Default vacuum hose help.

Hi, I'm new to the forms.

I have 1998 Ranger XLT 4x4 with a 4.0 OHV and it's got a lose vacuum hose and I can't find where it connects to. the truck runs and starts fine.
I know it does not go to the hubs because I just replaced the lines that go to the hubs and they lock and unlock just fine.
if some one knows where it connects or can give me a tip on where to look for where it connects that would be great.
thanks.

That vacuum hose is supposed to plug into the top lid of your "top-hat" recirc valve that's visible in the top right of your 3rd photo, just to the left of your 3 spark plug wires. The valve is about 1.5" dia. and 1.5" tall, and operates that crooked dog-leg metal wire, by vacuum.

thanks for the quick reply.

It makes sense now that some one pointed it out.
I can't believe that I didn't think to look at the heater valve its obvious where it connects now.

thanks
