Long shot since I know hardly anyone frequents here-

I found a vacuum leak on the 91 we just picked up. There's a hose that comes from below the lower intake up to where the lower and upper intake meet. There it has an "F" shaped fitting in it, with one hose going to the upper intake. The problem is the other end has nothing on it. No hose, no plug, nothing. Where is this supposed to connect to? I can't find any good diagrams for an 8-plug Mustang.


As an aside, has anyone had issues with the FL-1A oil filters wanting to weep at the base unless you tighten the hell out of them?

I am useless on the vacuum leak. As for the FL-1A, that is what is run on my dads 93 F150 and he has never had an issue with any sort of leak, it has 300k on it, and he always uses a motorcraft filter and valvoline oil.

I have an FL-1A on my relocation for the 4.3 that I'm dropping into my 03, and on the testing outside of the car, I had no issues with it. Have not run it on my 03.

I know neither of these is the exact setup you have but still good to know IMO.

For what it's worth I've only noticed it on the 2.3 blocks, everything else seems fine. The last one, and it was a fresh reman 2.3, you had to put almost a turn and a half on it past seated before it would stop leaking. Base was smooth to the touch, no double gasket, same experience with several filters, all Motocraft FL-1A. Just thought it was odd.
