The instructions with my Crane-Cams Hi-4 recommend installing a VOES. I guess i have to drill a hole in the Kehin carb somewhere, and install a tap, to pick up the vacuum. I see there is a plug just in front of the idle mixture screw. Would that be the place to work from? Any suggestions about a tap?

NO. The place to put the 'tap' is in the intake manifold just past the carb flange, in my opinion.

OK, so just drill, and maybe tap, a hole and insert a brass piece [home depot, whatever] to fit the hose from the VOES?

Might have better luck at auto parts store. Then drill hole just big enough for tight fit of brass 'nipple' & tap into hole with a soft (copper or fiberglass) hammer. It's just a carb. vacuum 'nipple'.. If you have a carb. off of your old Chevy lying around, then you can just use a pair of pliers & twist one out.
