Well, the wires are not long enough without slicing up the bundle they're in. When I unplugged them I noticed the clips were gone off both and one of the white tubes fell off of one of the plugs. I hope I didn't create more problems. To dark to mess with it anymore tonight, no garage and no spotlight. I'm going to have to take the sensors out and swap them to try the swap test. I don't suppose anyone has a couple of these plugs I can get my hands on.

Perhaps my problem could have been a loose connection. Since I couldn't swap plugs to test them, I just plugged them back in. Two days now and the boost needle is working just fine, no jumping no pegging to sticking. Sure would like to replace to broken plugs. Anyone know where I can get some?

You might be able to from Ed Morad when he guts another Bville.

In the meantime, just put some small tie-wraps in there to hold 'em tight.

Well, Ed Morad didn't have any except for broken ones so I asked him to keep me in mind if he ever got good ones. I'm going to hit some local yards and see what I can come up with.

Thanks everyone for helping me solve this issue, much appreciated.

The ole broken connector problem.

Look around the yard for that same type of map. The naturally aspriated B'villes won't have that same type of map sensor, however there are plenty of other cars that used it.
