2000 Magna Vacuum Hoses

I posted this on the Yahoo Group and I still need some help.

I had the steering gearbox rebuilt a couple of weeks ago and after it was reinstalled the upper vents on the dash were no longer working. The shop worked on figuring it out for awhile but I ended up taking the coach home with the problem. Logically something was messed up when they were reconnecting the vacuum hoses after the install but it was also possible that it was a problem in the dash.

As of today I have the dash air working correctly but I have one air hose that I have no idea where it goes or what it does and the other main vacuum hose, while working, doesn't look correctly installed (pulled too tight). In the attached pics I am holding the hose with unknown function and in the other that hose is just attached to a plug on the pump and you can see the main vacuum hose attached to the vacuum ball.

So - what I really need is a couple of pics of the correct configuration of the vacuum hoses in the forward (under the driver's seat) electrical compartment of a 2000 Magna. I specifically need the hoses going to/from the vacuum pump and the vacuum "ball".

My phone number is 817-366-5731. If someone has a 2000 Magna in the DFW area and is willing to let me take a look at that compartment in your coach that would also work.

I appreciate any expertise you may have and pass along.

The ball is the VACUUM RESERVOIR; The CLASS-C Ford chassis uses small RED PLASTIC tubing (inside black corrugated sleeves) to carry engine vacuum to firewall, then it changes to BLACK PLASTIC that goes to Reservoir and CHECK-VALVE, then black plastic through firewall to under-dash. Assume F53/ Class-A was originally similar. Small id (1/8" ID?) rubber hose works well to splice/ repair the plastics?
