Re: Large hole in vacuum fitting on manifold
I only let the patch dry for ~ 4-5 hrs. 'cuz I was impatient, but the fix seems to have worked and the car idles smooth now. I'm really puzzled why the hole appeared just 1-2 days after using the car w/o any symptoms. I've begun to think Alvin and friends may have been snacking on the rubber. Uh, don't just laugh this off, either. My Z had a hole chewed in the air filter and a nest bilt by a chipmunk in frt. of the TB. I only found it when I was taking the air cleaner stuff off to put in a new rad. Coulda been serious if I hadn't found it in time. I had to put metal lath in frt. of the air induction boot! The chipmunks (...minks?) regularly nest on the manifold and any horiz. surfaces under the hood.
