    Right yesterday I removed my Inlet mani and installed a "Intake Phenolic Insulator Gasket" which I got from Bill "Thanks for Quick delivery Bill".
    I also took the opportunity to sprayed the inlet mani and simplified the oil breather system "still waiting for catch can".
    Anyway my question is can I replace the brake servo vac pipe from the mani to the the connector near the strut brace "highlighted in red" I have also ordered a 12mm non return valve to replace the bodge job rachet extension bar i shoved in pipe.
