Post Plumbing, Vacuum, and Electric Choke

I am in the middle of installing a new intake (Edelbrock Performer 289), Carburator ( Holley 4160) and various little items. I'm fairly new to hot rodding and I don't know where anything goes. The previous owner of my car didn't know what they were doing and I'm afraid to copy the way everything was previous to the new parts. I need someone to explain or send me to a site of installation of heater hoses, vacuum hoses, and a simple question of where I hook-up the electronic choke (my car has a generator)

I strongly recommend getting a good manual for your ride, one that includes vacuum diagrams, I have found some of the Hayne`s manuals to be a bit vague on some of the specs and diagrams. I got a reprint of a G.M. service manual for my truck, I think it was $30. Worth every penny. Always always have a good service manual for all your vehicles. By the way I installed an Edelbrock Perf on my 350 about seven months ago, I`m lovin the milage and power!

RINO_64, STOP before its to late, you might not even seal the manifold right. Unless you have already installed one or watched somebody do it ,you might run into those pesky oil leaks! I am a chevy man, but probebly the same sealing techneiqs apply. You really should check out a chiltons manual or simular book on ford motors, sometimes they have them to look at,in a bigger auto parts store, or library for sure. If you bought your holley new it should be in the instructions. Or in a holley carburators book avalible at speed shops. Hopfully somebody here can give you more information than I did! good luck to ya!!! RSSSCHEVY2

the engine is a 302" from a 68'. The car is a real 64 1/2 Mustang coupe that origanally had a 260 in it. I have the haynes book but like you say it is very vague on the topic of vacuum connections and doesn't really explain. I could use a brief explanation of the vacuum connections on a similar installation to my own. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
