re-routing vacume lines

does anyone have pics of their enigne compartments after they re-routed the vacume lines? I want to try and clean up that mess of hoses and stuff and was just wondering what everyone elses looks like.

ALSO, does anyone know where I can get the vacume lines in rolls? the parts stores seem to charge an arm and a leg when you buy it by the foot. thanks

Re: re-routing vacume lines

You should be able to find some pre-packaged vac lines at the auto store (Advanced Auto, etc.). But I don't think they are any less expensive, and I couldn't find any large lines that way.

Re: re-routing vacume lines

I don't have a pic handy, but what I did with the new motor a while back was to get rid of anything that wasn't necessary (ie: that bank of weird valves on the back of the valve cover on a 258) and rerouted everything against the firewall and bundled them there.

Re: re-routing vacume lines

so those aren't necessary? I was planning on bundleing the and running them near the elec. bundle that is on the fire wall. I don't think i can make that mess look worse [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]
if you could dig up that pic, that would be cool, if not don't worry about it
thanks

Re: re-routing vacume lines

In Riverside Ca, unless your '85 is licensed as older than
a '74 you still have to contend with smog laws every 2 years.

You can "neaten it up" a little, but if you eliminate or change
those relays and hoses you'll fail the next test.
It has to "look" unmodified, even if everything is still functional.

Don't forget to write a "Thank You" note to King Davis, head
of the Peoples Republic of California when he triples the
DMV fees after the 1st of the year.
