Hi guys just needing some help around getting all the pollution hoses hooked up in my VK. Its a 308 Black motor thats been rebuilt and I'm going for factory spec. I need help with the hoses on the Thermal Vacuum Switch and one on the carby. Im getting conflicting information from the diagrams I have come across.

Firstly can someone tell me where the hose highlighted on the carby connects to please.

Secondly the Thermal Vacuum Switch on the motor has three outings. I know one of it goes to the manifold. I believe one of them connects to the Distributor. As for the third one some diagrams say its to be capped and others say it goes to a T.C.S (Transmission Control Spark) solenoid which my car did not have and I havent come across many other VK's that have it. Is there a way to by-pass the T.C.S ?

... that hose in the carb pic goes to the TCS
(as does one of the hoses off the TVS)

There is a way about not having a TCS if yours is a manual
but not if an auto
