Alright, so I have question that hopefully someone can answer. My truck is a 1996 F-150 with the 300, L6, 4.9L, standard 2 wheel drive engine. I'm new here and this is my first post, so if there is information about this somewhere else I apologize for the duplication but when I searched I couldn't find anything.
So a little background first. Last summer I took a road trip to Louisiana and downtown New Orleans something blew on my exhaust and it was loud as hellfor the drive home. I took it in to my local garage and he said it was the "Pollution Hose" on the catalytic, but that it's not important so he just plugged it with a bolt and muffler cement and didn't charge me.
Last month, it blew again and so I decided to just fix it right the way it's supposed to be. I started shopping around for converters and picked up a rear one in the with the air hose spout and an air hose kit. Then I found was under it the other day redoing the seal on the oil pan and saw that there are dual converters.
So now my question is, does the front converter have an air hose as well, or is it just the rear? I've looked all over and can't find any information and there is nothing about it in the Haynes book.
Thanks in advance for any and all help!
