Another what is this thing question in my 70 Bon. engine bay ?


 Hi evryone,

  I was wondering what is this or the purpose of that " black drum like thing " on the firewall, beside the underhood light behind the dual snorkel air cleaner ? Thanks

 If I have it correctly, that should be the vacuum resovoire? For vacuum controlled items such as the a/c-heater and cruise, if need be. It should have a small hose going to it from a vac source at the intake manifold.
 (Thanks to Mark for showing me how to enlarge pictures, I feel important!!)

vacuum reservior, stores vacuum for instances of low engine vacuum(wot/climbing hills), keeps the hvac from defaulting to defrost mode when vac is low.

It likely has 2 hoses going to it, with one of them having a one way valve so that when the engine vacuum drops it doesn't lose the vacuum but keeps it supplied to the source as mentioned (defroster, cruise or whatever.)

I believe it is still a reserve for vacuum for heater, etc. but I forget how they do it with one hose on it.

It's a vacuum reserve cannister that supplies vacuum to ac and heater.

when engine is under load with little or no vacuum.smile

It might only need one line. It stores just store vacuum like as air compressor reservoir stores pressure.

It could also have a check valve in it to prevent it losing vacuum when manifold vacuum drops. In that case, I'd expect it have one line connected to manifold (with a check valve in it) and a second line going to whatever system requires the vacuum.
