560SL ... where do these Vacuum Lines go?

Was replacing Fuel Injectors in my 1986 560SL and
found a Vacuum Line that I can't figure out where it
goes. I plugged it off temporarily by putting on a rubber
joint and plugged with a screw.

The other end runs under the Fuel Distributor.

Where does this Vacuum Line go?

Nice job on the fuel injectors.

Too dark in the Garage now for my 70 year old eyes to see.

Sounds like the injectors were the right ones for the car. Glad we could get together.

The 560SL has a charcoal canister they just hid it. It is under the fender. You have to remove the plastic splash guard to access it.
