Intake manifold vacuum lines

Post by gazman » Fri 13 Jan, 2017 1:57 pm

Finally found the time to replace all the rubber intake bits. If it was rubber and in the valley I changed it, a few scary moments with manifold to head bolts that were locked up but a few sharp blows with the hammer some CRC and patience won the day. One slight problem. . . . degreaser removes paint pen. So all my markings of vac line placement disappeared when I cleaned the manifold :banghead: Did'nt help that it was 6 weeks between strip and fit Now I think I've got it right but would like to confirm. Thick black line white stripe - top of manifold. Clear line EZL - throttle body bottom half of manifold. Clear line red/black stripe - 2 port switch top of manifold, other port - throttle body bottom half of manifold. Any and all input thankfully received.

Thanks for the reply Dr Diesel.

It's a 1984 280SE (W126) so that's the M110.987

Thanks in advance for the help
