Default Power Brakes?

Has anyone with a triple carb manifold on their car fitted a vacuum line for power brakes and if so where did you tap into the manifold and what size fitting/pipe did you use? 3/8"?

Using an Edelbrock triple intake, I made 3 1" spacers. Under the front carb
went the PVC, under the center the distributor under the rear the Power Brakes. However we haven't installed them yet and may not as we have different pads and the brakes are OK. raising the carbs, 48 in the middle and 97's on the ends we had more room for the progressive linkage. Have 5 K miles on it so far
