I looked at some 80s AMC underhood photos on Google and it looks pretty straightforward: the valve connects to both hoses. Now I just have to shell out 90 bucks or so for the valve :(

 hi , you can also use the one from a 90s Jeep cherokee, looks different, plastic, but does the same thing, about $15..  may need to step down one or two hoses, no big deal. Four seasons #74777, good luck, gz

So you are using a stepper motor BBD carb without the computer? It can be done, but the stepper motor needles need to be extended all the way out. Remove the stepper motor from the back of the carburetor and fully extend the needles. Replace the stepper motor while being careful to not push the needles into the body of the stepper motor. This is from http://www.4x4wire.com/jeep/tech/electrical/jn-ignition99/, which has some more info on ignition changes as well.
