Newbie with (potentially) dumb questions
« Reply #15 on: February 13, 2007, 10:18:50 AM »
Here are some pictures. I plan to clean the motor up when I get the body work done, it is somewhat dirty. The blue hose runs from the carp to a rail, then that rail connects the black hose to the control valve. I am also wondering/concerned about the wire that is cut and exposed out of my main harness. As far as I can tell everything works, but it is not connected. It is a black insulated wire, pretty heavy guage.

If that blue hose needs to go on the port to the right that has the black cap on it.  Anything else that is attached to the blue hose should stay on the left port.

The one on the the right is a much smaller diameter... for the hose to connect on the CV it would be about 2 sizes to big for that lead. also that one did not seem to create vacume when I felt it. basically the blue hose goes from where syou see back to a metal tube and that metal tube goes directly to the cv... It is like the hose was too short, so the metal rail is in the middle...

Not sure what to tell you, but, that port is the correct one.  It will produce very little vac, that is true, but, that is what is needed.  It's only ~4lbs of pressure.

I would have to figure out how to make the hose small on one end and large on the other... Is there a special hose? If anyone whas pics of the correct setup... that would help.

On mine, I ran the small hose. It was a fight to get it on the control valve, but, that was fine for me.  You could also use a plastic connector that changes the hose size from one to the other.

1961Decepticon,
                       Get yourself some cloth covered braided vacuum hose, get 3 feet so you have some spare and run it direct to the CV after you've swapped the cap to where the blue hose is.

You are pulling retard (manifold) vacuum out of that port the blue hose fits onto. Yes, the cloth hose is a tight fit.

You see that screw on top of the control valve? Standard setting is two full threads (2 1/2 with the "lead in" thread) exposed. You start adjustment from there after your vacuum feed is fixed.

What is feeding your coil? Generally that heavy black wire feeds the coil but I suspect it has been fried. Test it for voltage when the key is on and if voltage is there tape it up really well!

I got the carb set and hooked up nicely, I seem to be okauy now, though I still sometimes grind going into reverse.

I did have another worry that I have after reading up on hte auto stick. I should have a light in my dash that comes on when I am too hot and need to shift. I ahve never seen that light... Is it supposed to come on during ignition to show it works? I have checked and it is hooked up and the buld is good. Since I ahve never seen it I am not sure if that means that I am driving okay, or if something is wrong. If it should be coming on and I am not seeing it that could be bad and I want to get it fixed.

Sounds like you're progressing along well!  For your reverse, I would still check the adjustment of the stop plate.  You might be slightly off.

For the little light in the speedo, it does not come on when the ignition does.  It will only come on when the ATF temp gets too high.  You can test it via the stall speed test.
