    An uncapped full-time vacuum port results in a moderate vacuum leak, and will cause the engine to run lean along with the attendant drivability issues caused by running lean. The caps are probably deteriorating due to heat. If you cant find another cap to put on the nipple, you can temporarily cut about an inch off a piece of vacuum hose (maybe you can use a little off the distributor vac hose if it has a little to spare), put that on the nipple, and plug thathose with a screw, drill bit or some such until you can get the right nipple cover.
