Vacuum hose routing
#1
I swear I've read every (and there are MANY) posts related to vacuum hoses, and I've reviewed each and every diagram.  I still can not find a diagram to match my configuration:  '73 351 4V automatic and a/c.  I tagged every hose going to or from the PVS and TCV valves before sending the engine out, but when I got it back from the machine shop:  a few hoses misplaced and none were still tagged, so I'm having to figure it out.

There are diagrams for a 351-4v w a/c and auto, but they don't match what I have under the hood.  Referencing the Ford Shop Manual diagrams posted by DonC for example, I should find my config in 3-14A (attached).  Thing is... I can not find the normally open solenoid valve marked #5 (for PVS valve outlet #2 and the distributor vacuum advance).  I'm assuming it's the same sort of valve as the normally open solenoid valve marked #4 (which is there on my engine and matches the diagram's location) but where the heck is #5?  Under/behind what?  The other thing is, a solenoid valve will have wires and I have no wiring unaccounted for so I just don't think I have the valve indicated as #5 or at least not in the location indicated for #5.  If there is no #5, is the correct routing a direct hose from PVS port 2 to the vacuum diaphragm?

None of my existing hoses have any of the check valves indicated in the diagram (should I be concerned?)  And another thing... the firewall mounted loop (#12 in the diagram) in my car is actually 4 ports.  Not sure that matters to this discussion.

Onward, onward, onward...

Will have to find it but I have a copy of the Osborn Factory assembly manual that Ford used. The pictures are so light in the manual it is difficult to see when in hand. I will look when in garage this afternoon. Going to sit in workroom and deer hunt this afternoon. I got two last year. I have a 4,000 sq. ft. hunting stand, lol.
What was DSO for your car. I think California was different will not swear. Do you have the sticker that was on the valve cover I think it also tells the calibration and set up of your engine. Here is pic of the sticker. This is a Charlotte, NC DSO code engine.[Image: DSC-0961.jpg]

Was built at Dearborn, first sale in Long Beach so CA emissions I 'spose. My tag reads KK620AG ("2" is behind the pipe)

Found this as fordification.net -- fascinating site.  Factory made for California (KK) non-air pump egr engine 620 (Q code; 351-4V) Revision A with Air Conditioning.

RC92234,
Looking at the pic of the valve cover you posted, looks like you may want to look at diagram 3-16A.
Here is a link to a previous post that has some vac diagrams for 71-73.
https://www.7173mustangs.com/thread-vacu...#pid246021

3-16A does not show using valve #5 for a 73-351-4bbl-AT. Doesn't show any of the check valves or an ambient temp switch either, but your engine feed harness should have 2 additional wires branched off with the oil pressure lead to connect valve #4. I have pics of a feed and the harness that shows items 10 and 11 if you need.

As far as the loop(s) on the firewall, is it possible you have a part that has 2 - 2 post loops in a single piece? Have attached pic that was taken off another post on this site.

Curious now. Do you still have items 10 and 11 installed? Never seen those in real life with the 2 piece spedo cable. If not installed, then valve #4 may not matter?

Starting with the last question (10 and 11 installed?) I will have to look and see.  Those parts aren't under the hood.
The problem with 3-16A is the temperature control valve shown only has two ports; mine has 3.
And yes, the four-port loop is actually two-loops formed together (but not cross linked).  
If you send me the pic of the harness, I'll check.  Thanks!

EDIT: Goodness... I think I misspoke about the temperature control valve. I do have the 2-port temperature control valve installed in the heater hose. I *also* have a PVS valve installed in the water pump. It's the routing from the PVS that is giving me the woe.

I have always been a bit confused over the combinations of harnesses and vacuum lines and parts. So not sure if any of this will help.
I use config 3-15A as I have a 351c-4bbl-MT. Only got into the vacuum/emissions stuff because I wanted to know why I had leads on my feed harness that went to nothing. Seems a harness could fit several configurations.

I only have the 2-port PVS in my setup but it is not on the water pump. It is inline with the heater hose. Original Ford part. 
Pics attached. My understanding is/was that when the configuration required both 2 and 3 port PVS's, there was no place to put the second PVS as the 351-c water pump only had threaded holes for 1? Guess the heater hose idea stuck on other configurations. Could be what you need.

The harness Pics are not mine. Again, taken from other posts. Looks like a feed harness for 3-14A. I believe # 7-8 (Brown and Red/Yellow) are for the rear valve and 9 is oil pressure. #2 would have gone to the valve on the left front if needed. My harness has a red lead with up front by #2 and nothing extra back with the oil pressure switch. Almost like they planned on putting a valve in the front?? (More confusion for me...) Don't have that Pic handy, but can find it if you want to see it. 

Note the single wire in the last Pic that has something to do with the valves and comes through the firewall high up and near center. Think the rest is tucked in near the left kick panel and then goes speed sensor and??????

Does anybody have this harness and could verify the wire colors and where the wires go?

1.  #369 brn/ora hash to spark delay valve bypass solenoid
2.  # 57 bla to spark delay valve bypass solenoid
3.  ?
4.  #16 red/lt. grn stripe to coil +
5.  #39 red/whi stripe to water temperature sensor
6.  #4 whi/bla stripe to choke
7.  #640 red/yel hash to egr cutout solenoid
8.  #81 brn/yel dot to egr cutout solenoid
9.  #31 whi/red stripe to oil pressure sensor

The 2-port valve in the heater hose is a temperature control valve, not a PVS as is mounted in the water pump.  Check the manual again - that's what's in shown in configuration 3-15A.  I do have the tcv in the heater hose, but also the PVS in the water pump.  And my configuration doesn't use a distributor vacuum advance control (#17 for 3-15A); that location has a solenoid.

I stand corrected. Happens too often. The diagrams I have do name the 2 port unit as a Temp Control Vac Valve and not a PVS. You are also correct that with my having a Manual Transmission, I do not use/have either of the solenoid valves, but use the DVAC (#17 for 3-15A).
A pic that may help, but from a 351c-2V and not a 4V. (#5 for 3-14A config mounted on the valve cover). Note that Vac lines showing are not correct and simply looped around.

JUST READ YOUR EDIT-----------
Being you have a Q code, is it possible that you should use config 3-16A and not have/need a PVS or the #5 sol. valve, Etc.? Your valve cover decal pic shows 16A in the upper right corner. Maybe earlier in it's life the PVS was added to plug the threaded hole in the water pump? I have a plug in mine.
