    Yup...that's the part I am trying to figure out....Ideally i'd like to remove the tube and plug it at the block. I think its press fit into the block? With where it's located up under/against the firewall, the time to do such a thing is if the engine was out....the only manifold source of vacuum it has is the wiper connection, but that is not a problem as electric wipers would be used.

    Doesn't it have a Qjet on it? Normally they have a pipe thread port on the back of the carb at the bottom.
    Edit: I went back and looked at some of your pics...in post #53 the back of the carb is visible & there's no vacuum port, but in post #45 there appears to be a large vacuum connection on the front of the carb base.

    Yes the draft tube is pressed into a port in the block. Remove the tube and install a plug (ie. soft plug).
    If you look around, you should be able to find a newer intake manifold with more than one vacuum port. If not, drill and tap your manifold to add a port. Craigslist, ebay or the local pick-in-pull is where I would look. My neighbor just sold an Edelbrock aluminum manifold to a son in law a couple of weeks ago for very little.
