hi all, ive tried using these diagrams but they confuse the hell out of me is there a simple way of reading these? I tried starting from the smog pump and work my way back but i only get so far, some of these lines divide into 2 and idk where they go there are two of those things with 2 inserts behind the passenger fender well in front of the firewall solenoids i guess, and from these diagrams some of those lines require a T to divide them idk maybe those diagrams are not for my year which is 87 stock, has anyone seen a video on this?

The vacuum lines from the smog pump back should go to a rubber distribution near fire wall.
Some lines from that point go to the TAB and TAD solenoids that are on the back side of the passenger side strut tower, and from there a line goes to a vacuum reservoir inside the fender well.

See if any of this helps?

This 1st diagram above^ is the rubber distribution block that looks like the 1st attachment I'm posting below.

I did the 1st diagram I posted earlier because people kept asking which color vacuum line to to which vacuum line once it leaves the rubber distribution block.

The 2nd and 3rd attachment are as you can see the rubber distribution block and how the vacuum lines attach to the different smog related components. (the 3rd attachment is just a continuation of the 2nd attachment)

I live about 80 miles south of you so it hasn't started to rain here yet.:D

Without trying to complicate things but to answer this question

Think in reverse.. the lines actually run from the reservoir in the fenderwell to the solenoids and then to the block I guess you could say.

The vacuum lines run from a vacuum reservoir behind the passenger side fender (1st attachment below) from there the vacuum lines runs inside into the engine bay with these.. the TAB and TAD and EVR solenoids ( 2nd attachment).

Lets see if this helps any before we go any further.

so i checked it out and as i thoght i dont have that vacuum block, and theres nothing connected to the solenoids and the bottom of the strut tower and theres only two black lines coming from the fenderwell... i have pretty bad power loss after pulling the codes it seems to be all vacuum related EOER 94 44 33, i have a new smog pump so hopefully this is the problem, i just need to know how to route this stuff
