The previous owner of my 300D did this and the temporary solution was to get a larger diameter vacuum hose to slip around that 1-2mm of lip where the port flares out before the barbed part of the vacuum line. If you still have this, you should be able to get by for quite a while. For some insurance, you can rubber cement or silicone the outside to ensure the new hose stays on. This lasted me a few thousand miles.

You can get the main vac line from a junkyard if you bring along a mityvac and can ensure it holds vacuum. No need to pay so much on just a hard plastic hose. I paid less than $8 for mine.
