Default Missing hose and check valve

I recently was experiencing some problems with my cruiser stalling so I cleaned the throttle plates and iac, but I must have disconnected something by accident in the process because I can hear a LOUD vacuum leak when I start the car up. I must have accidentally removed the valve/ose that goes on this elbow connector, but can't figure out what it's actually called to replace it or look up where it might be. I'm not exactly car savvy. Many thanks.

That is the elbow on the booster for the speed control. Speed control is located on the left corner of the engine compartment when you stand in front of the car. Follow the black plastic vacuum tube from the speed control down towards the booster area. It looks like it might be tucked in behind the 2 heater hoses in the picture you supplied.

I followed the vacuum hose to where you said, and there is anpther hose leading away from that spot on the engine to behind the two heater hoses, but it goes off deep behind there and I'm hesitant to just start yanking lines because I think it's connected to something where it goes.

Just found it! Someone had worked on the car sometime before and had tucked the valve up between the metal plate and firewall and didn't put it back. I guess cleaning the throttle plate opened something up enough for it to just now start putting out enough suction for me to hear it!
