Default 1980 vacuum hose diagram and kit

I need a diagram for the entire vacuum line setup on a 1980 vette. Where can I find one? I can find the headlight but thats not what I need. Its time to replace all the lines. Also who sells a full vacuum line kit?

Also, what are the major components that I need the vacuum lines for? Trans, carb, headlights, brakes, cruise control... what else?

If you are doing a restoration You will want a correct kit and not just any kit. Dr Rebuild if I remember corectly in NY makes as good of Kit as anyone. The diffrence is how the Hoses are Striped. If its not a restoration any Kit will do. Most of the major Vendors sell the above kit if you tell them what your doing. Some of the more detailed diagrams have the Hoses wrong for the 80-82 at the headlights. The 80-82's have the Vacume cans opposite. The left can is on the right and the right is on the left.

Not a restoration... my daily driver :-) However, I can hear the leak and now my trans is shifting at 3.5k...The modulator valve is new....but the high pitch sound is louder... hehe. I know I have more leaks so may end up replacing everything. I will find out for sure tomorrow... Thanks for the info

Could be... Check out this link... http://www.corvette-101.com/vacuum.htm

It is the best link I have found to troubleshoot vacuum on the vette.
