Depending on your carb, distributor and transmission, you have from zero to two vacuum hoses.
If you have an Autostick transmission, there's a vacuum hose running from a port in the intake manifold to the control valve on the left side wall of the engine bay. (Hint: if you've got a car that came with Autostick and that someone's converted to manual transmission, the bracket for the control valve is the perfect place for your coil.) Most people don't have this transmission even if their car came with it--it's only a three-speed and it's hard to find parts for it, so most of those cars have been converted to manual transmission.
The other hose you might have is for your distributor. The port is on the left side of the carb, and a hose runs between it and the metal vacuum advance can on the side of the distributor. If you have a 009 distributor or an aftermarket distributor like an MSD you don't have the vacuum advance can; if you have an aftermarket carb like a Weber you don't have the port. Therefore...you probably don't have any vacuum lines on your engine.
if only one vacuum line then? the vacuum line goes from the vacuum advance on the side of the dizzy, to the carburettor, just around the throttle linkage if i recall. hope this helps.

Check out the autozone.com website and register the truck there. It doesn't cost anything and will give you access to an online repair manual for the truck. The vacuum diagrams should be available there. Hope this helped and best wishes.

havent a clue to be honest ,please describe the symptoms then perhaps i can point you in the right direction.best advice is if it runs ok leave well alone and just clear codes as this could be a very old code or your software isnt compatable with this vehicle

See if you can find a Haynes manual ISBN 1 56392 410 2 This covers the 1980 through 1997 models. There are several different hose diagrams depending on the version you have. There is a California model, a federal model, and a high altitude model.
The hose diagrams are in section 6, around page three in the book I have.
