Sun Pro Vacuum Gauge Question

I Hope someone can suggest the easiest place to tie in my gauge vacuum hose, I am mounting the gauge in a pod on the windshield pillar drivers side of course. I hope that I can find a source under the dash other then the heating / Ac duct controls, they only get vacuum when the heating / ac controls are in the off position. My Ranger has the 4.0 engine. I can run the vacuum hose into the engine bay with no problem if I have to, but I do not want to tee into the master cylinder vacuum hose, it appears other tie in points in the Engine bay are limited ,
Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Glenn,
While standing in the front of the truck, just to the left of the coil pack near the top of the back of the intake manifold (but in front of where the vacuum brake hose connects) is the manifold vacuum supply for the EGR & other stuff. There are probably tiny plastic lines connected coming out of it but if you look under them there should be a 3rd nipple that is usually not being used that you can simply remove the cap and plug your line into.

If you can't see what I'm talking about PM me and I'll try to get a picture to you. Allan J.

Allan,
Your the Best !!! Thanks for the picture, that location was staring me in the face and I didn't see it.

I should have had my glasses on ! Any way if it warms up a little this weekend I'll give it a shot.

Thanks again.
Glenn
