Asked by May 31, 2015 at 10:59 AM about the 1963 Ford Thunderbird

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1963 Thunderbird, The heater fan works, the heater HEAT selector switch moves and appears to work, The hot water pipe is correct and hot running through the system but I THINK that there is a Vacuum pipe needed somewhere.
Where is connected, how many are there. when I turn the blower on and the water pipes are hot there is NO output under the dash or the windscreen

Any other information will help
thanks
Neil Willis.
