Also does anyone know what all the vacumm lines coming out of the carb controll. I have almost all of them plugged except the one going to the electric choke.
I'm assuming this is on a 258 - I'm not real familiar with this engine but it would seem to me that a vacuum line should be going from the carb (ported) to the distributor for your timing advance - at least that's how my 304 is set up.
