Looking for.......

TM800SRR
Anyone have an A.C. Vacuum Reservoir tank for an 81 F100 they'd like to part with?
Has anyone found another tank that can be used that will fit?
TIA

Any vacuum reservoir will work if the hoses will fit.  But you can see part numbers here (Underhood/Vacuum Systems/Vacuum Reservoirs) and you can probably find them online.

Are you looking for the ball tank?  It was used on many applications from '80-91, so it should be relatively easy to find in JYs.



I don't recommend the coffee can:



The later plastic reservoir is much better:



...and it's available as a dual-chamber reservoir:



But Gary is right - virtually any vacuum reservoir can work.  Even something you make yourself.

Steve I have to ask why don't you like the coffee can tank?
They do tend to rust from the inside out, don't know why?
But it can be fixed and yes I did.

Pull the mounting bracket off, clean up the outside and give it a few coats of fiber glass rosin.
Once it is sealed paint, put the mounting bracket back on and install in the truck.
You still have the factory vacuum can mounted to the fender.
