    I don't have a 79 1ton with a 454, but I have hooked up many BBC and SBC with and without emissions equipment, and just about anywhere in between.

    Also are you the first and only owner of this truck? Most trucks from that vintage have been changed at some point or another. If you can post pictures of your motor and any emissions equipment you have, I'm sure someone (Dorian, myself, etc.) can help. Or if you can't post pics, let us know what you are running (i.e. stock HEI with vacuum advance or MSD ignition, stock air cleaner with preheat hose or open element, etc). The more info the better we can help you...

    I really feel for you! I hate vacum lines. That's why I am glad in Maine I don't need emissions equip :D
