I know virtually nothing about the CCV, hence I have not commented on this thread. However, if a vacuum hose is called for, and you used a fuel line, then that may have caused the problem. As I understand it, the fuel line would have collapsed under vacuum thus blocking the hose. Someone correct me if I am wrong.
