Hey, I have a 1966 Mustang coupe with a 289 and a Autolite 2100 2-V carb. I bought the car and practically nothing in the engine bay was put together or assembled and have no picture reference where the wires, hoses, ect. are intended to be.

Currently I am attempting to set up the vacuum lines and am having some trouble with determining where each goes. I have a Auotlite 2100 2-V carb and have no idea where the vacuum lines are to be attached on to this carburetor and to where the lines go from there. I have no power steering, PCV to spacer or factory air so it (to the best of my understanding) shouldn't have that complicated of a vacuum setup.

Any help would be very appreciated, if someone could take pictures of their setup or draw a diagram of where the hoses are ment to plug into and go where.

thanks
John

here are some pics. Mines a '66 289 C code with 2100. No power anything but it is a California Emissions car.

if any questions, send a PM & ill tell ya what i know. I just learned about some of this just today. Some cars have a metal line from Vacuum Advance to Carb. some use rubber hose.

This will help you with the choke tubes. (i forgot to mention,one of my choke tubes is missing)

That line could be for the thermactor smog system. I took all of that stuff off. I currently have the pcv, vac advance, and vac line from the transmission modulator. I pulled that tree off and plugged the port on mine.

John, yes those items are for the Calif Emissions. I left it on. No special reason. That one hose at bottom of pic is also for CE. In pic #1, you will see on left the short 90 hose with the bolt in it - also for CE's.

FYI - California Emissions is really called Thermactor Emissions. Abbreviated TE, in some book/catalogs.

Ted covered everything pretty much. Not many vacuum lines on the car.
