The Nutter stopped it from working. It is controlled by an electric vacuum solenoid which is controlled by the computer (which the Nutter unhooked).

You can run a toggle switch to it and use to for manual high idle (handy on mine when it is really really cold). See http://home.sprynet.com/~dale02/control.htm

Here is another idea for a manual high idle, in case you don't have the stock carb.

Where did you buy the Vacuum parts. Are they off a certain model Car or are they just a generic model? If it is from a particular car, what model and make? I found out yesturday that my sol-Vac is bad!!

Do you have a MC 2000 Carb or Weber? It doesn't look like a Carter in this pic!
