Where is the main vac line on the 4.0? A pic would be great.

Most use the large diameter rubber vacuum line hose that connects between the intake manifold and power brake booster. That is the line that provides vacuum that powers the power brake system. Why do you believe your engine needs something like SeaFoam? Would I use SeaFoam myself? Nope.

What Jerry said. After recently removing my intake manifold to replace the exhaust header--and seeing the amount of gunk in there--no amount of Seaform would ever make a difference. IMHO. Better to remove it all and dunk in kerosene+degreaser, or just let well enough alone. BTW, my mechanic concurred.

I don't see a need to seafoam my 70,000 mile LJ. But my 63, 64, and 65 corvair prob could use it.
