  1. I see boot clamp in your picture now after looking at it more closely. I am not saying aftermarket boots are as good as OEM ones, but in my opinion the reason aftermarket get torn prematurely is because of clamp type comes with boots. I replaced mine with followings and it has been five years with new issue. https://www.belmetric.com/universal-time-pirate-clamps-c-15_842/

  12. Very good topic! I like to chime in and seek opinions on this subject. Randy, my apology and simply ignore if you think what I am seeking here is not related to your topic . I recently was thinking how my car performance would’ve been when was driven off sales lot with all smog devices attached from factory? I know 100K miles later most likely isn’t going to be same, but I was more after how the car will run with factory vacuum routing more than anything else. So little search found this post where it shows vacuum routing for Weber 32/36 (link #1). So I decided to follow Weber diagram for 1976 – 49 states since my car still have all the electrical wirings, smog , electromagnetic valves, relays and T2 temp switch in place. After re-routing vacuum lines, searched continued for finding “Factory Adjustments Specs” and came cross another post showing adjustment specs per c.d.iesel. (Link #2), (note publication date). I have both vacuum port on the carb and manifold (below carb) plugged off. I adjusted the timing with my 30+ years old timing light. Dwell is at 60 degree and cars idles, accelerates and drive much better than when I had distributor pod attached to carb ported vacuum line. Tanks in advance for comments, pros, and cons to what I have done and are there anything else should be doing, etc. Farshid Link #1 Weber 32/36 - 1976 49 States My car current set up Link #2 current adjustments per and here more info per http://www.dagsites.com/emissions.htm
