I'm guessing it would be the same as an 84, so could someone scan the diagram of the vacuum advance system from section 10 of the FSM. My FSM is for 1980, and has some weird distributors that have both advance, and retard in the vacuum can.... and it talks about timers and solenoids and junk that I don't know if I have or not.

The best I can do is diagrams from 83

If it's an emergency I could drive over with my 84 so you can have a first hand look.

AAAHHH! Your links don't work!

No - not an emergency. I just think that the disty isn't getting any signal through the normal vacuum lines. The can is working tho, as I can connect it directly to the carb and get it to work fine. But nothing is happening when it's connected to the hard lines.

Looking won't help me - I know it's connected right - something is broken! So I need the diagrams to know what parts to test....

So apparently my problem was the ERG valve. It's causeing a small vacuum leak, and since it's tee'd off the ported vacuum line to the disty, no vacuum is getting to either one! Going to replace that darn valve tommorow.
