    Where to stick the vacuum for the servo.... Edelbrock

    Anyone...help needed

    Got 500 Performer carb on performer manifold....have option to put servo pipe in the manifold or the bottom of the carb...which is better.

    No Pcv, that will be blanked off as will the vacuum for the distributor as there is no advance on the Mallory fitted

    Thanks

    Politicians and diapers have one thing in common. They should both be changed regularly, and for the same reason.

    You want manifold vacuum for a servo, either from the south side of the carb butterflies or from the inlet manifold itself.

    Yep, got both options...the carb and the manifold have threads. The servo is into the manifold at the mo, but Ive just renewed the carb, which has a hole also.....just wondering if there was any advantage. Have 2 holes, one threaded union and one plug, so the choice is mine.

    As was said earlier either works. Mate has just put twin Edelbrocks on his and the clearance between that rear carb take off and the dizzy is very tight. If you're only using a single carb it works fine though.

    Here's a picture of the motor in my old Cougar. The servo pipe can be seen connected to the bottom of the rear carb and worked fine. When I had a single Holley fitted it was into the manifold, there was no differance to way the brakes worked. Hope this helps, Mark
