My white vacuum line has degraded and I need to fix this but Ford tells me that the 3/32" white line has been discontinued. The line fell apart from the recirculate motor attachment to about 8" down the line. I was going to try to cut and splice but can't seem to find the right parts. Anyone have any ideas for them that worked? Could really use the help. Thanks!

Here is how mines connected, I pulled out the old line from the inside a little till I got to the soft part than used that connector to link hte lines. Not sure where I pulled it iff from. I know it was from a f150 for sure. You can also use a vacuum tube to link the 2 ends as well. I went that way I went to make it look like it was stock.

I didn't even need the connectors, mine press fit on tightly. I just used the shrink tubing on the connections to help secure the connections so that it would last another 15-20 years without issue.

yo!
Great stuff!
Here is Ford's way;
Mini-Tube Vacuum Hose Service in a 96; "...Measure the length of the damaged area of the mini-tube vacuum hose. Cut a piece of standard 3mm (1/8-inch) ID vacuum hose approximately 25mm (1 inch) longer than the damaged area of the mini-tube vacuum hose. Cut the mini-tube vacuum hose on each side of the damaged area and remove damaged portion of the mini-tube vacuum hose. Dip the mini-tube hose ends in Tetra Hydro Furan (THF) or Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK). Either of these solvents will act as a sealer for the repair of the mini-tube vacuum hose. Insert the ends of the mini-tube vacuum hose approximately 9mm (3/8 inch) into the ends of the standard 3 mm (1/8-inch) ID replacement vacuum hose. Shake the service joint after assembly to make sure solvent is dispersed and vacuum line is not blocked internally. Test system for a vacuum leak in area serviced..." from 1996 F-150, F-250, F-350, F-Super Duty and Bronco, F-Super Duty Motorhome Chassis Workshop Manual
