if you look at the pic I posted on 10/11/2017 you can see a threaded hole on the top right side of the intake manifold, the one on the bottom right it a vacuum port for my AC system, the brake manifold connects to a port on the bottom of may carb. Both Jason & Russ have advised me to just plug it so I have. But I would like to know if anyone else has one on their intake manifold & what it's for ?
I think that is a pathway for exhaust gasses to warm up the bottom of the carb to aid in cold start. Only the original carbs benefit from this I think.
Let us know how the paint holds up on the exh runners of the intake manifold. 2 weeks is a long time to wait on paint, but if you have a spare to paint while you drive the car, it would be OK.
There is an expression if something is really boring; "Its like watching paint dry"
i installed the Felpro Gaskets (MS8931SH1) about a year ago and it sucks air now!
have to remove the Intake again and replace the gaskets with the ones from Best.
