Vacumm Hoses

My 1987 Wrangler has a lot of vacumm hoses can some of the vacumm houses be eliminated. and use a distributor with a carb instead. I am using it as purely an off road vehicle for plowing any help would be appreciated. if anyone wishes to contact me pls email me at thanks

If you change carbs you can eliminate a lot of the vacuum lines, if you know what you're doing. Too many times I've seen people just make things worse by pulling vacuum lines that they don't understand what they do. I've been playing with cars long enough to be able to figure out what's what, but a lot of guys just see a spaghetti factory of lines and are lost.

i had one vacuum line in my CJ. from the carb to the distributor and all worked fine. i'm not sure how the first year yj's are, but i've heard of nightmares. guess i'd start with what you know works, and take it from there.
