1990 Ford, 5.8L 351 Engine component diagram

Does anyone know what all those hoses and other components do? Every time I look under the hood of my F350 I cant imagine what half of these things do. Is there a place to get a diagram with an explanation to these hoses.
On another note, has anyone ever seen a trailer brake set up in the cab with a steel line running from it to the brake cylinder. If you have could you tell me what it does. Thanks

I think you can go to advance auto and they can give you a diaghram of all you vacuum hoses, they have Alldata at all the stores to help you.

and on the trailer brake control, the steel line if for actvaction of the trailer brakes, I think they are against the law in most states (unit from the 70's)
some state still allow them if your trailer is less than a certain weight like 1000 lbs.

Where did you hear this information, first I have heard of it. I have two trucks (77 & 83) set up with the steel lines for activation of the trailer brakes.
I heard that you could not use that type with ABS I never heard about it being against the law in older trucks without ABS.
