brake vac line on a 302w

recently i have bought a cortina wagon with a windsor in it
its a fresh engine with some with good mods to it ,my problem is this ....it has an edelbrock torquer inlet manifold and 600 holley, but no place for a vacuum line to the brake booster, do i need to drill and tap a hole in it? or is there a plate you can buy to stick under the carb or something
any help appreciated

Re: brake vac line on a 302w

there should be at least one spot on the manifold for a vacuum tree.. How does the dissy vac advance hook up?
Find that tree and replace it with a new tree that accepts a 3/8 hose as well as the 1/4. if definite as you say and there is no tree.. then, remove the intake drill and tap to suit.
i cant see that intake not having at least one vacuum hole though.. most cars cant run without it..

A 600 holley should have a PCV port on the back,just tee into that.

The Edelbrock Torquer intake is a single plane albeit a semi low rise one. There should be at least one vacume tap off of the intake that could have a plug removed and a threaded barb fitting inserted for manifold vacume which is what you need for brakes. If there is not at least one vacume outlet on the manifold, then there might be one on the carb for PVC that could be taped off of but probably better yet would be a carb spacer that almost allways has a outlet just under the carb that taps both plenums on a dual plane.
