Cooling system issues...

Oh am I having fun...
So i replaced heater core a while ago and that went fine... then i ran the car to check make sure nothings leaking and nothing was. What did happen is the top rad hose got hot and preassurized however the lower one did not... So we thought its thermostat. I replaced it and did the same test and same thing happened. I took out the rad and checked it and it is not plugged neither is res tank and all hoses seem fine. what I did not ice is that the 3 hoses coming out of the firewall from the heater core are messed up. 1 is sliced and jimmy rigged another one seems fine however the 3rd, the middle one... is just cut off and plugged with a brass plug. I've been looking at the Bentley Manual and I cannot find any diagrams of where this hose goes...

If any of you have a diagram I will be forever greatful PLEASE HELP shop my car is in closes july 31st and i need to fix this by then and get the car out
