    Question ~1976 500ci Vacuum Diagram~

    hey all,
    k, i just recently got into restoring groovy old cars, and i've got a 76 coupe deville off of which the PO has torn the majority of vacuum lines,, it is astounding the thing even runs, (and it purrrrz), but it overheats like mad, obviously,, soo, what i need is a vacuum line routing diagram for this year and engine (500ci 4BL),,, i know theres already posts on this topic, but i also know the routing changed slightly year to year, and i dont wanna take any chances,,,,,
    so if anyone could pleeaze help me it would be greatly appreciated,,
    thanks in advance!

    Vacuum lines won't make it over heat. Check thermostat or recore the radiator.

    Did your car overheat before you changed the thermostat? Those year caddy thermostats have a piece at the bottom that fit in the block and if you use the wrong one it overheats..so make sure you have the right thermostat and some parts guy sold you the wrong one...

    we havent started it yet to see if it'll overheat again,, we got the tstat at checker and they say its the right one for make model and year,, however, if u have a pic of that lil piece ur talkin about that would be cool,, just so i could be sure,,,

    annnnnd, if u have a vacuum diagram, that would be STUPENDOUS,,,,

    I can email that diagram as it's connected to the carb. I would need your email address to do it, since I'm not able to post it. You could PM me your address.

    You are welcome. That is from my '76 Deville manual, so it should be the correct diagram.

    I have been sending that picture to people for over 10 years.. Now with this new computer I can't find that old email with the picture.. Would be great if one of the people I sent it to could send it to you.. If I can fire up a old laptop and maybe its still on there I'll send it to you... Good luck Dave

    Whacked vac lines will not make a 500 overheat.
