new member west midlands,86 bently 8

a lifetime want has been achieved I now have a Bentley 8 and i have got loads of questions so one at a time,under the bonnet RHS at the front is the air intake housing a paper filter with a big dia flex tube to the carbs,there is a a smaller pipe connection also with what looks like a vacumme operated flap it looks like a fresh air intake but there is no pipe fitted!,so my question is what should be there? and where would it fit? I just cannot see anywhere where it would fit,any help gratefully appreciated

Hi and welcome to the forum, I am guessing here but if you have a look at the inlet manifold I'm sure you'll find a matching connection or even a pipe hanging loose somewhere, I would suggest you ask your question on the SZ forum in the technical assistance area as more people will see it there and you're more likely to get an answer.
Best of luck
