Temp,stall,dim lights fixed!

Morning to everyone. I installed a new 10 guage ground strap between the distrib and the firewall last night. The temp guage reads correct, fan blows very strong, and lights are nice and bright, and my lights are still on, brb.. I do have a vaccume leak somewhere (crappy idle, stall, cough cough cough cough....). Anyone know how much hose I should buy to replace all the vaccume lines? I was thinking about 15 feet. I'm going to replace those crappy T connectors too. Would squeezing some silicone (the gray stuff) on the hose connectors be a good idea? I am thinking on a no for using silicone on the hose to block junction (eg. using the silicone only on the t-connectors and hose extentions), should I use no silicone? The replacement hose seems like it would be cheaper than a vacume guage . I just called a guy @ central auto parts. He reccomends not using silicone, but if I do, use a non curing type and use a very very small amount. What he does reccomend doing is using some cureable silicone around the end of the hoses only (not using silicone on the female t-connectors, just on the outside of the hose when they have been installed).

I'm LOCKED!

It has been confirmed. Lights on, stereo on, fan blowing strong, reverse lights, brake lights, and high beams on, runs great, temp shows accurate! Consider it fixed.

Re: Temp,stall,dim lights fixed!

Instead of using silicone, use a small tie-rap pull real tight. Works great!
