    The intake for the pump was literally just a hole in the pump body, atleast on mine. There was only one big hose coming from the pump which went to the junction controlled by the two solenoids.

    On my '88 there was a rubber hose about 1/4" diameter that came off the smog pump and went to the cruise servo, I spliced into that line to have vacuum for my HVAC. Regardless of what it is the intake side of an air pump will create vacuum simply by the fact that it's pulling in air.

    You can just route the belt around the smog pump and abandon it in place. If the pulley is in the way, it unbolts.

    I think the vacuum connection thing came about later on. I don't recall seeing it on CFI cars.

    It may be a later thing, I havenít looked real closely at this one.

    Good news the eBay seller that sold me the turn signal lenses "MarkII Enterprises" is allowing me to return them hassle free. Bad news I really wanted those to work. The lenses with the emblem look so much better than the plain clear lenses.

    The goofy aftermarket ones in the car now have the housing that holds the bulb made one piece with the the lens. The originals had the lens glued on, so without some creative DIY that's beyond my skill level they weren't going to work. Plus if I screw one up in the process I'm totally shit out of luck because nobody and I mean nobody has a whole assembly for sale and when the do come up they're $500.

    Does anybody know where the box/module whatever it is for the door chime? Mine works fine but I have an idea I want to try.

    Usually located right side of the steering column under the dash. Look for the box with a speaker grill (lots of little holes in a circular pattern) on it. I think the stand alone cruise control modules are also located in that spot if equipped, but I could be mistaken on that one.

    Now that the Mark VI is in the garage for the winter I've been fiddling around here and there with some little odds and ends. Still trying to get the brake light to go out, I removed the bulb from the dash awhile back. I got bored the other day and put the light back in and it's stuck on. I pulled the plug off the sensor on the proportioning valve and stuck a jumper wire in it and the light went out. I tried contact cleaner but when I plug it in the light still comes on. I'm guessing either the pressure switch is bad or it's sensing low pressure, the later doesn't make sense to me as the brakes are just fine. Is this pressure switch still available? And if so is replacing it going to get me into a situation where I have to bleed brakes?

    Hey,
    I don't have any info on the brake pressure switch for you but I was wondering if you are familiar with the television series Supernatural? In particular I like Castiels' car starting in season 9.

    its not actually a pressure switch. it reads whether the slide valve in the prop valve assembly is moved one way or the other. Either its not centered, or the switch is just bad. No idea if its available or not.

    part number is D9BZ-2B254-A for all 80-83 Mark VI and basically everything else that uses that sort of valve assembly. Official name is "switch, brake pressure differential valve warning lamp"

    About 6 years ago I dated a girl who was really into Supernatural. We re started the series and I watched up until season 5 or 6 before I got burnt out on it. Anything over 4 or 5 seasons is just too much for me unless I really get into it.
