I posted basically this same question probably about a year ago, and never got any responses that actually had pictures. What I’m looking for is anyone who has a 1983-1984 Cutlass or Regal with the Buick 3.8L (231), who is 100% sure that they have all of their vacuum lines routed just as they were from the factory. Yes I know there are original emissions “diagrams“ and all that, but they aren’t to scale nd whenever I try following them I always end up with 2-3 that don’t seem to go anywhere or be original. I know someone out there has to have an original, unmolested example that would be much easier for others to look at when routing their own. My car (like I said) is a 1983 Cutlass Supreme Brougham, 3.8L with A/C, air pump, 2 BBL (E2ME) 350TH transmission (it does have a vacuum modulator on the right side of the trans), any other questions you may have just ask. And please, not trying to be a tool, but I’m not looking for diagnostic suggestions or anything outside of what I’ve asked for….the last time I posted this I got a few responses but not a single person had any pictures of vacuum setups

If nobody else does, I have a 44k mile 1983 that's untouched since new. But, it's in a warehouse up north right now with a couple containers of parts about 1100 miles away or so.

So, if nobody else can guide you someday I can, someday. But, is a non cruise control car and the cruise back then was operated by a small solenoid on the driver wheelwell that adds a bunch to the lines and routing. So that might be part of your problem?
