408 breaks

I recently bought a 408 in good condition , but with bad breaks . The servo is not working and should be replaced . There is a vacuum hose directly from the manifold to the vacuum tank and from the tank to the servo , but also a small hose from the servo connection , disappearing under the dash .does anyone know what it's  function is?

It is the feed pipe for the vacuum screen washers,

Ah, I did not know the Trico system was in the car . The bottle is missing . 
thank You John .

 

I found a trico bottle on the internet , so that problem is solved . 
In the engine bay there is another small hose connected high on the bulkhead  to a connector on the driver side which has been cut off . I can’t find in the manual the function . Suggestions ?

 

Here is a picture of the hose and connector ...

Sorry not familiar with the 408 but on cars using a vacuum system for screen washers  a small tube usually has to go from washer  bottle pump via a  press button switch switch on the dash and chrome button with trico on it then to the vac servo or manifold. Keith
