The symptoms you describe seem pretty normal for a 3.0d with a missing vacuum reservoir. The vacuum reservoir is required to cover sudden or extended boost demand situations. Short-term boost demands (or more accurately, short-term vacuum demands, created by short-term boost demands) are supplied by the main vacuum system. Longer duration and sudden large boost demands require more vacuum that the main system can supply, hence needing the vacuum reservoir...

I only say that because it happened to my friend who's a pilot. A bee not fly got stuck in one of the inlet tubes that the cockpit instruments used.

Yikes! I guess that's one reason why flight systems have dual "everything"!

Andrew, you have reminded me of a light aircraft flight I took in 1977, from Milwaukee to Madison and back. We had a taxiing accident at Blackhawk Airfield (?) when the concrete apron collapsed under the aircraft (a Bellanca Viking) due to frost erosion under the concrete. Scary...!!

We flew back to Milwaukee with the gear down, as one of the systems indicated gear was locked and other said differently..... pilot didn't want to risk retracting them... good call!!!
