Called a shop to get a price on a rebuilt transmission for a 1984 190D. They said it was $xxxx plus $80 for a vacuum box. He said that model year 190D has them and they need to be replaced. Where is it located? What does it look like. Where can I get one?

I presume that they are refering to the vacuum proportioning valve. This is the device that taylors the constant vacuum of the engines vacuum pump into a vacuum signal that resembles a gas motor (zero at full throttle to 15 inches at idles or there abouts).

I hope they diagnosed all this as there should be no reason to replace either unless something is wrong.
