First things first if you just pointed the rotor at number 1 your timing is likely to slow causing your problems. Advance it a little it will run. I seem to remember on these older small blocks the line you are talking about went straight to intake vac. There is an oil seperator under the intake (big ol can looking thing) but I could be wrong just plug the port till ya get her running then hook it back up to be sure.

Its running! After all that it was too much fuel pressure from my stock pump. I had called Edelbrock's help line and the guy said right away that it was likely too much pressure. Apparently those Edlebrocks have 'sensitive' valves and even stock pump prob is putting out too much psi for it. So I bought a $25 Mr. Gasket inline pressure regulator (nice shiny chrome ) and it did the trick! Fired right up and wanted to idle.

Thanks for all of your help!
