Had a '71 bus in college with a dual port. The fuel shut off valve (i believe that's what it was called....it's been 30 years. screwed into the manifold between the carb and the engine.) vibrated loose creating a hellacious vacuum leak. Found a twig of the appropriate diameter, and twisted it into the hole ....talk about a hippie fix. drove it around like that for a few weeks before I found the fuel shut off valve sitting on the engine, and fixed it appropriately.
1976 VW Bus aka tripod
FI ...8 completely solid lifters.... now it's both kinda noisy and leaky, but she sure runs good!
