Can you use a little more light?
That video is useless.

Make one in full daylight, and follow your hoses from one end to the other slow enough that we can follow you.

Stating that a hose goes "somewhere" doesn't help either... get under the car and see where it goes.

I probably can't help, other than to tell you what you need to do to ask for help properly.

Good luck

at 25 seconds there are a B-H (Blue-Hash) and a O-H connected to what looks like a "T". where does the B-H go down to??

altitude compensator valve on firewall 29 seconds into video. port with line already on it goes to intake, center port goes to choke, other port goes to T-fitting between check valve and canister purge regulator.

at 1:02 top right corner what is the the round black object that the W-H hose goes into??

here are additional diagrams that may help

thanks :) ; yeah, one of my specialties when i was turning wrenches. though i still consult.

if you want a fun car to do vacuum lines on, get an early/mid 80s civic with a 3-bbl carb. there are more than 30 separate vac circuits and over 100 separate hoses.


mxpxpunkrock1987: you should only have fuel in the smaller of the two barrels (the one with the choke plate) at idle.
