Best Place for Vacuum Fittings

Just wondering what the best place is to drill the hole to fit the vacuum tree into on the Parker 4V manifold,last time i drilled it into the runner for no 4 cylinder.Seemed to work ok just wondering if anyone has any better ideas.

Also do i run a PCV or not.

My TFC manifold has it cast in runner #4 ready for a fitting, which i run the brake booster hose to, and just run the PVC to the back of the carby itself.

Yeah sounds good but the Barry Grant doesn't have a fitting for the PCV

Hi MATT
Good to know youre still around.

OKAY the theory is : the pcv will dilute the fuel mixture, slightly, this is why the race serious does not have PC port & the street serious does.

My two cents , I dont think you will notice any differance with a well sealed motor like your's, I 'd run the PC valve for street & delete for race. Are you going to use a carb spacer?

If that is the case run the valve to the spacer.

pm me for more info
