Yeah I figured it was the vac operated sd , just wondered the proper name was, when I searched I came up with 2 others that were different, and by the way I did check with the Mity-vac to make sure, I could'nt even get 1" with it.

It sounds though like you have trouble shot it to the valve from the other direction, which appears effective.
Also check the line for oil, you might have to flush them.
Mine dripped oil from the key switch {on to my leg!!}
Yep it's oily under there , I checked with Mity-vac, not even 1", I'll flush, will brake clean or starting fluid hurt these lines ?, if so what is the best to flush with.

WD-40 worked for me. You don't really want brake cleaner in the vac lines as it will certainly not help the vac pods for the climate control flaps.....

That is how it's it supposed to read. There are two shut-off valves in these cars. There is one on the ignition and one on the injection pump. The one on the ignition always has vac to it, and it supplies to the valve on the IP via the bown vac line in your pictrure when you turn the key off. So you should have 0" vac to the valve on the pump when the car is running, and then when you turn the key to the off position the vac to the valve on the IP should spike up which shuts the car off. Then the vac should leak off quickly. If all this is happening and your car isn't shutting off the shut-off valve on the IP is bad.
