That hose may be for the vent for the front differential.

No; I traced it back to the evap cylinder. I actually had to disconnect it from the evap cylinder and pull it out to get to the end so I could swap out the parts on the end.

So from Rock Auto I ordered the following parts. I know I've replaced the fuel pump previously a long time ago (and until it recently started leaking it was working fine). The TPS, IAC, MAP, vapor canister, and the vapor canister solenoid are all currently factory originals from 1996. The cap and rotor have been replaced once-or-twice before with parts with aluminum terminals, and they always looked extremely pitted when replaced. I hope the ones with the brass contacts do better. And we'll see how much (if any) my gas mileage improves once they're all installed (currently getting 11.5 +/- 1 mpg). Currently I'm not getting any codes, but while I'm dealing with the gas tank I might as well go all-out and see if I can improve the mpg by throwing parts at it. And hopefully get a little lost power back once I'm done - but I shouldn't complain about an engine with 220,000 miles on it.

Good thing I love my truck; I bought it new in 1996. About two years ago I spent about $1000 for the timing chain replacement and a couple other things done at the same time. Still cheaper than a new truck - just figure you're going to spend a couple hundred dollars a year to keep something like this going. And for the most part I supply the labor (me).
