Vacum leaks 1972 280SE 4.5 sedan
« on: October 19, 2023, 16:31:25 »
I have vacum leaks in the 1972 280SE  4.5. Does anybody have a vacum hose layout for that car?
Thanks
Doug

It depends on where you think it's leaking. Engine, ancillary componets, or door lock system? Unplug those that you can and hook up a vacuum gauge to a source. A smoke tester is also very good if you can find one.
