Default What is this vacuum thing?

Hey guys! First time posting here!
Replacing all my vacuum lines on my 1984 4 cylinder ranger. While pulling a line off of this thing today, one of the plastic connectors on it broke off. So I need to replace it, but I have no idea what it is called. It was located to the left of the carburetor, and the three ports are labeled "Dist, Carb, and Main". If anybody knows what this thing is called that would be awesome! Or if I can just bypass it too?

It's probably the vacuum secondary for the carb. Being as your truck is over 30 years old, ford most likely doesn't sell it anymore. And you need that or else you won't get enough fuel under high throttle situations. You might be able to find it through advance auto or something, but your best bet would be a junkyard.

They look to be different part numbers. Does yours have the same amount of ports in the same location? For a 2.0l?

Its not my item but the part number that is on yours probably won't match a new part as it more than likely has been superseded at least 2 or 3 times. Do you have better pictures showing the ports?
