Help with Wire and Vacuum Lines

1. I need help in finding where this blue with white strip wire goes. It runs in the wiring loom between the carb and cylinder head.

2. The next is a T fitting that is located on a vacuum line that runs between the cylinder head and fire wall.

3. The final is two vacuum lines located near the passenger side frame rail. I have a blue line that goes no where, and a brown or green line that has a rubber fitting on the end and I can't find where it goes.

I'm currently rebuilding the Carter BBD 8384 carburetor.

Any help is appreciated!
Thanks again

I believe I found where the broken blue wire with white strip goes. There is a sensor that is threaded into the intake manifold just forward of the carburetor mount location. Any idea what this sensor is? Intake air temperature?

Found that Autozone has an online repair manual. Cool.

That wire goes to the knock sensor that is screwed into the intake manifold just forward of the carburetor.

Now I just have to findout those two vacuum line issues.
