I need to replace the booster vacuum hose of my 84 300TDT... the problem is given my VIN# a different vacuum hose is shown in the micro film as against the original part that came with the car.

Micro film part# 123 430 58 29
(the 2 outlet vacuum fittings that attach to the straw like vacuum lines are positioned far apart, thus the vacuum lines are too short to attach to it)

part# that originally came with the car: 123 430 74 29
(the 2 outlet vacuum fittings are positioned next to each other whereby they perfectly attach to the straw like vacuum lines)

From what it seems, the micro film part# is definitely not the correct one. What may have caused such discrepancy?? Can anyone please shed light on this. Thanks in advance.

The vacuum hose has been updated. You'll have to extend one of the vacuum lines but it work's just fine.art
