It seems the egr system has been bypassed, good. There also seems to be unnecessary bundled vac lines. I removed the various multi connectors and installed one fewer orifices. One was a four way, now three way, the other was a three way, now a single.
The ALDA is missing the cap, not a big deal, but on a low mileage engine? Is the switchover valve hooked up?

I thought the EGR valve was still hooked up? It will take me a while to sort out all the vacuum lines I don't really know what is needed or not.
What is the switch over valve , and where might it be?
It's gonna take me a while to figure out what's all under the hood

First picture is the switch over valve behind the brake booster.

second picture shows line going to ALDA from the S/O valve.

Everything under the hood looks stock and unmolested. Virgin territiory

Engine has that nice MB Purr when it was idling.


I saw the car yesterday, much nicer in person than the photos show.
this car is a creame puff.

You did good JIM .

I may have jumped the gun, but your black box on the cam cover that houses the 3/2 valves, isn't there. Can't tell if the egr valve itself is hooked to anything, but can see a couple of vac lines going toward the front of the car, so can't be sure.
The pics are of my '84 CD. The black box is there, but not hooked up. The switchover valve has been bypassed, the ALDA still has the black cap.

I like the pics,
What exactly is the purpose of the switch over ? Do I need it?
And I was thinking of just taking off the EGR and putting a plate over the hole. And plugging the vacuum to it.
This is my EGR pic

That's an odd set up, I see the line now, but where are the vac lines just above the t'stat? Lower right in the pic, I've plugged 'em off.
Anyway, yeah, you can remove the valve and bolt on a block off plate, you'll have to do the other end too. Brian used to sell a kit, I bought one but decided not to install it, PM me if you'd like it.

Nice car. Nice leather seats. I'll keep an eye out for good centerstack console wood trim for you at the boneyard.
