The pipe which comes from engine on left hand side and runs into bulhead/heater.

Cut it in 2, connect a pipe up to one side of manifold and another to otherside and the remaining bit of pipe.

OR...

Just don't connect it like most people do anyway. It's pretty useless unless you live somewhere where temperatures are -20 all year long.

Only reason for that is to prevent carb icing in very cold weather, and all it does in other times is reduce power...
