OK - here is my issue - I got a 1985 Chevy S-10, 4-wheel drive, 2.8 L
V-6 engine. The emission control stuff has partially been removed
when I got it. I replaced the valve cover gaskets today - and now the
truck just does not run like it was - I am thinking it is a vacuum
What should I have and not have hooked up without a working emission
EGR valve had nothing hooked up to it
This has a Early evaporation system (the heater under the carb) - do I
the vacuum lines going to the air cleaner (4 of them) - I don't care
if it takes 5 minutes to warm up - can I plus those holes?
what about the vacuum advance - where should the vacuum for that be
Basically - when I done, I would like a simple, good running engine -
without all the "extra" stuff just hanging around that will never be
Since a mechanic will touch it with a 10 foot pole because it is not
"emission controlled" - I am trying to figure this all out for myself
- and I am sure their is someone out their that would be able to help
e with this.
I live in Oregon, so the emission control system is not required in
case you are wondering.
If you may be able to help at all - please write back at
