These pics are a big help to me as well. I have an 83 with a Quadrajet. Almost no vacuum lines are currently hooked up. Only the largest line is currently hooked up to the cannister. Also, my carb has an electric choke- at least there is a wire and a connector hooked up there. I have real problems with fast idle kickdown, so mabe it's not working.
I don't have any of the little check valves or t connectors that I see in most of these pictures, and I also don't have that thermal vacuum switch. Can those check valves be purchased somewhere, or can I do without them?
Next, in the very first picture posted, there is a line coming out of the top back of the carb- looks like rubber to start, and then steel. Where does that go?
Lastly, in the same picture, there is a dashpot on the carb right next to the vacuum advance on the distributor. Mine has a port sticking straight out the back with no hose on it. Where dose that go?
I know this is long, but I appreciate the help. Edited by: 83silverado at: 2/12/06 10:45 pm
