How do you hook up a vacuum to a skimmer for an above-ground pool? First off, you’ll need a vacuum hose. I usually put the small end over the jet and fill the hose with water. After the hose is full put the large end in the skimmer. Place your vacuum head in the pool, attach the hose to it, now you’re ready to vacuum. How do you hook up the vacuum hoses on a dodge ram conversion van? Open the hood and look on the underside of it.
Its simple, easy to tune, and plenty powerful to light off any naturally aspirated engine up to RPM if properly equipped. Let’s start with the coil. Its located on top of the distributor between the plug wire towers under a plastic cover. It’s the “engine” that makes the sparks. Stock its capable of about 35, volts and so-so total spark energy. Its fine for a naturally aspirated street motor that rarely sees the high side of RPM.
Sep 04, · Hello, I’ve noticed people have been hooking up the vacuum advance to the port on the baseplate and not on the metering block. One guy said his engine runs cooler and gets better fuel economy. I run a Mopar with a Holley These other cars were Chevys. Not sure what to do.
Gift Shop Technical White Papers Allright,,, I don’t mean to be confusing or vague but the little picture machine in my head seems to outrun my mouth and fingers, plus I’m lazy so I suppose Dave gets his wish These are the screws on the sides of the blocks on Holleys and the two screws on the front of the rest. These are the screws on the side by the throttle arm. There are three common methods of doing this- with vacuum guage s , with a tach, or by ear.
Of the three, the most accurate is the vacuum guage method, best to have one for each carb, but it’s not absolutely necessary. Pick one of the 3 below: A Vac guage method- find your full time vacuum fitting on one or both carbs- this is the one lowest on the carb below the throttle plate. You can confirm your selection by starting the car- if you have vacuum at idle you found it- if not keep hunting.
Once you find it, hook your vacuum guage to it- if you have two, put one on each carb- if you only have one it makes little difference which one you put it on. Two is slightly more accurate, but if you take your time one will do as good a job. Remember you are looking for the highest SMOOTH speed here- if you get the screws a little too far out you will get a “hunting” needle waves back and forth slowly instead of being steady- this is all relative -if you have a long duration cam , the needle will be unsteady anyway, but more so if you go too far , too far in will produce a rough idle and a rapidly flickering reading.
B Hook up your tach and follow step 3AA – you are looking for the highest smooth steady idle speed on the tach this time.

Why is my engine running rich and my mixture screws do not have effect? Answer The first thing you need to check is your float level. No fuel should run from the sight hole unless you shake the vehicle. Next check the engine vacuum at idle. Anything below 12″ divide in half.
Under high or WOT acceleration it is true that vacuum advance is zero, but at part throttle acceleration and cruising you are getting static advance PLUS centrifugal advance PLUS an element of vacuum advance to give total advance, the latter depending on just how far the throttle is opened and the specifications of the can.
You may want to review why advance is needed by reviewing this page. The Holley Load O Matic distributor was standard equipment on to Y Blocks, to flatheads, and many Ford 6s offered into the 60s. Given that, from the outside, they appear like a conventional distributor and from the inside, their principles are a little obscure, here is an explanation of how the Load O Matic works. To sense speed, or rpm, conventional distributors, such as the and up Y Block distributors, use centrifugal weights that are controlled by spring counterbalances.
The faster the engine runs, the further the weights fly out and the more advance that is provided. To sense the load of the engine, the manifold vacuum signal is used. When an engine has a light load, the vacuum is high. At the highest load, the vacuum will approach almost zero, especially if the carburetor is large enough for the engine. The vacuum canister on the distributor senses the manifold vacuum, which is directly related to engine load, and controls the advance accordingly: Both the mechanical and the vacuum advance work together to provide the right advance for any combination of engine load and speed.
On the Holley Load O Matic unit, the difference is the way the distributor senses the engine speed. Engine load is still measured by manifold vacuum. But the engine speed is measured by the amount of air that is passing thru the carburetor venturi.
Holley Carburetor Tuning & adjustment
Constant vacuum on ported port. I’m trying to hook up my vacuum advance on my Holley. I have adjusted the idle screw to where it will not back off any more and I still have full vacuum from the ported port.
Nov 01, · The throttle response off idle and on the trail would be better with both mechanical & vacuum advance operating. Holley made weber carbs for sale in the US in the 70’s/80’s. They were sold as performance/desmog kits to get rid of terrible carter/rochester carbs .
It can also be used for the EGR valve. Chevelleguy ] 88sunroof , At least, that’s how it is on my ‘ Timed-spark vacuum increases with engine RPM which is what your distributor needs in order not to cause a stumble. Get that Holley off of there and use it for a wheel chock before it starts a fire; you can’t beat the original Ford carb on those engines.
Well OK, you can, but it’s the only other thing that fits the stock manifold! Nah, I’ll leave it for a while, I finally have it running right It does go through some temp switches first. When warm, only the ported signal goes to the distributor. You could get away with running one CTO, with ported and manifold, and sending the output to the dist. You see, the Holley-Holley tends to be very tempermental, whereas thte Ford-Holley is more versatile forgiving in its tuning characteristics.
where is the best place to hook up the vacuum advance
Help with Vacuum lines Original Message Date: July 13, at Help with Vacuum lines Comment: I have installed my new small block into my ’71 chevelle. I need help with the vacuum lines. The car has power disc brakes, turbo ,Holley carb, performer RPM intake.
Nov 20, · help with holley 2 bbl vacuum hoses. Discussion in ‘Fuel and Air Systems’ started by trudysduster, Sep 8, Sep 8, if you want to hook this up and use it, it’s not all that difficult. Distributor vacuum advance (looks like it’s already hooked up correctly). Sep 8.
Also no where in any offiicial Holley literature will you find information about running wires down into circuts. However we will recommend drilling throttle blades on high lift big duration cams where very little manifold vacuum is created. So first I would return the carb to its ouf of the box state. That means resetting all those adjustments that Lars said to do.
Now you said the carb has been setting. A carburetor that sets too long can cause the gaskets to dry out and shrink. Plus todays fuels have all sorts of additives that can cause gaskets to not last as long as they did in the old days. While everything on the outside may appear ok, interally you can have vacuum fuel leaks between the circuits on the metering blocks. This can cause bad idle, rich conditions, poor acceleration, all sorts of things.

May 30th, 05 When do you know it’s time to drill holes in the sec butterflies of a holley?. My dp will idle in park with the sec butterflies cracked and the primary backed right off front not open at all. On the other hand if I close the back a little, but not shut , and use the front to idle it up idles nice in park as soon as I put it in gear it quits.
Nov 30, · Yes, to start with I would hook up vacuum advance to full time vacuum and see how it idles and runs. You may have to go to ported vacuum (above the throttle blade) if the idle won’t set steady or it doesn’t run like you think it should.
Mon Jun 20, 5: While I have this thread going Location of 1 spark plug wire on the distributor cap differs between distributor models used throughout the years. Other components can also affect where the rotor will point when at TDC for 1 cylinder. When 1 cylinder will be at the top of it stroke is controlled by the crankshaft and can be identified using the timing marks on the crank pulley being near the case split.
The timing marks at this position indicate BOTH 3 and 1 cylinders are at the top of their stroke.
