No, it didn't hold, collapsed too, booster? Master? Going to try a Copper or aluminum tube and see what happens.

check your one way valve on the booster

200psi compressor line, reinforced it with a tube on the inside so it won't collapse. I think the master is leaking, still stalling.

You think the booster is leaking ? Start the car, let it idle. Shut it off. Pull the booster fitting or the line. It should still hold vacuum. It it isnt, it is leaking. You will hear the wooosh of the air getting in if its good.

It's holding vacuum, heard it yesterday when replacing the hose, think is the master, is collapsing every hose I put in, reinforced this one but still have the idle issue.

Plug off the booster hose to the intake so the booster isnt getting Vac and see if your idle issue is still there , that would rule out the booster

With boost going to the booster you can kill the bellows in the booster , rule it out by testing with out the booster is hooked up

Good idea, is beginning to act funny though and there's some fluid around the vacuum fitting, pump the brakes or clutch and increases rpm's, that test will help.

Hi, wanted to see your 6262 installed so checked your thread, VERY nice work!
One suggestion, I would swap out the timing cover (center metal part) with a SVT one and then use the SVT poly pass side motor mount. The bolts are spaced further apart and seem to support everything better. I'll check I'm sure I have a spare I can send you for free. Or swap when the mount eventually needs replacing.
