Previously in this string you talked about "capping off" the vacuum switch.

I have just bought a '74 Jensen Healey (S/N 15223) which has stock motor and Strombergs but the vacuum switch is missing.  Would you recommend still teeing the distributor vacuum line into the carburator vacuum lines or just run the vacuum retard directly off the inlet manifold port?

Can anyone tell me exactly how the vacuum switch works (i.e. opening/closing pressures etc.)?

It is also missing the carbon canister so does anyone out there have any alternative methods for venting the gas tank?

As a new member I would like to say to all that contribute that I think this web site is great.  I owned a JH when I was young and dumb and stripped it to the crank and rebuilt it.  I sure do wish there was something like this back then.  (Now that I'm old and dumb I went and bought another one).
