Here is a vacuum diagram for a 351W from a pickup.  It is the same for the Bronco minus one of the Purge CV hookups.  The second diagram is a picture of my hookup without the air pump.

Yes, those are the ones I kept.  Those lines do three things for the engine operation: 1. Vacuum advance for the distributor 2. Improve cold start running characteristics of the engine 3. Properly regulate the pressure inside the gas tank and burn off emissions vapors from the tank.

Red is the main vacuum lines. Yellow is the vacuum advance. Black vents the gas tank and burns off the evaporative emissions as controlled by a Vacuum Control Valve (VCV) and the Vacuum Control Solenoid (VCS)that gets vacuum from the gray line. The orange lines give it better cold start characteristics by controlling the the exhaust feedback to the warm the intake until the engine gets to 165 degrees. The Vacuum Throttle Kicker (VK) prevents the idle  from dropping all the way out suddenly on quick deceleration prevent the engine from stalling,
