New to me 87 635.

I have been wanting a 635csi ever since I was 17 and saw my first one.
I finally got one this week.It needs some work,but was dirt cheap,rust free,and passed California emissions easily.
My problem is that it has a very rough idle at start up,it smooths out after a bit of driving.
None of the vacuum lines are hooked up,just plugged.Also the 2 metal lines that run in the valley beside wiper motor go no where .I ordered a service manual,but it wont get here till next week.I was wondering if anyone had a detailed vacuum diagram,as well as fuel lines.
I absolutely love this car,and would appreciate any help you guys can offer.

I will try to add some pics.has original rims,that I am gonna throw away on sat.lol
