Does anyone have the vacuum hose schematics for a 5.7 throttle body 1991 motor. The previous owner made a mess of my vacuum hoses and I need to fix them. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

There should be a sticker on the front radiator core support the describes the emissions setup with vacuum hoses. I'll try to get a pic of mine later tonight. For the other vacuum hoses, a Haynes or Chilton manual might have it.

If it would help, I could snap some pictures of my truck and post them.

It is a '91 350
It has had an Eddlebrock Intake put on it, but still stock TBI

Let me know and I will post it.

This is looking at the TBI from the front.
There are 3 hoses, the one on the left goes over to a sensor, I can't recall its name
The one in the middle goes to the valve cover, the one on the right w/ the black plastic wrap around it, is coming from the canister behind the headlights.
That line inbetween the left and middle hoses, is a bundle of wires for powering the injectors.

This picture is from the back, there are two fuel lines and the hose in between them goes over to the MAP sensor.

This is from the back of the TBI also, just from the driver's side of it.

That is the MAP sensor I believe that the hose on the back goes into.

Hope this helps you.
Let me know if something else is needed.

Thank you! This is definitely not how mine are currently routed. Now I can fix them and diagnose any other problems from there. Thanks again!

Ok question...on the map sensor there are two hoses. Which one goes to the throttle body and which one goes to the vacuum canister on the intake? Also there is another vacuum line at the rear of the intake manifold where does that connect to? There is also one more on the firewall itself going to the round canister by the firewall where does that attach? Thanks for all your help.

I'm sorry it isn't the map sensor that those other hoses go to its the rear if the sensor the neither of us know the name of lol.

Ok, I think that sensor is the EGR Control Solenoid


The one you mentioned on the firewall, is that located on the driver side of the firewall??
Big round thing??

If so that is the brake booster, and his vaccuum is attached to the front of the intake
His hose is located beneath the TBI, and actually goes into the intake on the front side, next to the driver side valve cover.
If you look at picture two above, that is the line that is located right above the word "PERFORMER" stamped into the intake.

That EGR Solenoid is attached to the under side of the Electronic Spark Control Module.

I will give that a look in the morning and let you know.
Been busy all day, so just saw this now.....


Waiting for my A/C components to come in, so hoping to be rebuilding my A/C system some time this week. :D
Oh joy.

Glad to help.

You can get a volt-meter and test your TPS.
You will just need to get some sort of probe that you can stick down where the wires connect on him...
I used a straight pin for mine, with gator clips.

(You may need a second pair of hands also)

once your probe is set, then just move the throttle through its range of motion and the voltage should increase/decrease accordingly.....
TPS is easy to replace, but I doubt it is your problem....
What exactly is the issue you are exprienceing?
