Schrader valve is located near the distributor - drivers side.

Misfire - at idle only - ‘usual’ suspects = Vacuum leak .... Low compression.

▪️There is a problem with the posted fuel system - “V8 central SFI”▪️

Always wise to post engine size .. It makes a difference - especially for someone that actually knows the differences!

Good luck!
