Now connect you vacuum gauge to your "Tee" fitting with a length of hose.
Connect the plastic hose you pulled out of the rubber sleeve to the "Tee" fitting.
Insert the remaining leg of the "Tee" fitting into the nipple on the rubber sleeve.

Start the car... just let the car idle and watch the gauge for a few minutes.
Note the readings on the gauge and also the needle action if any.
Your looking for a reading of 18 -22 Hg with a steady needle.

Let me know how it goes and the readings you get... also the needle action if any.

This picture is standing on the drivers side. I’m not quite sure where the rubber sleeve with the nipple is. Can you point it out in this picture? Is it on the side above the "P" in PORSCHE or the "E"?

Thanks for your help!
