Copper elbows work they have been on my diesels cooling system since 2009 or 2010.

Which vacuum pump were you going to get?
A quick search shows an electric vacuum pump for 1999-2007 excursion for around $50, is that it?
Then what is your plan for the wire to power it?
I need one too, with no vacuum the heater just blows out on to the floor.

I was going to get a "rat rod brake booster vacuum pump kit" they are about $200 and are made to provide enough vacuum to run a brake booster. That ford vacuum pump looks like its only intended to run HVAC and 4wd vac actuators.
1984 chevy suburban, custom made 6.5L diesel turbocharged with a Garrett T76 and Holset HE351VE, 22:1 compression 13psi of intercooled boost.
1989 firebird mostly stock. Aside from the 6-speed manual trans, corvette gen 5 front brakes, 1LE drive shaft, 4th Gen disc brake fbody rear end.
2011 leaf SL, white, portable 240v CHAdeMO, trailer hitch, new batt as of 2014.
