Unhappy Vacuum hose nightmare

Just had my engine rebuilt by the local mercedes experts(?) here in Kuwait. My car is 1987 190 2.0L carb model which did not get imported to the US. The rebuild went just fine. However they did not get the vacuum line routing anywhere near correct and they say everything is working fine but it is not. The vacuum routing to the tranny and distributor are major concern. I don't remember the exact routing but I know the way they routed them is not correct. Anyone know where I can get a schematic or does anyone have time to walk me through how to get them correct. I have 2 haynes manuals but they dont provide the info and manuals were not put on CD for this model.

Look in the area of your radiator support. There should be a vacuum diagram, about the size of a 3 x 5 card and silver color.

Looked for it before in the radiator support area and found no card or sign of a missing card. Looked everywhere under the hood and had no luck.
