Need vacuum help - not standard stuff

Hey gang,

I've been reading on several threads, so please don't blast me until you've seen my setup. I have a yj that the po put a 76-78 258 into. My main concern is that the engine stumbles after it gets up to temp. It starts great and idles fine, but stumbles a bit while running down the road.

I'm trying to make sense of my setup against these awesome diagrams (thanks for making these)

And http://home.sprynet.com/~dale02/list.htm

Here are some pictures of my setup. No computer, no stepper, no o2 sensor:

Are these older versions of what became the cto?

Egr has nothing hooked up to it

Snorkle has no vacuum valves

Hanks for any pointers,

Yeah, but those won't help you veru much with a steel manifold that has no water jacket.

These might help more.












Now you may not have all those CTO's. On my 76 I just ran the vacuum advance to the spark port. I skipped the cto to switch from manifold to poerted vacuum.

Do you know how to check your timing?

Thanks a ton John. I haven't setup the timing in this one yet. I have done timing on older GMs, where I put the light on the #1 plug and used the strobe to make sure it was firing when the crank it at TDC. I assume it's a similar process on the 258. Is that right?
