That will be the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) spacer. They ususlly fill with carbon and cause the system to be inoperative. Your cleaning the passage most likely opened it up enough to cause a vacuum leak, either via a stuck open EGR valve or possible corrosion of the spacer itself.

I am looking for information concerning factory performance/aftermarket speed parts (1958/1960) used on the MEL (Mercury-Edsel-Lincoln) (Also Thunderbird 59/60) Engine Series (383-410-430-462) produced from 1958 thru 1968.

Also older FORD Special Service Tools
