Question Vaccum Line diagram

​​​I am completing my olds 57 before the season, however i have not managed to get the vaccum system complete. Can anyone help me with the vaccum chart showing the whole vaccum system and not just the heating system as in the shop manual

It is neither necessary nor in your best interest to post the same question in multiple places on the forum. You'll get a better response more quickly if you keep all replies in a single thread so incorrect info can be caught and corrected. Good luck.

I stumbled through this last year. Are you looking how to connect up the vacuum lines in the dash or all the other stuff (Fuel/Vacuum pump to carb, wipers, washer pump, etc)?
4GC or J2 (3 carbs)? If J2 are you using mechanical linkages to open the outside carbs or relying on diaphragm?

The carburator is a J2 using linkages

To the OP, you might want to post some pics of your setup so we can give you some direction on what to hookup where. You should definitely look in to getting a Factory Service Manual and Chassis Manual. They have all the info you need. Hopefully, someone comes along withe the schematic your looking for. Otherwise KISS... start with manifold vacuum to your distributor.
