Tom,

I took pictures of the brake booster vacuum lines on my car. If you will reply with your email address, I'll forward them to you. My email is MLLAWSON2@SUSCOM.NET. Let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.
Mike L.

Mike,

If you e-mail me, I can post the pictures.

For each message there is a little envelope symbol on the upper right where you can click to send the posting person an e-mail.

Thanks Mike for the photos. At the moment I have no check valve on the hose from the intake manifold, but I have one that I bought at T-birds by Nick. Iím going to mount it now.

The reason I wanted pictures is that there must have been two ways of locating the check valve. One way was the way that is on Mike's car, and the other way has the check valve up at the booster. This way is shown in a 1960 Thunderbird sales catalog that has an engine picture. My car was like the catalog, but it seems Mike's arrangement is most frequently used.
I would also like to say that I have seen Mike's car, and it is a great car! It has all the original details that every Thunderbird restorer needs to look at. Mike also has a awesome Buick that he restored from the 40's. He is a great guy, and we are lucky to have him on this forum!
