Is there any reason that the thermal vaccuum valve is on our cars? It just seems like another thing to clog up the engine compartment. If you run the vaccuum line from it to the distributor straight from the intake to the distributor deleting the thermal vaccuum valve, would that work? Also, why is there a water line that runs around the front of the motor and over the throttle body? Is that at all necessary, or can we take it off? Sorry for all the questions, I just want to clean up my engine. Any other clean up tips?

thankz

They are there for a reason and if YOU don't what they do I suggest you don't mess with them you won't make the car any lighter so don't go there!!!!!!!!!!
The Vacuum valve is for emissions and to allow full advance on warm up
as is the water

Actually you don't need the water line going through your SU's unless you drive it during the winter (In cold states of course!!) and if you live in a real hot state like Arizona, Nevada, Fla. ,etc they can actually hurt your performance by causing vapor lock or just running to hot ( Mine are gone so I speak from experience)..

As for the vacuum advance I don't know anything about it except to plug it when you do your timing and that's all I know....well except that when I drop in a Malloroy dual point electronic distributor that I have I won't need it.....
