Team Rush

I know I seen it some where, but what vac lines have to be hooked up and not hooked up when doing the team rush upgrade? What is the best thing to plug the vac lines with?

you don't touch vacuum lines during the team rush upgrade, unless you pull your dizzy then pull vacuum advance temporarily

Not sure what you mean, you're supposed to disconnect vacuum advance while timing it, though, but definitely plug it back in after you get it adjusted.

First of all, your engine doesn't have a 'Dizzy'...

It has a 'Distributor'. Why people insist on calling a distributor a 'Dizzy' is beyond me... But if you want help from people on this forum, please don't get into the habit of calling a Distributor a 'Dizzy'... Slang is a form of disrespect and since you are asking for favors, it's not a good idea to show disrespect to those with the answers!
--------------------------

Secondly, you MUST pull the vacuum line off the distributor vacuum advance to time the engine correctly...
Plug that line with a golf 'Tee', I find they work the best for me...
Easy to insert, easy to get out, Common and work great.

When you are done setting the 'Initial' timing with a timing light, be sure to hook the vacuum line back up!
(that's why I use bright colors of golf 'Tees', so it helps me remember to hook things back up when I'm cleaning up!)
------------------------------

Third, you don't always have to set the timing when doing the basic 'TeamRush' upgrade...
If all you are changing is the cap, rotor and plug wires, the new ones should go on directly in place of the old ones, so there is no change in timing required...

Although I usually do a 'Tune Up' while I'm there and check the timing since everything is already out there and exposed, and it only takes a minute to do it...
