Ford 1710 Vacuum Hose?

Hey guys,

There is a rubber hose that runs between the glow plugs on my 1710, I'm assuming it is some sort of vacuum hose? Can anyone confirm it's function, and does anyone know where to get a replacement that is the same size? It is very small and I haven't had luck at local auto shops.

Thank you,

Are you sure it is between the glow plugs? The injectors have a small diameter vacuum hose returning to the fuel tank. Measure the ID and check for oil resistant tubing of that size. It's probably around 1/8" which is very common.

I'm sorry, I think you are right, it is between the injectors. 1/8" sounds like it would be spot on. Thank you very much!

Re: Ford 1710 Vacuum Hose?

I believe Robhay is right--if its the small fuel return hoses ,I have used tygon hose used on weed whackers on my 6.2 GM diesel ,it requires no clamps (the original hoses did and those tiny squeeze clamps are very difficult to get at to attach the hoses)--
Tygon is very resistant to diesel fuel,unlike ordinary vacuum or windshield wiper fluid hose,that diesel will eat thru quickly..I've had a piece on my truck over 3 years and its holding up fine..

A diesel shop nearby gave me some 1/8" nylon air brake tubing the day mine started leaking as I was near their shop one day,said that is what they use,that had to be softened up by applying a flame from a cigarette lighter on the end before it would go over the barb fitting,once it did and cooled,it is air tight and needs no clamps..it is pretty stiff and harder to worth with,the Tygon is soft and flexible like surgical tubing used in hospitals..

Though cheap vinyl hose could "get you by" to get the tractor back to the shop,I wouldn't trust it or vacuum tubing very long..
