From the actuator on the t case, there's 4 vacuum lines. 2 go to the front right axle to couple it when you shift into 4wd. 1 is a vent, and one goes up to the engine for vacuum supply. I suspect thats the one youre missing, if I get a chance ill look at mine to see where it hooks up. It has a check valve, and that may be where iy unhooked, so if you can find that it will help.

Here is a picture where I extended my vac lines on the front axle. This view is looking up towards the passenger fender.
