EGR removal on SD!

just a quick question, after reviewing the previous posts i am still a little confused on the removal of the eger. I can clearly see how the main thing is removed but, what about the 2 vacum lines. i have blocked the one that goes from the black box on the valve cover to the part on the block. what about the line that that goes from the block to the actual EGR? i plan on removing the assembly this weekend. I have full acces to sheet metal and copper etc...I dont understand how to block off the part that is connected to the block, that looks like it is a copper nut with the 2 vaum line attatched to it.
-thanks

That is a temp sensative vacuum switch. Disconnecting it will not hurt a thing. BRian Carlton did an excellent write up on EGR rmoval, and disabling the 3-2 valves on top of the valve cover, and rerouting the vacuum system. Works like a champ!

Yes, you can pull them, but if you are not going to remove the 3-2 valves (Black box on top ov the valve cover) then you will need to plug the hole left by the vacuum line removal.

I do not know what electronic thing you are talking about.

Yes those vacuum lines can be removed. That electric thing is temp sensor IIRC.
