Hook up vacuum advance quadrajet

Send a private message to lars. Find More Posts by lars. Thanks Lars and 7T1vette. The nipple identified on the pic at the choke linkage seems to be what Lars references.

I'll double check with my vacuum gauge and then hook my vac advance to that nipple. Everyone else still seems to have theirs hooked up to ported vacuum, which is the stock connection. I guess they didn't read Lars paper on this Thanked 4 Times in 3 Posts.

The latter is actually where GM connected the vacuum advance originally. This is ported; you don't want EGR action at idle. The large spout in the middle is for PCV.

Lastly there is a spout not visible in pic low on the driver's side for the fuel evaporation canister hook-up. The heat shield is a item. Last edited by Paul L; at Send a private message to Paul L.

Hopefully, this will get your initial up into the degree range for an instant performance improvement. Then, swap your vacuum advance hose over to the manifold vacuum nipple on the carb and you're set to go - all you have left to do then is play a little with some different springs to tailor how quick the curve comes in.

This assures that the unit is pegged out against its stop while you're at idle, assuring that the timing, and thus the idle, remains stable. If you have a control unit that only pulls in its partial range of advance at idle, the unit will fluctuate and "hunt" at idle, making your idle erratic and unpredictable.

If this happens, you must either replace the unit with a different spec unit, or use the ported vacuum source.

Emissions hydrocarbons go through the ceiling when you advance the timing with direct manifold vacuum. If you have to pass an emissions test, I suggest you run ported vacuum. Most cars will run cooler at idle and in stop-n-go traffic when you run direct manifold vacuum. But the cautions outlined above must be heeded.
