Help... Rodent made a nest under the vacuum pump

Hey guys,

I need help with part numbers and/or diagrams for the vacuum lines around the vacuum pump... Something built a nest under mine and destroyed the vacuum lines. They chewed them off at:
- pump
- two lines at 4x4 lockout switch
- two lines at the vacuum can

I was able to unplug at the union a black line that parallels the grey one from the heater valve on top of the valve cover. This black line looked like it may have went to the 4x4 switch and routes towards the fire wall along with the one the one from the heater valve on top of the valve cover. The other one I was able to unplug from the union looks like it went from the 4x4 lockout switch down to the front axle.

What I cannot figure out is the routing between the pump, and vacuum can. I am thinking I am either missing another line entirely or one of the connection points on the pump, can, or 4x4 switch has a T on it.

Basically I have the following:
- intact union with a black line headed towards the fire wall running parallel to a grey line that runs from the heater valve on top of the valve cover. The chewed up side of this line looked like it went to the 4x4 selector motor on the fender.
- intact union on a black line that heads down to the frame rail towards the front axle. Again it looked like the chewed up side of this line may have connected to the 4x4 selector motor.
- The line coming off the vacuum pump was chewed off.
- the two lines coming off the vacuum can were chewed off.

I would much rather buy the vacuum harness from the factor vs. piecing it back together, as I am a bit anal-retentive.

The also took out the harness that plugs into the harness on the fire wall and plugs into the bottom of the heater box. I assume this is the blower motor resister harness? and the single larger (6 or 8 gauge) yellow wire that runs from the battery cable harness up to a single plug on the harness by the firewall.

I'll try to post some pics of the carnage...

That sux man! My bro had a squirrel problem at his house which ate thru his wiring harness on his truck and the rubber propane lines on his RV. Needless to say, he went on a mission to seek and destroy them varmints.
