Check the lubricator pump to ensure that it is located properly. The unit should be secured to the fender apron with two hex-head screws and nuts (Part Nos. 354476-S2 and 33795-S7). If the unit has been installed with metal screws, it may cause a noise problem by vibrating against the windshield washer jar, and lubricant container may rub against the heat exchange duct to the air cleaner.
Inspect the installation of the feed line harness and feed lines for accurate location. The individual feed lines must have sufficient slack to allow for the unrestricted travel of moving components of the car. If feed line No. 4 is not properly strapped to the tubular cross-member, the line may contact the exhaust manifold pipe and be burned. Use a 10-inch long rubber strap (Part No. LD-19594-A) and secure the line so the proper clearance exists between it and the exhaust manifold. If No. 4 feed line has been severed, use union (Part No. 354750-S) and repair the line.
Check lines Nos. 2 and 3 under the lower control arms. These lines should be secured to the forward edge of the control arms with two clips (Part No. 358635-S32) on each side.
Operate the push button control to ensure that the control valve shaft moves freely. If the indicator light socket interferes with the control arm shaft, the shaft will be cocked open and cause a vacuum leak through the valve. File a flat spot on the edge of the plastic light socket to relieve this condition.
