Im new but heres a stupid question. I hope it doesnt make a bad impression.

I have a holley double pumper (750) that i am hooking to my engine. I lost the installation instructions to a bat of oil, it is illegible.
My question is: Which hose nipples on the carb hook up to what?? 2) Does the pvc/ pcv valve have to be hooked up somewhere, im not seeing any place on the carb to install this hose??
I tried contacting Holley but all i got was recorded stuff. I went to the webpage and it says nothing about the vacuum hoses.
The carb model # is 4150.
Sorry for the lame initial post

Don`t worry about it, answering questions are what were here for. Look under the rear float bowl, you should see a big vacuum fitting there, that`s where your PCV goes, or if you want to T line it, pcv and power brakes. the ported vacuum source, on the passenger upper side of the metering block right behind the front float bowl, hook your vacuum advance to that. if your vents are vacuum controlled, use the full time vacuum port to connect there.

If your car has power brakes, the large vaccum source in the back will work for that. If you are looking for an additional 3/8 port, I suggest a 1 inch spacer with a vaccum nipple centerally located on the primary side. Id run a variable restrictor in the PCV line also. I've had a lot of trouble with PCV's sucking oil, even with good baffles in the valve covers.

And, to go along with the explanation of Double and Prime just surf the internet looking at other people's engines. Often times there are pictures without the air cleaner in the way. This would give you a visual. Welcome aboard....ask away!!!!

DoubleVision - I got your PM on the PVC issue. Quite a while back, I brought up the PCV thing.. Chuck and company were really a lot of help on the subject.

I looked way back in the archives and found the thread. I wish I'd have tried thes ideas right out of the gate, it would have saved me a lot of trouble.

Here is the thread http://hotrodders.com/t7429-15-1.html

Im familar with holleys 4150 it should have center hung float bowls should flow 750 cfm cubic foot per meter there are aplications to look at brake booster goes to intake & may need to be assisted by canister if not enough vacume bepending on application or horse power traney if auto hooks up to intake also to shift pvc is usually hooked to the 7/16 tube on carburator if have vacume advance there is sometimes a tube out of the right side of the front metering block that should have low vacume at idle & higher vacume at wide open throttle that should be for distributor advance vacume depending on car I must say double pumper 4150 is a xpensive carburator I may be too late feel free to contact me

You ever consider talking to a doctor, a therapist or consulting clergy? Everyone needs help from time to time.

I like this. This person obviously thinks it`s the only one that`s been done wrong in it`s time and I`m afraid there`s a very long line behind many of us in that department so don`t feel like the long ranger. Me replying the thread was the age it is was not to be hateful, it was to point out to you the person you were replying to is more than likely no longer a member of this board which can easily be checked by clicking on the username then last post which will give you the late date he posted and if that person isn`t around anymore then what good is the post? On the flip side, I agree with cobalt, if that`s your view of the world then yeah I`d be talking to somebody.

I think there's still a message that pops up when an old post is being responded to, that says in essence- This is an old post. Unless you have something important to add to it, find a newer thread to respond to.

Don't take this the wrong way, ll, but it's a good idea to read through the General Posting Guidelines.

A little punctuation will go a long way, also.

Punctuation and capitalization is the difference between helping your uncle Jack, off a horse, and helping your uncle jack off a horse.
