Curious to know if anyone can tell me what the black vacuum line that is behind my instrument cluster is for. This is on a 1984 2.2Ldiesel chassis, now converted to gas. The drivetrain is out and the speedo being upgraded to digital and I found a vacuum line, but there is no economy gauge. If you blow into it it comes out at the P/B booster
so its in the vacuum system. Why? All chassis from factory equipped but some not used?
Thanks for the insight.

The diesel used a vacuum proportioning valve for trans control. The vacuum was vented through a black line into the dash area. it did this so it wouldn't pull moisture or other trash in from under the hood.

It wasn't hooked to anything.
