Re: 360 vacum lines

I stongly suggest you look at a vacuum line diagram for your year of motor. A lot of those lines just run smog equipment which you may or may not be able to remove and have it run right, and some of them are totally necessary, such as vacuum advance for a distributor. Don't just start pulling them! [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

Re: 360 vacum lines

I am looking at the vacum diagram, but still not sure what is nessecary to keep the engine running. I need the distrib advance, what about EGR, VSD and PCV valves? What about the check valve? What about spark CTO switch? EGR CTO switch? diverter valve? Purge valve signal? Should I just remove the charcoal canister, then fallow the lines going to it and plug them? Any advice will help, I dont have much expirience or understanding about smog equipment.

Thanks very much
Tony

Re: 360 vacum lines

My EGR woundt sela off, so it was welded shut, but I think you could remove the vac line and it should seal unless its defective.

the vac canister isnt really a must have, but you do need to determine whiuch is the fuel return, its the 3rd leg of the fuel filter on mine) and also some 360s have a bowl vent that went to the vac canister.

any other vac sources on the manifold can be plugged.

Re: 360 vacum lines

So.... Just to be sure I have this straight, I need to keep PCV and vac advance hooked up, disconect the rest, What about the bowl vent, this would be a line running from the carb to the canister? What should I do with this when I remove the vent?

Thanks for all your help,
not sure what I would do with out you all.
