Both types are controlled in the throttle position and provide an accurate determination of the engine load. Manifold vacuum pressure is highest with the throttle plates are closed and the vehicle is idling. At this time there is no ported vacuum pressure. The throttle plates create a ported signal once they open and air flows past the base plate of the carburetor.
Deteriorated or broken vacuum lines can create the same symptoms as a malfunctioning vacuum advance. Mark Gittelman.

Also, the more efficient the pump, the more power it makes. A motor is constantly moving air in and out of itself.
In this situation, if the throttle butterfly is open, not much vacuum is produced since you are freely letting the air flow into the motor. Take that same situation when the throttle plate is closed and the motor will be generating a lot of vacuum as it struggles to suck as hard as it can to pull in air and feed itself passed the closed throttle plate.
In front of the throttle plate there will be no vacuum present due to the fact that it is open to the air box and therefore atmospheric pressure. Also remember that the amount of vacuum a motor will have will be based on how good the piston rings are, and also the cam that the motor is running. Having a good seal from the piston rings most people understand, but when running a very large and aggressive cam, often there will be more overlap in the duration between intake and exhaust valves that will cause a loss of vacuum at idle.
Well, this is because that is where the vacuum is present. Since the intake manifold represents the area behind the throttle plate, the highest vacuum that the motor produces will be found in the intake manifold. Because of this, the intake manifold will often have many vacuum outlet ports found on it. Some custom application intake manifolds or those manifolds equipped with individual throttle bodies, do not have enough room to accumulate sufficient engine vacuum.
The solution is a Vacuum Accumulator , or what are also called Vacuum Boxes. These basically function as remote reservoirs for vacuum to accumulate. There added feature is that they can be mounted anywhere and can therefore be mounted in a space that is free in the engine bay.
While almost everything on an automobile used to be vacuum controlled through the use of a diaphragm and actuator , many of these important jobs are being passed on to be electrically controlled now, but every car manufacturer is different.
Now that is not a complete list as there are many things over the years that vacuum has controlled in the vehicle. The nice thing is that to fix this type of problem is very cheap. The bad news is that they can be very difficult to track down. There are a few tools to help find the leaks in your vacuum system though. What you can usually find locally for vacuum line is terrible. The rubber gets old fast and cracks, as well as not keeping a solid conneciton and slipping off.
We suggest upgrading from a brittle rubber to silicon vacuum lines:s. When it comes to tracking down leaks, having a diagram of your engine bay will be vital to you saving yourself some time. Every service manual should have a section on the vacuum set-up of your car. Some EL84 amps that we would recommend: Dr. Z Maz 18 Jr. You may wonder why we didn't go into great detail about preamp tubes and honestly the reason is pretty simple. Most guitar amps use some variant of a 12AX7 in the preamp section.
Though the preamp section of an amp is tremendously influential on the tone the amp produces, it's difficult to really draw many conclusions from the type of tubes being used. Of course as with anything there are exceptions to the rule. One preamp tube that we've seen popping up a lot lately is the EF Though it's by no means the first time this tube has been used in the preamp section of a guitar amp, there does seem to be a resurgence as of late.
This is not at all surprising considering its performance. Without getting too much into the technical differences between a 12AX7 variant and an EF86, what most players will notice right off the bat is how much gain the latter brings to the circuit. This is not to be mistaken with distortion, what we're talking about is clean gain in a technical sense.
Many have described preamps containing this tube as lively, with a very immediate attack, making it very useful for both the purist and the player with a large pedal board. After hearing some of these designs ourselves, it's not at all surprising that this tube has gained a pretty sizable following.
Some EF86 amps that we would recommend: Dr. Z M12 Amplifier Dr. Brake boosters, which have vacuum assist, use vacuum to actuate a diaphragm that increases pressure when applying the brake pedal. Some windshield wipers and door locks use vacuum-assisted servos to operate valves and linkage.
Older vehicles with distributors use vacuum as a means to advance spark timing in the ignition system. These auxiliary systems use engine rpm or additional switching valves to regulate the proper amount of vacuum needed to operate.
At sea level, atmospheric pressure reads about As atmospheric pressure and temperature increase or decrease during changes in weather, slight changes occur in engine vacuum. Less dense or hotter air produces less vacuum because of loosely packed air molecules. The higher the altitude less dense air , the lower the Hg, or inches of mercury in the vacuum reading. For example, an engine idling at 22 Hg at sea level will show approximately 17 Hg at 5, feet of altitude.
