Yeah , its a goofy connector, but they work. Easy way to check for a leak, spray some carb cleaner around the connection, see if the idle fluctates. Also to see if the booster is any good. After you turn the engine off , pull the elbow out of the booster to see if its still holding vacuum. ( if you can reach it)
