Steve Brotherton is Good! - One last question!

Damn Your good Steve!!
Took me awhile it looked like everything was O.K. The line coming out of the Nipple just fine..then I noticed that there was white line kind of laying there but couldn't see where it went to..then noticed that pointing downwards the opening for the line disconnected like you said...

NOW how do I reconnect it. The line is just laying there and the nipple it goes into is pointing downwards..not enough room for more than half a hand to get into. have tried over and over again but falls thru the fingers. Any suggestions? Thanks Again

Long needlenose pliers.

I have a 12 inch set of needlenose and they allow me to connect/disconnect the vacuum lines under the intake with no problem. Should work on the backend where you can't fit your hand.

If the rubber portion is still a little stiff, you can grab it about 1/2 the way down and push it up on there with your thumb and first finger. I stand on the passenger side and use my left hand to do this.
