On my 77 N/A car there is a metal can on top of the IP. Looks like mabe a govenor, or advance?
Is this to be hooked up to vacuum? if so where? and constant vacuum, Like from VP, or changing from where?

thanks

That's the "ADA".

It senses atmospheric pressure and reduces fuel in the IP as the pressure is reduced (when the vehicle climbs in altitude). The engine would smoke rather badly at 5000 feet without such a device.
