Re: [DML] Engine vacuum problems?

I'm not an expert but it doesn't look like anyone responded so I'll take a
First, I would double (or triple or quadruple if that is the case) the
vacuum tube routing and verify they are all good.
Second... connect it back up and play with the fuel/air mixture. I'm
guessing leaning it out, it might be too rich/not enough air with the WUR
If you disconnect the the vac line, are you plugging it or is it sucking
extra air to run good?
