Sounds like you should buy yourself a Haynes manual for your car. Also you should have a vacuum hose schematic under your hood. Usually though just having a vacuum hose off will not stop your car from running. If you have a hose off it will idle at a higher RPM. You can hook up a vacuum gauge to your engine and see what it reads if you can get it to idle. You should have between 17-22 in. Hg.

vauum hose will not stop your car from starting sounds like you might have other problems, make sure you have a good spark & fuel to the carb.
