Nice to meet you gents.   I'm relatively "new" to this forum.   Would ask for your expertise!   

Good news - I got my father in law's 1970 Torino started!    It's a 351c-2v.   Quiet as can be! I was impressed!   

A request for your wisdom:   

Might you gents know the routing to the vacuum canister?   It's that "soup can" looking part.    It has 2 hose nipples -- where exactly should they connect to?


Note: Father in law is 89 years old and purchased this from his brother. It's a sentimental car to him and getting it on the road is "my gift" to him.    Should have seen his face "light up" when I got it started!

From what I know one line goes to the vacuum amplifier and the other goes to the intake manifold.

Hey Thanks a million Don!     

If you don't mind me asking - is there a diagram of all the 70 Torino vacuum lines somewhere?      It's been a bit of a "bear" figuring this stuff. 

I purchased a CD with the shop manuals on it ....  but it didn't do a good job "showing" the vacuum routing. 

Thanks for you coaching Don!     I'm appreciative.

I'm just guessing but you should be able to find a diagram on the internet but I don't know of any off hand. I also don't know about 1970 but there was a time when Ford intake manifold vacuum lines had a white stripe on them.

the soup can is a vacuum reservoir, the 2 lines are in & out with a check valve on the In line so any
stored vacuum isn't lost when the engine is in a low vacuum situation (heavy throttle)
 
does your car have the 3 hose heater core with the monstrosity control valve(s)?

On a 1970 the vac check valve is built into the top of canister. There is a vac tree on firewall below cowl that most of the lines tie into. If it is the same shop manual CD that I used most of the vac routing is listed in HVAC section.
Always working on something !!
