Ford 6.9L / 7.3L IDI
Vacuum Regulator Valve Mechanical Conversion Kit
Fits 1983 - 1994
There are still tens of thousands of good reliable old IDI Ford Diesels running around the world - unfortunately, there are some parts that are getting to be very hard or impossible to find, and the Ford vacuum regulator valve (VRV) is one of them. The VRV bolts to the side of the injection
pump and receives a mechanical input from the throttle shaft which it
then converts into a variable vacuum signal that serves as an input to the vacuum modulator on the C6 automatic transmission.
The Ford vacuum regulator valves are plastic and are easily broken when climbing around the engine compartment. If your valve is broken or no longer
functioning correctly we have a solution. This kit replaces the vacuum
modulator on the side of the C6 automatic transmission with a mechanical
modulator which is then connected to an included cable that connects to
the throttle shaft on the injection pump. This system is simpler and
more reliable than the original vacuum setup.
