008 distrib question

I have a '74 with the 008 vac retard dist. It is increadibly hard to start, and the vac unit is inoperable.

Are these related problems? I haven't worried about the vac unit since the main side effect is that the idle is a little fast due to the advance ignition.

This is from the "for sale board" since i idiodically posted there.

that's a vacuum leak and will affect both starting and idle. Those vacuum capsules should be available from Bosch and they're neither expensive or difficult to replace...so just do it :-)

currently, the vac unit is completely disconnected and corresponding ports are pugged on the intake/carb.

But replacing the vacuum capsule does look like the right idea.

Thanks
