out and replacing it with a new one? The passenger side was far easier to get to and remove.

Any advice greatly appreciated
I have a 83 SX/4 and 80 Eagle wagon for sale. Both are not running due to rehabbing prior to becoming sick. The SX/4 has 40k original miles and 80 wagon mileage unsure of due to engine swap by previous owner.

I was in the middle of the dreaded oil seal replacement on the SX/4 prior to getting sick and I am unable to complete rehab. The wagon has a 4.0 motor swap and was running prior to gas line leaking.

Please, some one contact me with the purchase of both vehicles or pass this add on to someone you know might be interested. You will need a trailer to remove and help moving out of garage.

I had a for sale add up in the pass and a buyer interested in both but finance kept him from following with purchase.

I live in Baltimore city MD and have been a Den member since 2014. I cant remember how to get image inserted but you can contact me at 410.926.5520 for more information and email contact.

Mine is a plastic canister that bolts on the passenger inner fender below the ignition module. It has a large diameter hose run over the valve cover and to a port for Manifold vacuum close to the firewall.

I think I will wind up in the same boat honestly. I yave a 500cfm afb and supposedly a cam. Mine is a bit different than your coffee can but same idea.

There is a small line going into the car, but I think that is the heater water valve.
