I guess what I really wonder at this point is if I need any vacuum line running at all from the dizzy? right?

 

unless theres something on the carb that I'm missing and haven't run a line to?

 

Just cap off the small end of the brake inlet/outlet thing?

Vacuum line to dizzy is vacuum advance. You want that. Basically the only vacuum line you need to keep unless you have a brake booster, then you want that line too. Your Weber should have a small port for it. Google "Weber 32/36 ported vacuum" to find the port. The brake booster has a big line from it over to the intake manifold.

Yes you can remove that 3way valve it's called a thermo switching valve and switches vacuum based on water temperature. Its threaded into a water passage so removing it will lose coolant. Plug it with a pipe thread plug.

That's what I thought but you put it much more eloquently. Wasn't sure if there was something on the carb that I forgot about. Thanks

My other question is on the fuel lines.

So from what I can figure the smaller red and black lines are part of the vapor line that went to the carbon canister which I no longer am using. Can I cap it at the end before going to the hard lines or should I remove the soft lines and cap the lines straight from where they come out of the tank (which means removing the check valve fastened to the panel behind the plastic)?
