xfnoho I've been to the vacc site and can't find anything about vac. line diagrams?

We are now ready to finish off but don't know where the vac. lines need to go and also how the heater hosing is set up for the V8.

One thing of interest for others planning to do this conversion is the power steering lines can NOT be used when putting in the Clevo 351 with extractors as the lines run within half an inch or less (we spent a few hours bending to get 1.5 inch clearance)
We ended up having a high pressure line made up to suit which allows us to run along the drivers side under the battery then across the front member back to the power steering pump. (A 90 degree bend made for a very easy fit).

This has given us great clearance and allowed us to bend the brake lines from the master cylinder back away from the extractors so that we have 4 inches of clearance.

Also we've found a little problem with the FMX yoke to tailshaft fitting. The problem is that the yoke has external circlips and the tail shaft internal. We're thinking well have to purchase one of each and use the bearing caps from each to make our own up.

Anyway a photo so that others might be able to explain the routing of vac. and location of vac hosing.
The rear one we know carries the brake booster vac. and gearbox vac. but it has one capped and still one left? Does this one attach to the valve for the heater tap?

The vac point at the rear of the manifold, The small one is for vac to inside to work the vents & flaps, and Heater tap switch.
The ones on the t'stat housing are for the heat operated vac switches for the vac advance unit on the dizzy and for the EGR valve operation.
