Totally flying blind as I’ve never been that close to an Elky, but, is there any chance it would have been for a PCV?

The pcv valve hose is much bigger and it connects to the carb. Thanks though!

Yeah, it's been years since I've worked on one of these but I think it went to the evap can on the front core support. If I remember correctly (which is questionable) it is a line that goes up into the clean side of the air cleaner, it was for removing fumes from the canister when at speed. I have a few early to mid '80's GM shop manuals around here I will check, if I come up with something I will scan it and post it up.

Any chance that you have a vacuum hose diagram on the hood or core-support?
