on the setup i had the pipe came from a hose atached to the coolant tank, have you thought about putting twin carbs on? it will make your van a lot more responsive and powerfull, much nicer to drive. i am sure laurie was doing a set up using twin solex, with all bits needed to fit them. well worth a try.
