First, thanks for all of your help. Everything's coming together.
I found rotten hose connections and now have a solid vacuum (vacuum hand pump and meter) throughout (hoses & modules), with the appropriate sections plugged. However, the S/C bypass valve actuator leaks slowly on the lower hose fitting that is connected to what you named the "exhaust gas solenoid" top fitting (see pic). Vacuum's solid as a rock on the upper fitting that leads to a distribution point on the top of the S/C housing for the brake booster, etc.
Is the actuator bad or going bad because of the leak I described?
