the vacuum harness plug that plugs into the t-case is KEYED and can only be "correctly" plugged in one way

Your half way there!!!!

Crap can the vac lines, get some manual hubs, lock in the CAD in the front axle and throw in a little jeep solenoid, plug in the wire from the cad to the solenoid that now goes where the big vac plug on top of the T case and you can get rid of 20 feet of problematic vac lines and a vac booster on the driver side frame rail!!!

What do u mean keyed?? Is it just a plug? See all of my hoses actually popped off of the thing in the t case?? So I just need to trase them.

Andhow about the posi lok system they have out will that replace the stock system?? I know about cars but not to much about vacuum lines

Dont even need to get an axle. You could just use your exisiting axle.

I can tell you all about it. Dont by the posi lok. No need to.
There is a FAQ on the CAD system up top. Lots of pictures.

There isnt a "plug" on top of the T case. Its a switch. Basically with the electrical switch from 80-84 it tells the light on the dash to light up when you shift to 4x4. With the CAD vacuum operated units its a vacuum switch on top the T case that tells the axle to engage a slide collor.

the CAD on my kid's truck is nothing but a huge vac leak; as soon as I put it into 4H. so I plan on hitting the yard for a set of manual lock outs and locking the CAD gear engaged so I can throw all that vac crap into File 13. and down the list of wants for it is a '83-older, non CAD Dana 44 with 3.55s to match the rear.

Its all kinda jumbled in there. mostly the pictures are part number references. With some pics explaining what the parts are and how they work together.

Its not really hard. Just make sure to cap off any open ports so you wont have exposed lines or leaks. There are two on the back of the engine that need to be capped off after the suck lines are all pulled out. make sure to pull the right ones. take the time to trace them and make sure they are the cad suck lines.
