Since you removed the PCV valve, make sure  you have a filter on those lines, because they will also have a vacuum on them at certain times and will suck dirt into your engine.

It seems my vacuum motor  does the reverse.  With the car not running. the flap is down covering the hole that leads to the exhaust and when the car is running and at temperature, the flap moves up and closes off the snorkel.  Could it be my car is not achieving operating temp?  I have a big aluminum radiator and the temp gauge needle never gets to half way up in the green zone.

The heat stove diverter flap will operate and pull air in from around the exhaust manifold as long as the TAC temperature sensor calls for warmer air. The whole setup works based on the heat of the exhaust manifold and the radiator type won't affect it. You can test if its working by putting a heat gun or blow dryer on the sensor.
