  The booster needs clean-ish straight vacuum from the manifold and I'd 
use a one way check valve as well.. though in actual use, if the 
crankcase is vented to the rear carb I have to admit the booster does 
already gets "dirty" air. If you are not venting to the carbs just run a 
longer hose down towards the ground to atmosphere. Though your OR 
environmentalists won't be happy.. ;-)
