Squirrel chewed vacuum lines

2005 F250, 6.0

That's right. Cleaned out a nice sized nest yesterday. After I found that the A/C wasn't working I looked closed, noticed she'd chewed ALL the vacuum lines where they attach to the pump. She also cut the wires that go to the accumulator or dryer, whatever that silver canister is on passenger side of the engine bay, towards the rear.

What I need is a diagram of those vacuum lines as I have no idea which ones go where. One of them I can tell because she left most of the line, but the others are have long sections missing. Guess she ate them? Stupid squirrel.

Anyway, any help with a diagram or a nice detailed picture of the pump and where the lines run to would be a huge help. Thanks.

Sorta. I think what's missing is the hub lock control piece.

I've got the A/C working again but i can't figure out how to get vacuum to the hubs... There are two lines coming out of the controller, one goes to the hubs I'm guessing but I don't know what to do with the other.

Got everything working but the 4WD...

If anyone has a picture of the red vacuum line that comes out of the hub lock controller thing, that would be much appreciated.

This is what the solenoid looks like. I have manual hubs and cant get you an actual picture.

I don't have a complete diagram, but I supect the solenoid is plumbed between the hublock vacuum reservoir and the hubs themselves. Just a guess...

Pulse Vacuum Hublock (PVH) Solenoid
Removal and Installation

Disconnect the pulse vacuum hublock (PVH) solenoid.
Disconnect the harness connector.
Remove the vacuum hose connector.

Remove the bolts and the PVH solenoid.

To install, reverse the removal procedure.

I really appreciate the schematic but, unfortunately, it doesn't tell me where the vacuum lines terminate after leaving the PVH.

Thanks though!
