Do you have a diagram for how vacuum lines hooks to engine 1973 corevtte engine set in 1978 Corvette body I had someone working on car that left in the middle of rebuild?
I don't have any diagrams, perhaps someone else will have one, but the older models didn't have many lines. There would be a spark-ported line from the distributor to somewhere along the main body of the carb, usually about half-way up the body. A vacuum guage would show little to no vacuum at idle and more vacuum at part-throttle. There would also need to be a large vacuum line from the power brake booster to either the intake manifold or the throttle body of the carb, depending on the year, and another for the pcv valve. These would use a 3/8" nipple. You'd need another line (also a continuous source) to the transmission if it's an automatic. Some models may have a vacuum actuated choke and possibly a source for disappearing headlights. Can't think of anything else.
You can purchase a 1957 Chevy Corvette different places. There are some car dealers, used or new, that might have them as traded cars, you can check your newspaper, you might find them at car auctions. There is also many Corvette Clubs, you might try to locate one in your area to see if they can help you purchase one.

One can purchase very nice Corvette rims on Ebay. Ebay is the best site of which to purchase rims for a car on because Ebay is a mass dealer and has worldwide companies inquiring on different products. This mean that one will get a very good price on Corvette rims on Ebay rather that any other smaller store or business.
Let me first say by no means do I mean this to be a jerk, But if you have to ask this question you should not do it yourself. I say this because you dont want to spend $400-$800 on a rebuild for it not to last maybe a season find someone who know about engines to help you or to teach you. To get a good quality rebuild there are certain step and processes…
