    I experienced the exact same failure of a pressure gauge. I could have sworn I posted about it a while ago, but (even with the advanced search**) I honestly I can't find it. So if I didn't talk about...

    I pulled my pump out a while ago for refurb and I didn't have any trouble getting it to prime when I was done. I know there's a statement in some of the manuals that warns against running the car...

    The good news is that I think that's exactly the way it's supposed to work for pressure. My read on the way it works like this...

    I'm with ya! I've lost count of the number of times now that I've studied the heck out of something and taken lots of pics... Only to find out later that I just reinvented the wheel and Blue already...

    Mike beat me to it... I wanted to ask if you're sure it's vacuum and not pressure.

    It would make perfect sense for there to be some pressure in the tank. As a matter of fact, it's all related to...

    There shouldn't be any significant vacuum in the tank. There's a check valve built into the gas cap that's supposed to prevent that. (Funny that there's another thread running at this exact same time...

    Page EF-22 of the 73 manual page has a decent cutaway dwg of the cap. It also describes how to test the check valve:

    1. Wipe clean valve housing and have it in your mouth.

    2. Inhale air. A...

    I don't have documentation back to 71, but I've messed with later year fuel caps and if the OEM cap is functioning properly, I don't think it should be leaking like that.

    Back to at least 72 there...

    The gaskets "packing" #20 on that diagram seal the lids to the distribution blocks, not the blocks to the cam towers.

    I don't know if they originally came with a gasket between the towers and the...

    If they wrapped a non-hardened shell around a hardened cylinder, then drilling it would be a breeze. But if these new ones pan out, of course that would be even easier.

    With the new ones, while...

    Don't want to pre-emptively bust your bubble, but seeing as how the cap is actually the outer race for the rollers, I'm sure it's hardened

    You got any carbide drill bits? :) Haha!

    Yes, I believe the #5 inhibitor is for automatics only, so 1, 2, and 3 only makes sense for manual trans without A/C.

    Thanks for the help with the 78 point of view.

    Seeing as how the yoke is actually the inner race for the rollers, I'm sure it's hardened.

    The issue for me is that I'm planning some electrical changes and I'm wanting to repurpose some of those mounting locations for other things and I don't want to put...

    Thanks for the help. I'm assuming your car is a manual trans? That would make sense that you don't have the seatbelt starter interlock relay.

  23. Relay Bracket Details - What Relays Go Where?

    Maybe he means you plug it in and then play with it for months trying to get the tuning right. :paranoid:
