    How is telling us to print out the OP and that it “should be pretty obvious” helping us? Have you even looked at the vacuum lines
    How is asking for pics being a lazy ass? Also, why you white knighting for the condescending prick? All me and other dude wanted was some pics to guide us through any questions we might encounter along the way. Nothing lazy about that, especially when I’m trying to you know, DO THIS MYSELF.

    the original pic's didn't show much anyhow. it looks just like the real thing Milt didn't know how to put arrows in his pic's. if you print out the post you'll have it in hand while your looking at your truck and fallow along the best you can. Or just take it to a shop and pay them to put specific lines on. that's how I'll do it if I ever do because I am lazy and don't have many tools.

    thanks for the more serious reply, much appreciated. My main confusion at this point was how OP connected the copper lines to the barbs on the hub itself. I spent some more time searching through some hotrod forums and came to the conclusion that it would be beneficial to use copper and silicone tubing. Run the copper lines as close to the hub as possible and then connect the copper to the hub with a small section of silicone vacuum hose to allow for some movement/flexibility.

    Going to attempt this this weekend hopefully and I’ll post pics of my progress.

    After all my nonsense, I discovered yesterday that California will not allow you to run hard lines for any part of the vacuum system and you WILL FAIL SMOG if you do so. Pretty lame and makes no sense to me.

    So I'm going to look into Forged Offroads silicone upgraded hoses or build my own with some heavy duty silicone tubing.

    I've been hoping someone would come up with braided plug and play.
