Not sure where the diagrams came from, I just had them from way back. I can't say about the filter because my car used the single advance set up. I presume from your question that you have the dual advance canister? If so, someone else here should be able to help you figure it out.

Those pictures are in your copy of the 1968 Cougar shop manual.

thanks Royce,
without the vacuum tree in the picture, the car currently has one hose running fomr the intake ,anifold fitting to the distributor, and another running from the base of the carb to the distributor,

after i put in the new vacuum tree, i see how to run the hoses, what do i do about the "filter" shown in the drawing kindly supplied by cobra? and does that mean that lowest fitting is open to the atmosphere?
thanks
