"Sigh"...that 4 nipple switch is the Thermostatic Valve that im tryin to
locate Carol, mine has been removed with the vacuum goin from the dist
to the front carb..but there is also a connection on my rear carb for a
vacuum line..originally and according to the diagrams teh vacuum line to
both carbs came from this thermostatic valve, and the line from the
distributor went to the valve. Although im not very familiar with how
the vacuum affects engine performance i question what effect it has on
my engine when only one carb has teh vacuum line going to it when both
should have it, and regardless Id still like to get it back to the way
its supposed to be.
Wish me luck in my search.
