If you go to my picture gallery (carb overhaul) I have a few photos. Mine is an 86-A Cal model. Should help a little. If that helps and you get that far let us know and we can go from there.
Enjoy the ride. They are all good, just some better than others.

If the one I am thinking of it's the vacuum line that goes to the ignition control unit? From the area of #2 cyl?

Where's the box that attaches to the bottom?It's got the fittings that mount in the holes next to the intake port.

I figured out a cheap way to fill the fork oil without pulling the spring caps(inject oil into the drain plug with a ball pump.$4 at walmart) .You can replace the seals ON the bike.The whole job took a few hours.
