Can anyone tell me where the Modulator valve vacuum line should hook to in the engine compartment? At present I have it running into the vacuum port on the intake manifold. Also, I read an old post here that said that inside the vacuum tubing on the modulator valve there is a small flat head screw that is to adjust when the transmission shift. Have you heard of this? Thank you for your help.
You should be fine hooked to the intake that is /should be full manifold vacuum, and yes it's true there is a adjustment in most of the modulator valves, and a flat head screwdriver is the tool most use to adjust it. JMO
