Mystery Vacuum Hose in Engine Bay 1990 XJ40 4.0

Postby Broadsword » Sun Apr 29, 2018 6:07 pm

Hello All,

I've had my 1990 XJ40 4.0 Sovereign from January and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. It's biggest feature is the lack of rust, but there is some work to do putting other bits and bobs right. One thing that I haven't been able to figure out is a mystery vacuum hose in the engine bay, which comes from underneath the chassis leg. Any pointer's as to where the other end goes would be greatly appreciated. Picture attached.

Thanks. I didn't know they had one, but that would make sense. The battery at the moment is a bit of a lash up. The original bracket is missing (I have my own solution to lash it down as a temporary bodge) and I can't fine a replacement. The current battery doesn't have a suitable port to attach to the vent, but I could try and fashion an adaptor.
