New and need info!

Hey folks. First time here and I seem to be one of the few on the South-East side, around Conyers to be exact. If any of you folks can help me with a carb problem, I would appreciate it.
I have a 77 F150 with a 351M 2V Motorcraft remanufactured carb. I need vacuum line/emission diagrams and/or a spec list of what was on the 77 F150 as far as those issues are concerned. I have a mid-78 F150 that is all original to look at but I don't know how much of the specs from the 78 is applicaple to the 77. If any of you have any diagrams, names of manuals, personal contacts, or info of any kind it would help. I was told that the 77 F150 was in the HD category and all the vacuum and emisions that are on the 78 and the 77 F100 didn't apply to my truck. If that is the case, then the aftermarket carb that was on my truck when I got it either wasn't the correct one or it has a bunch of plugs that need to be installed. Man, I got vacuum leaks for days! For example: The choke has a vacuum leak where the hot air stove pipe is supposed to be. But the intake doesn't even provide for the pipe bolt up. Had to plug that leak. The carb doesn't have any dash pot assembly parts on it at all. The electric choke, minus the stove pipe, doesn't have a vacuum line going to the choke pull off. The choke linkage has a zip tie to prevent the choke from opperating at all. Makes it rough on those cool mornings. I guess the main thing I need is to pick your brain for the info of what was actually on the carb as far as vacuum and emisions are concerned on a 77 F150 351M 2V 4X4 with a C6 auto?
Thanks for any help. And I'll check back often to see what's going on with the Southern Metro Gang in the morning. Glad I found this site!
