Re: Installing Vacuum Blocks 84-93 T-1 thru T-4
My suggestion would be to start with what the engine needs to run and once you know that is correct and the car will start and stay running and runs correctly then start running the lines to the emission controls.
1)IMO you should have the vacuum block screwed into the intake manifold rather than using a long piece of hose to connect it to the manifold, just another place to leak.
a)Vacuum Block to Top Port of Baro Solenoid
b)Baro Solenoid Middle Port to the Map Sensor
c)Bottom Port Remains Open
3)Vacuum Block to Fuel Pressure Regulator
That is all you need to have the car start and run.
Be sure all other ports on the vacuum block are plugged, disconnect all the lines from the fitting on the rear of the intake for the Booster, BOV and HVAC and plug the ports on the fitting.
If the car will still not start and run you have other issues that need to be addressed.
