I'm having problems with my CA emissions equipment on my newly rebuilt 351M. The motor runs but the vacuum system is messed up, therefore I cannot accurately set the timing or smog it. When I got it the engine was missing pieces from someones brand of backyard know-how and I'm having a hard time finding parts and figuring out how to run everything. One mechanic came over and didn't even know what half the crap in the diagrams was (I have a manual and scanned diagrams from a service book) and at this point I'm deliberating on taking it down to a shop. Only problem is that because it's old and its tough to get a shop here willing to touch anything that old it's gonna cost a small fortune. One shop told me at least $375 in labor not counting parts or smog. Anyone have any Helpful input on my problem?
