i have no vacuum hoses what do i do

i have a 88 Ford mallard with a John Deere chasis and a 7.5l 460 engine and most of the vacuum hoses are missing or have screws in the connectors does anybody have any idea why someone would do this and what i should do to fix it or if it has modified somehow because some of the vacuum line are hooked up but id say 90% are missing

Back in the day the back yard mechanics used to remove all the hoses and plug the holes. The idea was that it would lead to better performance. Which of course it did not. Your best bet would be trying to find an old service manual or consult with the Ford dealer to see who might have a manual. The hoses will be readily available from Napa, but you need to know where they go.

Back when your RV was new, some people would disable the anti-smog emission systems since these were thought to reduce power, mileage, and drive-ability (and many did just this). While some Ford RV owners here may have the information you need, also consider researching the internet for Ford engine or truck forums; where you should find lots of information about your engine.
