The vac advance is still used. The '87 I converted had no actual 'computer,' it has the distributor with magnetic 'points' -- I didn't touch that stuff. You can see the vac advance line in this photo [http://saragossa.net/i/uploaded_imgs/weber34dgec_installed.jpg] connected to the driver-side port of the adapter manifold under the carb. It snakes way around the front and back, then up over the valve cover and down to the distributor diaphragm.
