I need either:

(1) pictures of the vacuum lines and the intake manifold

(2) detailed description of which vacuum lines you will and won't use, and where they come from and go to.

the carb I'm using is too much as some have said, but I'm determined to work it (might need to rejet it) and use it. It's a 25 year old rebuilt and polished motorsport 2100 electric choke. (tests have ranged 450 to 525 CFM)

I'm designing the adapter plate to work with the 2100 and would use both a gasket for the new carb (it's a two barrel ford carb off a 5.0L) and a gasket for the hitachi.

thanks all.

Vacuum advance line, and EGR go to the carb, everything else is capped, or routed to where it was before.

sounds good... where is the vacuum advance line located on the hitachi and goes to on the manifold? I know where it goes on the 2100.

I'm reading up on the 2100, and it's easy reading as it's a simple to understand carburator. It makes the hitachi look like nasa technology. (gone wrong?)


(edit) BTW: with this project either goes one of three things. a supercharger bought new, bought used, or built by me. going to keep stock pistons unless someone tells me it's really not smart and I should put the lower CR turbo pistons in.

well - I just said screw the manifold, and the hard lines, and ran a real vacuum line to the disty - it's only like 6 inches away. I capped where the hard lines were to make sure there's no leaks. I'm gonna rip out the hard lines under my manifold some day - what a mess!

I'll get to the adapter plate sometime later tonight or tomorrow, and then I'm heading right in to doing the conversion and retuning the carb.

Hmmm well with my setup (hey you saw it) and vacuum lines... well thats almost an oxymoron.... my ONLY lines run STRAIGHT from the intake to #1, the disty, #2 the EA82 climate control and #3 the weber. There is nothing inbetween them, just straight vacuum hose.

Edit... I read more... I removed ALL the hard lines (dont need em for only 3 vacuum functions) and the EGR system is all blocked off at the heads AND intake with steel plates. No bad consequences of it YET (8 months, so far so good....)

I've got two choices... take the EGR from my subaru off and use the EGR base from the 302 as an overall adapter for the carb AND for EGR purposes, keep the subaru EGR, or just plug it up.

But first off, I need to know what it *does*.
