It does indeed hook to the base plate, usually on the left side if there is more than one port. Hope this helps.

The base plate out on the front side of the carb. Hope this helps. Should have a steel tube that runs along the pass side valve cover if it is still there.

Need a diagram for vaccum advance for a GMC truck 1981 350 engine 2bbl carb


The vacuum signal for the advance needs to come from a ported vacuum source on the carburetor, and not from manifold vacuum. Ported vacuum means little or no vacuum at idle, because the throttle plates at idle shut off the ported vacuum hole. Look for a vacuum tube coming from near the base of the carburetor.
I have no resource to find a diagram. You may need to check a repair manual that your local library might have. Or purchase a Haynes or Chilton manual for around $25. Or join a forum for older Chevy/GMC trucks; somebody there could help you, I'm sure. Good luck.

1983 gmc jimmy 350 engine. no sticker in engine compartment. what is timing deg at what rpm ???


12 degrees was common for those engines at 650 rpms, but make sure that the engine is warm and disconnect the vaccum advance, which will probably require plugging the vaccum port at the carb.

1995 CHEVY SILVERADO 350 ENGINE CODE #32 WHAT DOES IT MEAN?


Hello girlspy0: My name is Roger and I will help you. Code 34 is related to the MAP sensor. This is usually a repair that requires electronic knowledge. If you think the map sensor is the problem the part is pricey.I would not replace the part for sake of replacing it. Check connection to make sure no wires are broken or pushed out of the terminal socket.The problem could also lie in the ECM or PCM. Should You need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received. This way I know if it helped. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Can't reconnect the vaccum hoses to my 4 barrel carberator (1984 chevy 350) because I don't know where they go... where can I get a diagram?


I'm not sure if your engine has sensor's in the thermostat housing or not, my trucks didn't have original engines in them but the following should get you running.
The front lower left nipple goes to the distributor. The upper left goes to the vacuum secondary's on your carb. PCV goes to the bottom middle in the front. EGR goes on the front whereever you can plug it in, the same for the air cleaner. The brake booster threads in the bottom at the back. Your kickdown for the trans plugs into the intake at the back of the carb. Block of the rest and you should be on the road. Hope this helps.

2001 BMW Z3 Roadster 3.0 service engine soon light on. Diagnostic tests code P0174 System too lean(Bank 2) Can anyone tell me what needs replacing. Only about a month ago cost me around $400. to replace...


This is a problem with your fuel mixture, it is getting too much oxygen. It could be a problem with a vaccum leak, fuel filter, fuel pump, or fuel injectors.

A good way to test vaccum leaks is to: start the engine, spray carberator cleaner around the vaccum lines. if you suddenly hear a difference in the engine (RMS shoot up) then not only have you figured out if you have a vaccum leak, but you also know where it's at. Carb cleaner is basiclly a potent fuel so you'll hear the engine run stronger if sprayed directly into the vaccum line.

If you dont find that it is a vaccum line, I'd clean the fuel injectors and replace your fuel filter. If this doesn't fix your OBD problem, then it's still good to know that they are nice clean and new, neither are real expensive either.

If you dont like to keep your car full on gas, it is most likely your fuel pump. The pumps have to work harder and harder with the less and less gas you have in the tank. Also, if you have a standard tranny you are more likely for the fuel pump to go out because the revs are higher.

Let's not hope it is the Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF) because they can be costly and a pain to replace.

Connecting vaccum


I don't remember factory specs but most chevy v8's like about 8 to 12 degrees advance (BTC) Depending upon the fuel quality, you may need to pull back on that a bit. Vacuum hose is also optional as to position. I like using a carb port that is above the throttle plate so advance comes in later. If the engine "lays down" on acceleration, move the hose to any port on the baseplate or manifold that has full vacuum at idle. These are not factory settings but are the ones I used as routine when setting up those engines, when emissions equipment and inspections were not at issue. (but even so, most always passed inspection anyhow.)

Vaccume line rounting


Dist should go to rear of carb base but can also go to intake. large fitting at rear goes to brake booster. There should also be another large one for pcv valve.There other ports that supply vacuum to accessories options. Some ports on that carb are above throttle plate and only give vacuum at times when throttle is open. anything that needs full time supply should not be connected there.Block off all unused ports.
