You can explain why you bought this car to someone else.

You’ll need a service manual to figure this out.

Try http://www.Books4Cars.com or your local auto parts store.

Good luck.

By the way, there are two “u’s”,in vacuum.

Look under the hood for the emissions sticker. This should reflect the vacuum hose routing on the engine.

nothing under the hood of my car…checked the haynes and called many auto parts stores

This is the same car mechanically as the 4-cyl Mustang of 1986. If you search on-line for some Mustang forums, you may be able to locate a factory service manual on-line that will help. I got lucky with my Supra, a friend’s 1991 Capri (australian built), and a 1996 Mazda MPV mini-van.

Autozone has a repair guide for 79-88 Mustang/Capri. Here is a link to page with scanned vacuum diagrams (note, there are 192 of them).
