Hot diggity, now I've got something to do afterwork. Thank you.

Something else to check. I had a similar issue, and found that the base plate gasket was keeping the butterfly's from closing. A slight adjustment on how the carb was bolted to the intake manifold solved that issue.

Do you happen to have the vacuum routing for a '79 231 V6? I'm fighting to pass emissions and I'm not sure if all my hoses are set up right.

Thanks for the diagram, I don`t know if 87 &84 are the same. Iwill try it while I`m waiting for new one I ordered.
If you have cruise control, you could remove the cable from the carb & try it that way. Has to be something simple going on there......

Thanks for checking. I don`t know if 87 would be the same. I found one for a 84 @ the El camino store & ordered it. They do list them for several different years though so they must be different. Hopefully diagram will help solve my problem.

my 87 still has one but not sure it would be compatible with the 84. Anyone on here know? it its the same i'll take one at lunch and post it..
