Different emission systems and engine combinations require different vacuum hose routings.
All cars use a charcoal filter. Refer to chart and drawing for correct application.
Make sure hoses are matched exactly for length with the one being replaced.
Never use a substitute hose for the two inch hose connecting the charcoal filter to the carburetor nipple as the composition of the two inch hose is a special gasoline resistant material.
The power brake unit mounts on the engine side of the dash panel and is externally connected to the brake system by a pedal link to the brake pedal by a vacuum line to a nipple on the base of the carburetor (through a check valve) and to the master cylinder bolted to the front.
