2.3 Turbo vacuum line routing

I have a 79 Pace Car with the 2.3 turbo 4-cyl. On the wastegate, there are 2 vacuum line fittings, but no lines. Does anyone know where these 2 vacuum lines are routed to ?

I tried to post an attachment, showing a picture of what I was trying to describe, but it won't let me post an attachment, for some unknown reason.

One port will require boost pressure from the compressor housing, the other is usually a vent. Idk what that specific turbo/gate looks like so if you can post a pic, it'd be more helpful.

I've never seen that gate before honestly. Most "internal" wastegates apply pressure from the compressor to the top port to push the rod toward the compressor, opening the gate flap.

Safest way to determine what's going on there is probably to use an air compressor and apply 5-7-10psi to the top and bottom port and see how it acts. I imagine applying pressure to the top port is correct and maybe the bottom port is for vent. Maybe somebody else will chime in.

Maybe join TheTurboForums and ask there. There are a few 2.3 gurus in that forum
