I have a 1958 tbird, hartop, 352 engine. I have a couple of questions. I need help with the vacuum lines for the window washing components. Also I as wondering about the vacuum line from the trans, modulator where is best to connect it. I am thinking that it goes to the intake manifold or carb. but don't see any port that is not being used. I do have a small tube on the exhaust manifold that seems to have vacuum, this line is next to the heat line that goes to the carb. for the choke. Thanks for any help. Gary
also need any tricks to put the rear 1/4 window and mechanism back in, it was a bear to take it out.

Gary, give yourself a Christmas present by ordering a 1958 Shop Manual on book form from one of our many Tbird parts houses listed in the Advertisements Forum. Or download one that you can save to your hard drive and use again and again. The advantage of having it on CD or downloaded as a .pdf file is that you can print out just the pages you need, take them out to the car, get grease on them, wrinkle them, use them and then throw them away if you mess them up. You can always reprint them if necessary. Here is a link to where you can get an electronic copy in .pdf format for just $16.99. You really need a Shop Manual when working on your Tbird.
