TK, Eric is right. The original vacuum source for the trans line is a metal pipe pressed into the carb, but I understand you have a non-original carb. No worries, manifold vacuum is manifold vacuum. Ported vacuum is above the throttle plates, manifold below. when the throttle is stabbed, the throttle plates open, and manifold vacuum drops to near zero. The transmission modulator senses this vacuum change, and in conjunction with the governor (which senses engine speed) it "tells" the trans when to shift.
