Just wondering what I should use to clean my diaphragms , the solvents might be too harsh and don’t want to ruin them seeing as I didn’t order new ones had no need too they look fine just dirty . ???

Dirty? In what way? Oily, dusty, white deposits, something else?

Regular dishwashing liquid with hot water should work fine.

Hold the diaphragms up to bright light and flex the folds to check for cracks.

Just sticky and I can feel a grim or something, sounds to me like the dishwashing soup and water should work fine.

I was having trouble with this myself. So I decided to make these diagrams for the fuel and vacuum line routing which I hope make it clear for anyone else who has this issue. I had a pretty hard time finding this clearly drawn out and not even the clymer manual that I have has decent picture of it. So here you go. Hope this helps. UPDATED, UPDATED!!

Hate to be the one to point this out, but those are labeled wrong.

I updated them. Thanks for catching that. Can you check my work to see if this is correct? I just don't like how it's laid out in the books. A bit overcomplicated for my taste. That's why I was making this in the first place. This should be right though. For non-california model without the EVAP system.

Top pic looks ok, would maybe change air cleaner to carb vents.

Bottom pic... Carb vents should be vacuum.

Updated the pictures again. Thanks for the assist. I want to have the correct info and also simplified in a way it's easier to follow. Hopefully this will be useful for others. 👍

Yes, it's good to have it here, always had to dig one up on an image search.
