A 78 shouldn't have the push button controller like it does. It should have a plate for a servo. Either the replaced it when they put the 85 engine in or the car is not a 78.

the engine has vacuum controls on top of the VC, 85 engine would not. it's got the euro intake manifold, crank vent goes into the turbo snout... looks like a hacked in egr setup from importing too...

Relatively honest, declaring rust & rot, not claiming 40 mpg... . Anyone in AZ?
