D15b3 vacuum line question
 
hi there.
I recently bought a 95 Honda ballade(I'm from South Africa elsewhere
its called a civic)
1.5 16v carb.
I recently replaced the timing belt and noticed a vacuum line that
have been blanked off.
It is part of 3 branches. One comes from the air intake to the air-
filter, the other from the
distributor housing(I assume it to be the vacuum advance) and the
blanked off one. They all come join up and seem to enter the back of
the engine (possible the carb).
My question is that I would like to know what this blanked off line is
for. I see that
there is what looks like it could be a connection on the distributor
cap, but I'm not sure.
I didn't get an owners manual with the car, I was able to download one
online, but its
for International models and does not include the carb model and thus
I cannot
determine what to do with it. The car drives fine, but I would like
things to be working the way they were designed to.
Kind regards
JP

Photos? We haven't had carbs on Hondas since 1990, so your setup may be
different from what we ever had.

maybe the online usa versions dating back to 87 or older will show it.

here, the civic went injected in 88, but i understand that with other
markets, the technology only crept in slowly - for instance, in europe,
they kept carbs for a generation longer than us, then as we went from
throttle body injection to 4-point, they got the throttle body injection.

worth looking.

you can't directly, but you can load them to a photo sharing site, then
post the links. tinypic.com works just fine.

I also noticed that I made a mistake.The vacuum line for the vacuum
advance is seperate,so the blanked off line is joined by the one from
the air intake and then into the whole 'manifold' of connections
joining up.
