the one from the intake, i.e. north of the carb, is just vent not
vacuum. anything south of the carb is real vacuum. thus, i'd guess
that the blanked tube and the distributor cap nozzle are supposed to be
connected - in a lot of cars, the distributor cap is so vented to
[theoretically] reduce moisture condensation.

but don't take my word for it - find the manual. if you bought the
spark tube gaskets from your local dealer, try them and see if they will
let you look at their manuals or microfiche.

your posts are really f-ed up. google groups for posting is a /really/
bad idea. download a /real/ newsreader, and sign up to one of the free
text-only newsgroup servers on the net so you don't keep on polluting
this group with multiline whateveritis. please.

The vacuum line with the screw in it is for the air-cleaner heat-riser
valve. If you're in a warm climate, you can just remove that vacuum line
entirely and forget about it. Just make sure the riser valve is CLOSED
(look or feel inside the air-cleaner snorkel: should be clear through and
not blocked).
Notice the exposed pipe under the valve on the snorkel? That should go to a
heat-stove on the exhaust manifold, but the corrugated connecting pipe is
missing.

The supposed vacuum line on the distributor cap is just an air-vent. Leave
it alone.

The "vacuum line connects to branch" photo is taken from too close-in. I
cannot tell what's around it.

@ tegger:Thanx for the help.Sorry about the pic being to close up.Will
take a better one.Regarding the corugated pipe, this is my 2nd Honda
and both had the same snorkel on the aircleaner and a similar pipe on
the exhaust manifold cover.I assumed that it could be for colder
climates to pre-heat the air.However on both Honda's thats missing.I
guess since we here in South Africa generally have weather never
goiing below 10 deg C that we dont make use of that.Thanx again

That's correct. It's to help vaporize fuel in the carb when the temperature
is near or below freezing.

Where you are, you don't need it.

nah, it's an icing thing. important in a moist cold climate.
/essential/ with ethanol fuels that contain their own moisture.
