MYSTERY Insulated line
#1
I have been working the last few days replacing all my brake lines.  While im under the car taking off the front cross over brake line I noticed this insulated line just hanging there connected to nothing.

Im just curious if anyone could shed some light on what this goes to.

Thanks

Looks like the tube that runs from the exhaust manifold to the choke housing on the carb(?)

very possible. Hopefully someone has a picture of where it connects. That would really be helpful.

Here is a pic of 73 Q but the heat tube only comes from the intake manifold not the exhaust? I would have to go look closer not looked close in years. Also could be different on 73 with the EGR system.

I believe on the 302s the other end connected to the exhaust manifold.

It goes from the rh exhaust manifold to somewhere on the carb choke. housing. I may have my old manifolds from a 302. The right one has this line intact.

OK keep looking for a picture.

Is this hard tubing line made? Or do I have to make one of my own.

No idea if it's available by itself. It appears to be possibly pressed into the manifold and there is a connecting nut on the other end.
Are you saying you can't open the picture? I sent it from my phone to my computer then copied and pasted it to the forum. It comes up when I read the post on my computer. I'll ask my wife to sort the picture problem out if it doesn't work for you...………...LOL!!!
