why are you showing me two options,I don't believe I have vac hose or separate reg mounted on rail.
Chevy Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 6 years ago
Hi,

I am not showing you two options. The first set of directions is to remove the intake manifold to access the regulator. The second set of directions is to remove the regulator.
