It sounds to me like you have a AR-88-LF which does not have the S-meter. The AR-88D does and when you compare the two schematics, it will show you where to hookup the S-meter.
The wiring that you see terminating near the future S-meter location follows the wiring harness towards the IF tube from which cathode resistor it will originate when hooked up, but is not at present connected. It probably is soldered to one of the unused tube socket terminals.
