I'd like to hook up a vacuum gauge to the intake manifold of a 1997
chevy 3/4 ton 4-wheel drive pickup with a 5.7 L engine but it doesn't
seem to have any port through which to do this. It is a two-piece
manifold, the upper portion being plastic on top of which is the
throttle barrel and fuel injection.
How is this done these days?
The last time I did any vacuum testing it was 20 years ago and on a
Datsun with a simple carburator.
Tap into an existing vac source.
Look just behind the brake master cylinder,
you should find one somewhere in that area.
