View Full Version : Vacuum port question



SC Spyder

I am almost ready to put the body back on the chassis but need confirmation on vacuum tube connections. I will not be using any vacuum related SC items (Cruise control, heater flappers, etc.). The only items will be the Power Brake booster and the Vac/Boost gauge.

Please note how I have routed the PCV, I have eliminated the little metal tree. Is that correct?

I figure I will pick brake vac off the larger tube next to the throttle cable attachment bracket and Vac/Boost gauge off the port on the drivers side next to the temperature sensor. Any other ports will be capped.

As always, I appreciate your input.

Last photo is another little teaser of the engine just after assembly.

Thanks again

Sounds good to me. The small port next to the IAT sensor is where the stock boost gauge pulls from.

By the way, cool project! I didn't get what the "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" under your username meant until just now.

One piece of advice: Watch out for those shifty-looking mechanics!
