Hey All,
My ' 85 2.8 is going through its death rattle (head gasket leak,running on 5 cylinders, knocking and rumbling.)Still keeps going through the Pennsylvania snow. Anyway ,I have a good running ' 84 2.8 in the garage waiting to be transplanted. I think I have all the wires and vacuum
lines traced but I want to be sure about the transfer case lines before I begin pulling. It looks like 3 lines out of the T-case, 1 goes to the inside of the right front fender (breather?) a second goes to that thing mounted on the right front fender (actuator?) and it looks like the 3rd goes to several other vacuum lines ( vacuum advance,gas fume canister etc.) which go to the back of the carb. Does this sound right? Anything else I should be aware of? I would also like to hear from anyone who has rebuilt a 2.8. I know these motors are almost universally put down as being junk but the one in my truck has 200,000 miles and has always brought me home ( sometimes slowly). Thanks in advance,
