Re: [DML] Changing out vacuum hoses ---> Thermal Vacuum Switch -- where exactlyis it?

While in the Valley of Death be sure to clean out those deep pockets as 
coolant and other materials can cause deterioration over the years.  I know 
an owner who poked around a little in one of the deep pockets and he said a 
gyser of oil shot up out of it.  The block was removed and filled in and the 
engine runs perfectly but still a scary moment as you can imagine.

Also, I have experience with the SS Fuel line hoses from Special T Auto and 
install them on the cars I service here in NC.  I must say I AM most pleased 
with them.  Not only do they look great but at 1/3 the Diameter of the stock 
hoses accessing areas on the side of the intake and near the distributor are 
much easier not to mention the tune ups.  The bulky stock hoses are a 
nuisance and the SS ones make the tune up a breeze because they easily flex 
over to allow room to remove the spark plugs and wires.

I highly recommend them.  I believe the complete set is somewhere around 
$300 + but WELL worth the money!  They also look mighty attractive and I got 
lots of compliments for the lines at car shows here in town.  I was the only 
car out of about 100 (various makes) that had braided fuel injection lines.  
It was a big hit with the hot rodders.
