Carb/EGR question

I just purchased a rebuilt MC2100 carb for my 1974 304 V8, my old carb had a connection on the drivers side front above the mixture screw for the EGR hose, my new MC2100 does not have this connection, so how do I hook up my EGR?

Any ported vacuum source will work for the EGR. The vacuum should be controlled by a CTO valve, so the EGR only operates when the engine is warm. Ported vacuum is usually found above the baseplate of the carb. There will be no vacuum at idle, but it will become present with increased RPMs.

The PCV valve needs a manifold vac source. Manifold vacuum can be pulled from intake runners, or from the base of the carb. If the nipple has vacuum at idle, it's a manifold vac source.

Thanks for the input guys, I can see where I could put a ported vacuum source for the EGR but that port is already being used for my temp. sending unit for the temp. gauge, could I "T" the egr into another ported vacuum source? And where are the other ported vacuum sources on the V8 engine?
I have a ported vacuum switch coming out of the thermostat housing, could I "T" the egr in there?

Thanks

Huh? Why is your temp sender hooked up to a vacuum source?

Go here, do some reading, then get with us.

We all know he's talking about a V8 right??

Does it matter with respect to EGR plumbing?

And have you ever heard of a temp sender that is hooked to ported vac?

I think the OP may be in a little over his head, but I think we can save him.

Just to clarify my novice thinking, but doesn't the temp sending unit screw into the manifold where coolant cycles? Wouldn't hooking it up to vacuum suck it into the cylinder? Same thing in the thermostat housing which is blatantly just coolant?

Just location of the parts.

The CTO works off of water temperature also and switches vacuum off and on depending upon temperature. So vacuum wouldn't reach the water.
There is like a wax plug that moves a piston up and down to cut off or open the ports on the CTO.
