Hi and thank you for your question.
There is a screw in the left side of the carb that you must remove to attach an adapter to so you can connect your vacuum line for your sync gauge. I have included a parts diagram that shows the screw that must be removed. It is #38 in the diagram.

If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.
Thanks Customer
