Greetings,

on my 62 Polara 500, where does the main rubber hose vacuum source hook up to? The brake booster or the small nipple off of the intake manifold? I'm just trying to be correct as much as possible. It's the hose I cut short to add fresh hose to the line.

THANKS!

Ah, I was wondering what that was for on my 273. I had to to block it off when I bought my 65. It ran like crap with the huge vacuum leak.

If you have power brakes you will have a nipple with a large port for the booster and a small port for the vacuum line for the heater control. Oh yes, one hell of a vacuum leak for sure.
