On a carb there are little rubber caps that fit over the points where you attach a carb balancer diagnotic tool. On my Kwak there are four of these attachment points. Three are capped and the fourth is capless and this is where the vacuum hose is attached. The fuel inlet hose is attached to the pipe that feeds the carbs.
Best bet is to google a forum for your particular bike as I can guarantee you are not the first with this question.

I have a k100rs I pulled the Tank and inverted it to fix a leak. When I reinstalled it I drove it a few miles then it died and hasnt started since. Where to start?

The place to start is to check the vaccuum line to the petcock (fuel switch).
Well, make sure the petcock is in the on position first, but then make sure that pesky vaccuum line hasn't come off...if it did, then no fuel comes out of the tank to the carbs!

I have a vaccuum leak and am looking for a diagram of the vaccuum lines. Where can I find one? Also, which vaccuum line would affect blower vents on the 03 expedition?

The easiest way to look for vacume leak it to go to the vents and back track to the vacuum supplier. somewhere you should to hear the vacuum leak somewhere. It amazes me how much of fixing cars is do by hearing and not seeing. Sometimes seeing can miss lead you. Let me know if I can help you and more.

1988 chev corsica v6 automatic 53,000 mi.( yea i know mothers car) kills when comming to a stop. restarts but will kill again when slowing down to stop again. runs fine at speed and at idle does not show...

This might be as simple as checking for vaccuum leaks in th e air hoses, sounds to me like when the revs drop the vaccuum stalls the car. However, could b thee resistor in the distributer. Check timing, there could be a number of reasons, low fuel pressure, plug gap, point gap, blocked fuel filter, idle stop solonoid on carby. Hope this helps, check those vaccuum lines. Good luck

Heat blows onto my feet all of the time in my '80 corvette.

On your vette I cant remember if it is vaccuum operated or manual cable but either way get a manual for the car that has a/c heat in it . You either have a vaccuum line that broke or a bad diaphram or a broke cable. I am almost sure its vaccuum but check that first then look at diagram and slowly work your way from the engine to inside car. you can also try to listen for it with the car running. if its a cable operated then look underdash for the blend door and follow the cable to the a/c control on the dash . one of the two. if you cant find a diagram google it. does the controls feel any different now when truning them ?
