Vacuum manifold

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

Have just reinstalled the engine, and hooked up all connections.

However, in doubt of one of them.

The vacuum manifold is connect to each inlet manifold, a hose to the brake booster but have a hose with a restrictor left.

Is this connection to be connected to the vacuum cannister on top of the right hand fuel tank?

 

Thanks

Lars

Hi Lars,

On my n/a, pot 1 take-off connects to the brake servo, and pot 4 does indeed connect to the vacuum reservoir. Operates the heater controls iirc.

NB. On my RHD car the vac res is over the LH tank...

Hi Dave

 

Thanks for your reply.

Funny though, that my is a 1982 RHD as well, but the vac res is located at the RHS!

My RH 82 turbo also has the reservoir over the RH tank...maybe it's a turbo thing?
