1966 Pontiac GTO - Transmission vaccum line placement

I just put in a new edelbrock intake manifold and holley carburetor. I was wondering how and where do i screw the transmission vacuum line to?? On the original carb it screws into the base.....but on this new carb there isn't anywhere where it can screw into...Below is a picture of fitting on the line

You can use one of the 2 manifold ports just in front of the holley, the PCV valve can connect to the other. Google "Edelbrock vacuum fitting" to find the parts you need.

So you're saying I can connect the transmission vacuum line to the intake manifold?

Yes, the modulator needs manifold vacuum to operate properly.

I want to make sure we are on the same page. That line goes to the carb or the intake?
