I have an 84 cutlass supreme and I bought it with a chevy 350 already
installed. It has a holley 4160 (600) carb., edelbrock highrise intake,
and cam, flowmasters, hooker headers, the works. Some of this I added
like the exhaust but most was done. My question is this. On the holley,
I only have one vacume line running into it. It comes from the vacume
advance and it also splits off and goes somewhere else. Where it splits
at there are 3 places other lines can connect. One is blocked off which
a mechanic did, the other 2 im not sure where they run. So, how can I
find out where these lines go. One is connected and the other isnt.
The one that isnt, when i do connect it, the engine starts to idle up
higher than when its disconnected. But it also idles so high that when
in park i had to adjust idle down, and when in gear it was set too low.
Another question. -- When i disconnected the vacuum advance line from
the carb. and put my fingewr over the hose, i feel No vacuum and it
makes no changes in the running of the car. Seems to me thats a
problem. But what really gets me is the fact that the carr runs great.
Im thinking the vacuum advance isnt working but then if it isnt, how
can the car be running as well as it is??????
Sorry for rambling.
