the 2 big lines (about 3/4 inch thick) that go into the firewall are your heater core lines, dont remove those!!! they are full of coolant and your car will overheat/leak without them there.... besides, you might want the heater to keep working too ;) the brake booster line is the 1/2inch thick vacuum line that goes to the big round can behind the brake master cyl. it should connect to it's own larger manifold connection poking off the top of the intake near the alternator.... can you attach photos to an email and send them to [email]awestphalphoto@gmail.com[/email] ?

Hi Dave! How are you ?? I just took the knuckle out again from the Toyota whose hub and race you saw/worked on when I visited for your OBW wheel bearing job. Would you allow/invite/help me to press out the old bearing and press in the new with your fine HF press? I could pass by with very little detour when I return form vacation in New Hampshire on July 8 via Albany to NE PA. No offence will be taken if you find this a bad or inconvenient idea and say so!! best regards, JOhn

I am troubleshooting 92 wagon bought broke down. Compression good,all four spark visible, fuel pump good, using ether I should get it to fire off, time belt marks in line at tdc. should I just start replacing electronic componants until it runs?

(optional) you might want to keep the defrost flapper hose- this one goes to the firewall and connects directly to the intake manifold on the right side of the car... you can remove this hose if you like, but then you will not be able to change to defrost with the heater controls inside... everything else can be removed and plugged for full-emissions removal. to do this, remove all except the ones I described above, and plug the holes on the intake manifold or carb with rubber plugs. The EGR can be blocked with bolts or make a metal gasket out of a pop can and squish it in between the EGR piece and the intake. oh, and you will NEED to keep the main PCV hoses connected!! without them you will have major engine problems- but to simplfy them, one side of the engine's valve cover goes to the PCV valve on the intake, and the other side goes to the air intake box (on top of the carb) thats it! Hope this helps! ~Austin
