    Where to find the detail? Why on the carburetor rubber cap on the brass tube?

    Your question is hard to understand. I think you are referring to a vacuum source. The carburetor may be used on different engines. If your engine/installation does not need the vacuum, it will simply be sealed with a plastic/rubber cap.
