Anyone near Johnson city TN ?

If so looking for someone to maybe take a ride in my new to me 77' with a Quadratrac and tell me if it is functioning correctly , I have never driven 1 till I bought this and it just dont seem right but it just may be , I know it is awd and could be fine but if not I dont want to damage anything driving it on the street , Since this is my only daily driver I need to know asap , Thanks if you can help.

Mike, is it driving different now that the vaccume switch is hooked up, vs before.
I think adding the word Q-trac in the title would get more responsc, I looked because I recognised your name.
Is it pulling to either side while accelerating?
Pathfinder drove his for 15 years. He might be able to shed some light.

Bill , It doesnt seem to be any different than when I started , 1 of the vac lines was clogged so I ran another , Now I can get the light to go on and off using the knob but but feels no different , No pulling under acceleration 1 way or another , Since the light works I assume the vac, diaphram is functioning , I went to a grocery store parking lot and did the fig. 8 thing in both dir. and the front end seems to walk a little and try to bind - now thats at almost full lock to the left not as bad to the right , making a left at a light or a right seems fine when I am moving forward while turning , making a left or right from a stop sign - a little tighter it wants to walk the front a bit ?
