I am in the process of diagnosing some assorted fuel related
difficulties on my 78 Lincoln. I notice a few things that are
definitely wrong and I am wondering if they are affecting the car's
performance. First, there is an outlet on the front of the carb body
below and to the right of the fuel filter, that is not connected to
anything and looks to have fuel drippings beneath it. Where does this
go? Also, there is a vacuum line on the bottom center of the front of
the carb above the spacer that has been plugged off by some numbskull
before me. Again, should this be connected or does it matter.
Finally, I notice a wire coming out of the solenoid-looking thing on
the throttle linkage that has broken. Is this important?
I apologize if these are stupid questions, but my EVTM manual is not
as helpful as I wish it would be.
Thanks in advance,
