Is there an existing hook-up point for a vacuum guage on a KL motor? I really don't want to drill hole in intake manifold or carb. Thanks

Unless you're fortunate enough to have a later model with the closed crankcase breather like this picture, there's no way I know of to attach a vacuum gauge to the intake manifold. Drilling and tapping cast iron or aluminum is always risky of causing stress cracks.

My KL single carb intake manifold has a small drain plug. No idea if you can use that.
