I have suspected i have a big air leak somewhere in my intake system. i had previously pulled the WG and PRESSURIZED it thinking that was the only test it needed. today i tried to pull a vacuum on the entire WG plumbing. (i have a dial a death in the car. thinking a hose might be leaking). well, it would not even pull a vacuum. in the end, i determined the WG must be the vacuum leak.
i just pulled it apart and i noticed the valve has a TON of play in it and that it must be pulling air in past the valve stem.
am i correct with this analysis?

BTW, the spring is gold. i did not think the spring was that big.
