Ignition System Vacuum Pipe

Author: M. Feig w/Assistance from A. Henderson
In the past, a lot of questions have been asked relative to how this vapour seperator should be mounted.  It is difficult to see from the Carburator side as it bolts to the 2nd from the back manifold bolt, and then it has a clamp at the rear head bolt, and then down and around to the distributor.  Another reason for this article is to point ot that many of the engine components were not painted seperately prior to being assembled.  In fact, this is a prime example of a component that was assembled and then painted at the same time the engine was painted.

Note how engineside was not painted:

and then pipe attaches to vacuum portion of the 25D distributor (hard to see here)
