Well I got the sprint started and it seems to run really nice besides a few issues.

The brake pedal is very hard
Idle surges from 3000-3500
And the accessory belt is squeeling badly

The brakes worked fine before the swap. The belt squeeling does go away and it seems to make the brakes a little easier to push, but still very hard. The car will accelerate without touching the gas.

Thanks for your help

Tighten the belt. They need to be tighter than many people realize. If its cracked up replace it then tighten it. Sounds like you have left the brake booster vacuum line unhooked. It's a big(3/8" perhaps), rubber line that goes from back of engines, usually to a steel tube on firewall, then makes its way to brake booster.

I have the brake booster connected. I will double check it is not leaking. Is it possible I mixed up the brake booster hose with another and that is causing the surging idle as well?

The brake boost hose is connect on the back of the intake, near the top on the passenger side.

The surging idle is likely a vacuum leak or line hooked up wrong. Another cause of a surging idle is air in the cooling system. That will go away with a couple warm up/cool downs, it should burp out any air and idle down

The surging was definitely air in the cooling system. Fixed that.
3000 rpm idle was because the throttle was sticking to the fuel line. Bent the line back and it's steady at 1000rpm


Brakes are still hard. The vacuum line appears to be good. But I will check again for leaks
