    LOL!
    Yeah, but note I said, "you" and "could"!

    Smoke might work. But technically, you need to reproduce the same condition as when the suspected problem occurs and sucking is the opposite of...

    A timing light wouldn't tell you unless it was real bad. So, I use a tester similar to this one https://www.enginehones.com/5270.html.
    But, you could connect a clean hose to the distributor and...

    Ah, I didn't catch that he had silicone hoses...had a vision of fumes collecting on them...

    Totally agree that the leak is not the problem.

    Yes, I have that wrong.

    Anyway, two "y"s would be better, but they should be placed down under (not on) the plates. Lets call the butterfly CFM, b1 & b2.
    And n can not go where y is, because...

    Are you thinking you didn't let it cool off enough during the test before (post 8 )? Or, another change?

    Assuming you checked the distributor for a vacuum leak?

    It means that the the thermal vacuum switch is failing to switch vacuum to the WUR/CPR when it is cold.


    This and symptoms 1, 7, 8 means the solenoid and switch should operate correctly when the...

    Pull the hose off of the distributor and feel it for vacuum.
    First, there should be no vacuum on the hose when the engine is cold. If there is, the valve or connection(s) in the VOD has a problem.

    COOL!

    Going with the previous assumption that the "initial screw" being shut means z=0 (I believe that is the case, but not 100% sure), I'd suggest the following:
    Change z=b/c to z=b+c
    Change...

    Robert, to get on the same page- For Z= Idle screw CFM, you're talking the brass bypass screw that is shared by both banks. And when shut no air passes it, or the butterflies when at idle. Correct?...

    Yes. And give it a good chance to raise on its own. If it don't, raise it with the arm and see if that does it. (Anything to get something consistent going on).

    Double check with ED, but I think he meant:
    20 nm first
    60 nm wait 30 min
    One at a time, back to 20 nm
    And turn it 115 (not "%")
    Ready

    (Like the Manual)
