good evening my name is ***** ***** I will assist

where did you get the regulator??? is it for your car???

usually the o ring causes it not to seat well. I use vasoline to lube the o ring and that makes it much easier to install.

as you know, there should be no fuel in the vacuum line

hi Roy I got both of them delivered from local auto parts stores the 1st 1 was an AC delco replacement but it looked different than mine, mine having a needle type thing on the bottom...the 2nd one I got is the same but both are suppose to be correct.
I coudnt fit in down there but the one I took out went right back in, there . the vacuum line sucks like crazy when running, and the fpr is dribbling out of the vacuum attatchment nozzle when engine is off ??..

I would hate to think 2 auto parts stores are wrong...but the new ones are both identical and both different than mine.?

you are not on the same wavelength with me at all the new ones are in the box,

I am trying to be on the same. I read this,, the vacuum line sucks like crazy when running, and the fpr is dribbling out of the vacuum attachment nozzle when engine is off , and thats why I asked if it was with the new ones.

are you saying you have not installed the new ones???
