  1. you could also try your local hobby store. they sell copper line as well, say for smalll planes boats cars that sort of thing. I have a remote boat that uses a small copper line for a water intake. that may be your answer.
  2. [i have a 65 buick wildcat convertable and is loaded w options pw pl p seats p top a/c cruise . I have two vacuum tanks. one is about the size of a soft ball the other in the fender like in your pic. it is about the size of a coffee can. QUOTE=unihikid;1092525]thanks john,it was only running rish in lake arrowhead,its fine out here in dallas.the i bought a rebuilt carb off of ebay because i thought the one on the 401 was a after market one,but i discovered its the one that was factory installed,also the shocks that were on it were factory installed(from what the auto shop said),and then i found out the carb i bought was for a 300 engine so its still boxed up.right now it has a major tranny leak so driving it is not gonna happen yet,i start it up once a week until the cold light goes off. as far as vac lines go,all of the lines are plugged up.one of the tanks have been removed(before i bought the car) and i dont know what size to replace it with,its mount is still there but i havent seen a tank in that area for any full size buick from 1966.it also has what looks like 2 other tanks in the passenger side fender.[ATTACH=CONFIG]160017[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]160018[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]160019[/ATTACH]heres a pic of the bracket for the tank.
