    So, I replaced all the timing chains, tensioners, etc in my '01 Sport Trac 4.0...get it stuck back in, everything hooked up and started it.

    It ran about 4 seconds, sputtered, and proof. Fire.

    Found a bad o-ring road that fed the fuel rail and was spraying gas all around. Anyway, got the fire out and not much damage at all...except, the pcv tube was melted, and some of the vacuum lines were melted. Found the pcv tube...but I can't find these damn vacuum lines, anywhere. Ford couldn't even pull them up...granted, the local guy is new, but couldn't find them.

    Anyone have a part number? It's the offset line that runs from the intake, rolls around behind the intake, etc.

    I can post a pic if needed.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Only the PCV line comes complete.... the rest you may need to us universal stuff... nothing like that is available any more... trucks 18 years old.... or junk yard.
