How-To Video: Replacing Vacuum Lines on AMC 360

OK, I'm finally putting the little action-cam my wife gave me to good use.

I'm trying to document the little and big jobs I do on my '87 J-20 as I get it roadworthy, as I always appreciate when someone has created a how-to video of something I have never tried. A lot of these will be pretty basic, but I'll try to cover the more complicated ones as well, when that is possible.

The first playlist here is a three-video series covering the complete overhaul of the engine vacuum systems:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GReFi9Z59cA&list=PLs2Z4xhl1taDhx_2rf8WN9fS 3Ovh1iKRg

The first video in the playlist is a detailed overview of the vacuum systems:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GReFi9Z59cA&t=1s

The second video in the playlist covers the removal of the old hoses:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8Lg-GsbYDk

The third video is a detailed account of rebuilding the spark-advance vacuum harness:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMXUsV2LzHU

I'm editing the videos for an oil-change (remember, I said a lot of these were for absolute beginners!) and the rebuild of the factory 2150 2-bbl carburetor.

I hope some of you find it useful.

I haven't had time to watch the vids yet, but hoping you took the time to go into detail on vacuum hose sizes!

And thus, you are The Man. My 88 engine compartment is a disaster area, so this will come in very handy!

I created a PDF with color-coded lines for the different sizes; I have to alter it a bit in light of actually redoing the hoses, but that should work for your '88, if you want me to send you a copy of it. Are you going to be running the AIR system, or is that gone/deleted?

Honestly don't know at this point about keeping all the systems, as I'm still putting the interior back together, and drive train is last on the list. Definitely would appreciate that PDF copy though!

I know the engine compartment is still very stock, down to the air injection system and EGR, so I'll likely get it running in stock form before I mod or swap anything out (if I can help it) in an attempt to minimize variables.

I do try to keep resale value in mind too, so if anything I'll eventually likely go with a 50-state fuel injection system for ease of maintenance and dependability. This is likely considering I still have to smog test it in Ada County, Idaho, though I'm still unsure if they even check for all those systems, or if they simply do the stationary sniffer test at certain RPM(s).
