Can't help you witht he vac lines, I'm still trying to figure that out myself. Why did you strip your 2gn, was something wrong with it?

So what all did you do to the motor you said you rebuilt it? The way it looks you did it in one day?

Nice looking stuff, man. Glad to have you on board.

The vac line on the intake manifold itself is for the PCV, it should be attached to the one on the valve cover near the timing cover with a PCV valve between them somewhere.

The other one I believe is for the Evap system, but I can't say 100%. I'll have a look at my winter car to check.

I think that T was for cruise control.

Sorry to hear about the accident. Hope you're doing better,
Doug

Dude I'm sorry to hear about that. Do the doctors have any hopes to make your hand work again? being a technician will be hard work, with only one hand. I wish you best of luck.

Correction, sorta, The y fitting I believe goes to the speed control and the straight one coming off the manifold I agree does go to PCV. I just realized there were two lines in question.

Working with a hurt finger sucks let alone an entire hand. You may want to consider something like service writing or parts counter for the short term. That will keep you in touch with the car scene but full use of two hands isn't necessary. Dabble with cars on the side, stay late helping other techs and things to see how you can manage and then decide after rehab and some time passes.

Stay true to your path of wanting to work on cars but things have changed now and a sometimes a course correction is needed on your journey.

im fully aware that it may be near impossible working as a technician. the time it would take to perform simple tasks would be unreasonable....
