Default '66 Automatic Details

Can someone post pictures of a '66 Tri-Power, showing the transmission vacuum line routing from the brass vacuum block to the passenger side rear of the manifold?

I have the original steel line, but it's been bent so I don't know how to restore it and route it.

The '64 and '65 automatic setups are similar, but I don't know if the transmission vacuum line is routed the same.

Those ^^^^ look familiar.

My 1966 YR (Tri-Power Automatic) Unrestored Survivor.

This ‘66 is factory correct under the hood and has the one year only transmission vacuum line for the 3x2 automatic option.

First photo is from a 1966 magazine test article.
The rest of the photos are of my ‘66.

A few more.

Notice the factory clip to secure the transmission vacuum line attached by the transmission bolt.

Thank you! I’ll post pictures after the restoration is complete.

I’m always troubled with the question of what to do to prevent rust on the steel vacuum lines. With something like Eastwood’s clear finish, the chance of peeling and/or non-factory appearance is the worry. The factory did not protect these steel lines in any way I’m aware of.
