My bad, the cable should go into the trans on the pass side. I mistakenly said the driver's side.
Just forward of the dipstick tube.
Just because you don't see the cable, doesn't mean that it shouldn't be there.
Looking at the transmission, from the dipstick tube, just forward of the dipstick tube, is the cooler line ports, just forward and below them is the hole for the kickdown cable.
If it is plugged, that means someone has modified it.
The problem is, that the TV modulator (kickdown) may not be in the correct position and may be causing problems.
As for the vacuum line to the vacuum modulator, the lower rear port on the carb is for the brake booster. It can be used, but hooking up to it is often more of a pain than it's worth.
The best bet is to hook up to the manifold at the port just to the rear of the carb, between the carb and distributor. That is the port that was designed for the vacuum modulator.
