    A '79 two door S model? Thats an uncommon one. Looks like a very base model. No OD trans, no power stuff. 302 or 255 ?

    should have changed the valve covers rather than hack at the wiper box. Valve covers are easier to source. The factory 351 cars went together and I've seen non-factory ones assembled too.

    what I mean is to connect your vacuum pump to the green line at the EGR regulator end and see if it will hold vacuum. I suspect you'll find it does not, and thats why the code 33 comes up. If the...

    you typically won't get any vacuum to the EGR unless you go for a drive. Try unhooking the green line at the EGR regulator and applying vacuum. If it doesn't hold, you've got leaks. The red line...

    Not a fan of leather, specifically because I seem to get it after it hasn't been maintained. Once it starts to shred there isn't any coming back.

    Just need to confirm the height. If its not taller than the Lightning piece, you're good to go. 351's are taller so the intake has to be shorter for clearance under a stock hood.

    No vacuum on the trans but the engine controls rely on vacuum. If the engine runs poorly, the trans does too.
