Thanks for the info GrantCee!!!

Thanks to the service manual downloaded from "", I spent the weekend going through the vacuum system. Since we don't have emissions standards in Kansas, I removed the "High Altitude" system and found about a dozen lines that weren't routed or attached properly. Had to bypass the "Thermo Valve", because it had two broken nipples. Doesn't the "Thermo Valve" only control the choke or am I wrong?

It seems to run a lot better now. But I still want to get the Weber you recommended, so I can get rid of all the vacuum lines rats nest, just gotta get mama to agree. I'm only getting about 7-9 miles per gallon, so it won't take long to pay off the Weber if it will double the mileage. What do you think I'll get for mileage with the Weber??
