There are three vacuum actuators on the air plenum in the engine compartment. Two of the actuators on my car are bad. I have tried searching everywhere and can't find a source for these.
So, I just put the one remaining functional actuator to work on the heat/air selector door.
Looks like the fresh air/recirculate flap is gonna be set to full time recirculate, and whatever the third actuator hooks to isn't gonna work either.
I have been searching for a heater core as well, but the only one I found is on ebay at 119.00. Seems steep? So I may just clean this one up and reinstall it.
So, if anyone knows a source for the actuators or a heater core, I would certainly like to get that info....

I've yet to find a hose that will fit behind the dash neatly and fit. Also, the vac hose is a pain to fit all five hoses on to the control (at the dash) if the hose gage is too thick. I guess, what I'm saying... grab vac hose if you get the chance.

As for the actuators, I got to looking at some of the Torino stuff I had stashed.
Well, I found that the defrost actuator will work for the fresh air/recirc actuator. AND, since it is a two stage actuator, it will do the job of the third actuator as well!
I love it when junk laying around has a use.

Got the entire thing put back together last night and drove the car around the block a few times. The brakes are working great, but my bro says the power assist is kinda weak. So, we're gonna be looking at that.
But, the heat and air is all reassembled, all I need to do is reinstall the dash controls and hook up the vacuum lines. Then a little electrical troubleshooting and hopefully we have some kind of climate control.
Does anyone have a source for the canvas ducting for the defroster vents? Doesn't have to be canvas, of course, it just has to fit.
