I recently upgraded my carb, intake manifold, and my exhaust system on my '84 Caballero and now have a problem. The vaccuum line that plugs into the top of the intake manifold between the carb and distributor is no longer attached. While replacing the intake, the fitting broke and I was wondering if anyone knew the terminology of the fitting I need to connect this line to the top of my intake manifold. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the replies.

It's not a hydraulic problem, it's a vacuum problem. Any auto parts store that's any good, can get you the part with a description of what it is and where it goes. If that doesn't work go to the dealer, or better yet have a good time at your local "pick & pull" and get a used one and search for other parts for your Elky while your at it! :beer:
