Im trying to hook up a vacuum gauge its a 2 5/8 autometer. I am unsure where to hook it up. i have a 92 hb civic with a 1.5L bone stock I have everything setup but not pulling any vacuum. Anyone know where i can plug it into?

I used a cone shaped fitting and just punched a hole in the brake booster hose and forced the cone shaped fitting in the hole until it was very snug. The hose to the vac gauge was plugged into the cone shaped (tapered) fitting. If you ever removed the gauge, you could fill the hole with some silicone or wrap it with tape.

thanks for the quick response. Is that the best place to tap into on a civic? just verifying before i splice into the line. Just want the most accurate reading i can get.

I would recommend going to an auto parts store, gett a "tee" connector for vacuum hoses and "tee-ing" into the vacuum line that runs to the fuel pressure regulator or the vacuum line feeding the Purge Solenoid (little black cylinder on the backside of the intake manifold).

The car has an aftermarket cruise control that was tapped into the booster line. it doesnt work so i plugged in there. I also tried else where but for some reason needle doesnt move. im guessing gauge is faulty weird because its new.
