    hello gents,

    Anyone have a pic of the diverter valve from a TBI motor? I need to see which outlet goes to the air cleaner and which goes to the exhaust manifolds.

    Also, I noticed that the valve itself bleeds off vacuum slowly. Should it hold a vacuum? I tested an old one I had and it also bled off....

    well, thats just it, it seems to switch quite a bit from manifold to air cleaner....I just want to make sure it's not backwards.
