[DML] Changing out vacuum hoses ---> Thermal Vacuum Switch -- where exactlyis it?

After seeing the state of some of the vacuum hoses when trying to hunt 
down a vacuum leak, I decided it was time to replace them.

Got around to changing most of the hoses today with the kit from 
SpecialTauto, and when I got to the Tee that joins the constant pressure 
regulator to the Thermal Vacuum Switch..... I find another Tee further 
along the path!

I don't know why the system was mis-"hosed" the way I found it.  What I 
see is a vacuum hose from manifold to a Tee that supplies vacuum to the 
Vacuum Advance solenoid switch and the pressure regulator. 
Apparently the Thermal Vacuum Switch is totally bypassed, and I am not 
sure how deep I am supposed to dig to see it.  I have an idea where it 
supposed to approximately be from the manual, but I still cannot see 
it.  Any tips?

Also, are there any negative aspects to running vacuum to the fuel 
pressure regulator all the time?  From what I understand... the Thermal 
Vacuum Switch should cut out vacuum to the pressure regulator when the 
engine is above +40C.
