Re: [DML] Contemplating a Carb Swap

Darren didn't tell me to use the ported vacuum barbs underneath the throttle plates -- he told me to use a barb by the brass idle screws that turned out to be unported. If you look at some of the pictures of my old Renault block you can see a hose running to my distributor from it. The Volvo boys finally put me straight on the ported barbs. I didn't even know they were down there. To be brutally honest, I don't think Darren knew they were down there either.

Until then I was running without vacuum advance.
