Vaccum lines?

Hi, I am new to this forum, and would like to say that it has been alot of help. I have a 1981 bronco with 300ci six, np208 and 4sp OD. When I bought my bronco alot of the vaccum hoses were disconnected. I need to know where go. Are the red, yellow and green plastic hoses for vaccum? Currently there are no hoses connected to the egr, distributer, or the carb. Any help would be geatly appreciated. [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Re: Vaccum lines?

Im not to familiar with the setup but the first thing I would do is run a vac line to the vacuum advance. For the rest of it I'd just make sure all the vac trees are sealed good and tight. Adjust your timing till it talks to ya and back it off some. Adjust the idle circuit on the carb. Replace the air filter and plug wires with some good Taylor Spiro Pros and be happy with the results. Ahh. Oh yeah. Make sure you get one to the heater controll switch too or you will only be able to get defrost. (a current predicament of mine) [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] NORM

I recently found these:

The first one has almost EVERYTHING you might ever want to know, including most of the info on the CDs I recently bought.

Re: Vaccum lines!

Thanks, I will try your suggestions. It runs fine right now, but I just wanted to get them hooked up. The only other problem is that it seem really underpowered, but maybe thats because its a 6 cylinder.
