    Z20 with a Weber 32/36, vac problems

    So, would running a line to the canister be any help at all? The truck has been dying recently and back firing. I do know that the throttle cable has been sticking wide open and I need to replace the fuel pump relay.

    Ok, so where does the advanced port connect then? Does it go to the canister?

    Well, I am located in Washington and this vehicle doesn't have to pass emissions. All I am trying to do here is clean up the hoses and make this look presentable like me when I was trying to take a girl on a date when I was 16.

    Exactly.

    You are correct.

    https://goo.gl/images/eYXqw4 I love the Ecoboost. It is by far one of the best motors put into a truck in my opinion.

    Crazy right? Ok, tomorrow I will start posting some better pics but, if you look at the 3rd pic, that is where the advanced port should be. I can hear it hissing but I plugged it. I still need to adjust some things with it but the vacuum system is what's getting me under the hood. So, new pics tomorrow.

    it is on the bottom left hand side. It is missing. The diagram/manual for the carb said it is optional.

    That's where I am running into problems, there is not brass piece on the weber carb. Can I cut this piece out and put it in with JB weld?

    I see it but, how do I take it off? When I do install it, where does it connect to? Vacuum systems are quite confusing.

    After market mirrors move too easily

    Honestly, it all depends on the quality of mirror you choose. I know that there is some websites that still sell OEM parts like Partsgeek. I did notice on there that they are reasonably priced. I can get 2 brand new front fenders for $45 a piece but, you pay for shipping. Keep scavenging my friend, you'll soon find what you want.

    How do I take off the advance port from the old carb? It looks like all I can do is cut it. Is there another way?

    Ok, so what is the hose going under the coolant reservoir? Tomorrow I am going to go back for round 2 of doing the vac hoses again. Is the z20 even a decent motor? Would it be more worth while to get a Z24? Or, should I just start finding replacement parts here and there and gradually making this motor newish? Or, do you think going older to a 620 would be more simple? I am no mechanic by any means, but i can figure stuff out the more I play with it.

    Let me rephrase part of my last post, forgive me I am nice and sick from all the happy times of this year. The right side has a single canister, with the line going under the coolant reservoir. Is this where I hook into from the vacuum advance fitting? I will pull off the old port and try to make it work. Mike, you sir are one in a million.

    The vacuum advanced port isn’t there. It’s missing so I plugged it. The canister is on the left hand side but like I said, I only have one. As of now, this truck is running pretty good. I’m still gonna go through and replace lines. For the advanced port if it’s missing, is there a way to replace it?
