Vacuum Lines (12/1985 EA-82)
Posted 05 March 2004 - 07:49 PM
I've decided to swap in another EA-82 engine and I want to make sure I know where all the vacuum lines go, as intended by the factory
The vehicle was originally a 1991 EA-82 carby, with 5-speed manual trans and air con.
The engine I'm swapping in was purchased 12/1985 and is an EA-82 carby with air con (not sure what transmission).
I'm having problems with the vacuum lines that connect to the climate control vacuum canister near the strut tower.
choke pulloff diaphragm --> my mistake, this hose goes to the A/C idle up diaphragm
I am trying to work out where these 4 vacuum lines need to connect?
There should be an A/C idle up solenoid here somewhere too.
I couldn't find reference to these 2 valves in my Haynes book either. They are both mounted on a bracket and are wired to a 4-way plug. The vacuum line is quite long so they must mount on the engine somewhere?
I have traced all the vacuum lines around the carby and everything seems to be accounted for...
Thanks in advance,

you can remove all the extra stuf, and simplify the lines
#1 to intake manifold, #2 to cabin air controller

I'm sure someone would have a decent vacuum diagram for an '85 model.

Would anyone with a 1985 EA-82 be able to help out please?

They are both mounted on a single bracket and are supposed to fit somewhere on an '85 engine.

is it NON US model?
did it go by the strut tower or engine?
is there a small long line?
i'll have to check my bucket of parts and the fsm

The white vacuum canister is bolted between the strut tower and the firewall. There is a long, thin vacuum line (uses a 4mm hard plastic pipe) that connects to this pair of valves.
Given the length of the vacuum line they must bolt to the engine somewhere...

yup I just went out and looked at the car and I have those mounted on the drivers strut tower. there was also someone elses cat sleeping in there. good thing I opened the hood to look first. your question may have saved a cats life.
