vac and breather hoses ??
« on: 21:09, Mon 27 June 2011 »
Appreciate all the help so far, I have no reference as to where any breather pipes go as im building this engine bay from not a lot.
I need to run one vac pipe to each of the following:
boost guage
Pressure reg
where is the best place to take it from and should i just block off the 3 pipes on the carb lobster top.
Also where does the pipe on the main standard boost pipe nearest the lobster go to ?

the 2 on the right of the lobster pot usually T into the dump valve vac and the actuator,the main big outlet on the boost hose can be blanked as it normally goes to the solenoid for the anti perc fan,as for the boost gauge there is an outlet at rear base of the carb you'd be best of using,only using my car as a reference though,others may be piped differently.

looking at the pic the 1 on the lobster at the top.  goes to fuel reg then t to the carb directly underneath . bottom 2 block off then see the one under that on the carb base that goes to the actuator. then theres 1 on the in let manifold at the back underneath the carb base that goes to the aei unit and boost gauge if u wanna read manifold pressure. if not jus connect the boost gauge to the 2 i said block off and thatl read u carb top pressure should be about 2 psi differance between the two. hope that helps

plus at the back ov your inlet manifold there should b to pipes 1 going to ur brake servo the other 1 block off.
and if u got 1 coming off your turbo exsaugst elbow block that off two.

breathers. top ov degassing chamber should go to ur air filter to stop any fumes bottom one to crank breather and middle one to rocker cover thas how i got my ones and havent had no probs
