Either a coolant crossover passage or an exhaust crossover passage. Does the carburetor have a choke heat tube that goes from the carburetor to the exhaust manifold? If so, it's a coolant passage. If not it's an exhaust passage. HTH. -Jim

Vehicle already has electronic fuel injection. I was asking because I had a vacuum problem and tried to solve it by replacing the intake manifold gasket. I installed a tailormade gasket which I cut out of a Viton rubber sheet. Material is fuel and temperature resistant up to 250°C / 482°F. Just wanted to be sure rubber gasket will not overheat.
