Vacuum Advance Pipe

Good afternoon gents. Anyone have any detailed pics of the way the copper vacuum advance pipe runs from carb to distributor?
Thanks in anticipation, as always.

Re: Vacuum advance pipe

Routing is different depending on model. Please specify. On a BJ-7 there's a vacuum hose that attaches copper pipe to rear carb, then it routes around backside of cylinder head above heater tap then on to distributor where is screws into the vac advance canister by olive and nut.
