Your tip made it seem obvious. I CAREFULLY re-checked the service
manual and found what should have been a Y connector had been broken in
two and half of it reinstalled holding the remaining hose.
All that time looking for an empty connection, It never would have
dawned on me that one of the connections was to be shared.
Now timing and off to smog.
Thanks to you I have faith!

One or the other probably connects to the intake manifold - its leak is
making the motor idle poorly - it will never pass the smog test this way
- excessive HC due to too lean a mixture and misfiring on that account.
Carefully look at the intake manifold and throttle area for a connection
Suggest you investigate ignition distributor's vacuum connections.
That your "mechanic" screws it up and says "here," YOU figure it out is
unconscionable. I'd report him to your state's licensing board.
