Not sure where to connect my vacuum from my booster. Can I just T it off at the rear of the carb? Not sure if you can see my current set up but they both currently go to pcv valves.



Ill get a pic in a bit. Not letting me attatch.

The PCV on a '67 gets its vacuum from two fittings at the front of the manifold, by the carb, that go into a special nylon Tee. The brake booster connects to the carb where your current PCV line is.
Thanks, I'll search for that tee. Can I hook both pcv valves to that tee? By the way. I was going to order a aftermarket gauge set with a tach and oil pressure gauge. where would I connect the tach wire? Would that be the + on my points distributor? And I am guessing I need different oil sending unit than one for the idiot lights?

Why 2 PCV valves?

Get a manual oil pressure gauge and keep the Idiot light. You can either get a "T" and use one end for the factory electric sender and the other for the mechanical gauge. Other option, and what I do, is to use the small oil hole next to the distributor. It will have a plug in it. Remove the plug and tap the mechanical gauge/line into that oil pressure hole and you will not have to mess with a "T" fitting and keep the Idiot light as is.

Tach will have directions.

He's confused. And needs to look at my picture again. My car is running two PCV valve HOSES....connected to the Tee. And a single PCV valve, plugged into the rear of the Valley Pan. Two hoses are because it is a dual plane intake design and it optimizes vacuum to the PCV under ALL engine running conditions. Very sophisticated for the time.

RMTZ67, I would use the hose going to the valve cover PCV for the brake booster and replace that PCV with a vented oil filler cap or plug. Also, the correct PCV connection is illustrated in geeteeohguy's picture.
