1 Answer


Hello, Of that era, your problem is vacuum. Vacuum is used to switch directions within the plenum of the heat/AC ducts. Default, (no vacuum) requires all air to be directed to windshield and floor. Start at the engine, look for the main line leading into the firewall; and, make sure you have collapsed hoses, and no carbon in the intake fitting. Most likely if all is good there, one or more of the vacuum servos is leaking, or the bulkhead vacuum connector on back of the actual AC/Heat panel selector is leaking. Hope this Helps, AskTrannyman
