88 Bronco II Cruise Control

Hey everyone,

First-time Ford owner here. I picked up an 88 Bronco II XLT to use as a winter beater back in November. The guy who owned it before me was a "mechanic"... meaning there are a lot of things done on it recently, which were all half-assed. New brake shoes on badly worn drums, new hatch lift struts which are for a different vehicle and modified to (partly) work, and so on.

Anyway, he said the cruise control unit was leaking vacuum so he took it out and there was a replacement unit included with the truck. I figured out where it mounted and how the cable runs to the throttle body, but have no idea what the vacuum routing should be. The diagram under the hood makes no mention of a cruise unit, and no amount of Googling seems to help either. It looks like near the back of the intake plenum there's a vacuum line about the right size that's capped off, but I doubt that simply runs directly to the cruise servo... does it?
