It will (obviously!) tell you your manifold vacuum, which could be of 
marginal use to you. For example, you can use it to maximise your fuel 
economy. I personally can't think of any other use for one, although others 
I would be interested to learn more about the RHD conversion, as I have 
thought about doing the same for the UK roads. Are you able to give me more 
info about how you did it?

Subject:  Corsa dash in a Monza

G’day everyone,
I am currently finishing connecting the last few remaining electrical wires 
on our now lengthy ground restoration of our (converted to RHD) 1965 Monza 
convertible. I am pleased to say that this restoration is making good 
progress and is likely to be finished within the next 6 months! But here’s 
my question.....

During the restoration / RHD conversion I added a Corsa instrument panel and 
I am now wondering, considering our ‘65 Corvair Monzas 110 hp engine is not 
Turbocharged, whether there is any point in connecting a Vaccum line to the 
Manifold Vaccum Pressure Gauge?

I am told that the gauge will simply read zero all the time. If this is case 
perhaps there is no point in running a vaccum line. However is there a 
reason to connect this gauge nevertheless?

Would appreciate any opinions on the above.
