    The shop manual says they are only on AC equipped scouts. My Scout had AC, but I ditched it in favor of OBA and a ragtop :D
    Question: Do I need this valve, or can I just put a plug where it goes and reroute the vacuum tube so it runs from the carb to the vacuum advance on the distributor. The valve was capped prior to me pulling it off to clean up the intake manifold (a piece of vauum tube running out of the valve then right back to it) Did I just answer my own question? :confused:

    You can just cap it - it's used when the temp increases to a predetermined point to advance the timing at idle & thereby increasing RPM's & cooling via increased fan speed. :)

    Thanks Bill. That's good new because the parts store would have to special order one!
