I am wondering if I can remove the vacuum pump line (that went to the dodge brake booster) and plug it or does it need to let air in. The motor I am using is from a 94 dodge ram 3500, but my 92 c2500 ex-6.5L TD pickup uses a hydroboost unit instead of vacuum assist brakes. thanks for any suggestions..

No problem just cap the vacuum line. In fact you want to have it blocked off, otherwise you'll have a big vacuum leak. Good luck.

that is what I was thinking, except that is the only input to the vacuum pump. The only other line coming to it is the oil line so I didn't know if the plugged input would cause any problems. I will just plug it and see if any problems come up.. thanks!

Don't you need vacuum for things like your heater / AC controls?

nope, my 92 chevy is all electronic controlled. it didn't have a vacuum pump on the factory 6.5L turbo diesel and nothing else on it uses vacuum. (the 94 and up 6.5 TD's had a vacuum pump and vacuum controlled wastegate, but mine is all mechanical/electronic.
