Re: 1969 F 100 302 engine Idle problems

Your vacumn for the dist. needs to be hooked to the ported line, with the engine running, unpug the vacumn from the dist., if the idle changes, and you can feel the vacumn on the line, it is the wrong port. The port for the dist. will not have vacumn at idle.
