Hello everyone i have an 86 305 5.0 and Im wanting and need to clean it up a hell of a lot and was wondering what I could be taught about the vacuum system that needs new line but i know some replace lines with just filters? I also will need to know what each piece is cause I am smart as a rock! As well the tach is going crazy where it will bottom out past 6 when accelerating and idles at 4-5 rpm, supposedly at 4-5rpm.
So anything you can teach me from anyone that can help get the ol girl running right and nice again is greatly appreciated. Thank you :biggrin2:

Welcome Grinder,someone here will help you mate,l do not have the info you need.l'm sure JJLT1 or HKDUP87 will find what you need.
I would imagine the vacuum lines would look like spagetti on an 86.

By all means check with Robert (HKDUP87)...he has done a couple of those 5th gen motors and had them pass smog here in Kalifornia....I am hoping your tach is reading at least 400 to 500 RPM...either that or that is is one amazing setup you have workin' there :)

Welcome to the site ! :beer:

Pick up the FACTORY SHOP MANUAL, it is invaluable if you plan to do ANY work on it yourself. I got mine from Ebay and recently picked up the Electrical Troubleshooting guide too.
