it is a rats nest for sure. i have everything removed x-cept the vac advance line and the one to the 4wd . where im hooking those 2 up for sure i dont know so far. another question tho, there is a line coming out of the fire wall on the d-side that is black hard plastic and it hooked to the rear of the old stock manifold. does any one know what this is for and what i do with it ? i tell ya what, with most of the x-cess vac lines removed and x-cess electrical stuff disco'd and taped up away nice, it looks so much different and cleaner ! itll be easier to work on now tho. i wanted to take the time to thank BOTH of the replies to my question and let the folks of this site know how much i APPRECIATE the info and HELP i have found here. i have went thru all the posts in this yj forum and im fixing several things on my jeep all at once. as of the present moment, i am layed off and unemployeed and cannot afford a dealer to fix my jeep, i have to do as much myself as possible, and get help when ever and where ever i can. so this site is a blessing for a jeep newbie.
once again, many thanks and ill be sure to have some more questions for ya'll and i hope to contribute as well.
