That looks like the right part -but is there another brand that can be used in place of Motorcraft? as I cant seem to find it in stock
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 3 years ago.
No, there is no aftermarket parts availablr for this, but Silverstate Ford Parts, online, has this in stock, go to there website and you can order it online, But if just the rubber hose is bad on this, any hydraulic shop can replace the rubber portion and re crimp it, and it will be alot less expensive,Tim
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Ok I will check out their website -I have found out that htis part can run anywhere from 180.00 to almost 500.00 - I dont want to spend 500.00 if I dont have to -I was hoping that there would be another brand that would work- Thanks for your help

Anytime my friend, tim
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
If there is hole in the alum. right by pressure switch -How can you fix that?
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 3 years ago.
this can be soldered, we have special aluminum solder that works great on this, it can also be tig welded, remove the line, and take it to any welding shop, and they can repair it for you, we do this all the time, and it would be alot cheaper then replacing the manifold assembly,Tim
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Thanks for all the help -I think that last reply is what we will try - Thanks again
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 3 years ago.
You bet, let me know if I can help further with this,Tim
