There is a large rubber line that runs from the engine to the brake
booster and there is a small plastic line that runs on the top of the
console to the mode switch. There are also lines in the left, rear
pontoon going to the vacuum resovoir and the vapor canister. On the
automatics there is a line going to the pressure modulator and there
is a bunch by the firewall for the vacuum advance and the CPR. The
label on the bottom of the engine cover shows most of this. The rest
is just looking and following. I find using a hand-held vacuum tester
is the easiest way because it has a gauge on it and you can see if it
holds vacuum or leaks away and how fast. You really need one anyway
because if you do find that there is a leak on a particular hose it
helps to find it. Leaks can be sneaky. A rubbed through hose, a split
hose, one that looks connected but has actually slipped off, etc.
Among the hardest to find are ones actually ON the motor. Drilled
through tapped holes, loose fittings, hard injector seals, leaking
plugs at the rear of the runners on the intake manifold, "O" ring
seals between the intake manifold and the cylinder heads, etc.
