Help! location of manifold stem/nipple?

Does anyone know where the stem/nipple on the intake manifold is located? The vac hose accidently pulled off when I was trying to undo the hose attached to the bov and now I cant find where it originally came from!
Can someone confirm this is the correct vacuum stem on the manifold??

Also, I have a Tial Q bov and they told me I need a larger .25 inner diameter vac line then the .16 I'm currently using, however when I test fitted a .21 it did not fit snug onto the stem in the pic, it did not take much wiggle force to come off. Is it still ok or should I stick with the .16?

That hose doesn't just pop off like that from the manifold. Chances are you broke that nipple and to fix it, It's not going to be fun. Either you buy a new manifold or like others stated JB weld it in place. Getting to that nipple to JB weld it is Another story as its requires you to take off a couple of parts to get a clear look at that nipple.

I've done it... that moment sucked ass. He would likely have the nipple in the vac hose if it broke.

I've just attached a pic of what I think may be the nipple on the manifold but am not 100% sure. Can someone please confirm this is it??

Use the .16 hose for a foot then use plastic connector to match the larger diameter needed for the tial. Glad u didnt break the nipple btw
