Gen1dak will become famous soon enough

Couple other things, now that you mention it. Get a pack of caps and plugs. Go through and use the appropriate piece to close off every extraneous port under the hood. Cap the vacuum cannister and every other dinky little vacuum line/port you can find. All you need is the big vacuum lines for PCV and power brakes. If yours has a vacuum advance on the distributor (pretty much gone by mid-80's) make sure it's good. Other than that, the other stuff is garbage. Just all potential leaks. The vapor cannister is part of the purge function (emissions crap). If you notice pressure on the fuel tank on hot days, switch to a vented gas cap. Since you don't have the stock carb, the whole purge function is non-functional anyway.
