HELP - Does anyone have a manifold T-fitting for a '60 401?


Recommended Posts

I am looking for the brass (?)vacuum T-fitting that screws into the intake manifold just ahead of the carb on a 1960 401. This fitting accepts the larger screw-in fitting from the power brake booster pipe, plus has a smaller nipple to accept the distributor vacuum advance rubber tube. GM part No. 1195301 but will accept a generic. Would a generic be commonly available? Any help gladly appreciated to get the old girl back on the road!

Thanks for the response, 40series. The fitting split at its base, where it threads into the manifold. I managed to use a very short piece of 1/4 inch brake pipe as an inner sleeve, so I am back in business. I also mistakenly said it connects to the rubber hose from the distributor vacuum advance, but the tube actually comes from the vacuum oil switch near the temp sensor.
