I love Ford but hate that when I read the shop manuals I have, there are no diagrams for a 351 Windsor. My car has ac and a fmx automatic. It has an aftermarket wieand 4 barrel intake on it with a Holley. 
I have been able the figure out the inner dashboard vacuum hoses, and have them plugged into the supply tank and the heater control valve. I have all the factory vacuum ports form the 2 barrel that came with the car on the intake now. So essentially I’m trying to sort out what I need and don’t need. Any help is appreciated .

Here is the vacuum diagram for a stock 1973 351W:

We also have this thread that has additional vacuum diagrams that may be helpful:" rel="nofollow -

Since you swapped the carb and intake, I am assuming you don't want all the emissions controls.  So obviously things can be simplified, like connecting the distributor vacuum advance directly to the ported vacuum (you may have to recurve the distributor though).
