air injection tube

Im new here but could use some help. I'm getting my '81 F100 back on the road for my daughter and need a new air injection tube. It's a 300 straight 6 and I'm in California so I can't just do without. The last time it broke the dealer said it is no longer available so I fixed it. Well it is rusted out beyond repair now. LMC truck sent the wrong one and my local parts store can only get the wrong one. This one curves up in the back to accept a vacuum switch that is also connected to the exhaust. I bought the truck new and this is how it came. Does anyone know where to get one or how to get around this issue without moving to another state?

did you contact LMC about getting the right one or refunded on the wrong one?? their Customer service team is great about fixing mistakes.. if its discontinued you may need to either custom fab one if its a hard line or get a shop somewhere to make it.. had to get some ac hoses custom made once when they were discontinued...

E1TZ-9B445-A .. 300 I-6 Exhaust Air Supply Manifold-Use with CA emission / Marked: E1TE-9H445-AB / Obsolete

1981 E & F100/250.

No Ford dealer or obsolete parts vendor has any.

What the difference is between this & D6TZ-9B445-A (see post #3), I don't know.

Thanks for all of the help. I think the difference is one (the one I have) simply puts air into the exhaust. The one I need puts air to the back of the engine compartment where a vacuum controlled valve changes between post catalytic converter exhaust and said air. don't ask me why I can only guess it's a California thing.

So I looked at the one on Rock auto and it is the same as I have. The difference is as stated above.

So Bill are you saying that they are in fact not to purchased anywhere that you know of? You do seem to be the best info I've found. If I have to have one made the one they sent may be a good starting point.

No one has any of E1TZ-9B445-A

Maybe Gary can help you, he's an authority on these trucks and has put together a "garagemahal" for them.

It's an air injection tube from the air pump into each cylinder.
The one on rock auto is as close as you get aftermarket.
Ford no longer makes the part
You may find one in the junk yard, but the condition will probably match yours

You may find one in the junk yard, but the condition will probably match yours, and be just as hard (maybe harder) to remove.
Fixed it for you...

These tubes were crap, some thread into a large nut, but when you attempt to turn the nut, the tube twists and splits open.
