Can anyone help me out with the proper way to connect all of the vacuum hoses for the A/C - Heat - Defrost system?When I bought the car the heater core was bad and they had everything blocked off under the hood. The A/C system still has a bit of a charge in it but the dash control does not operate it properly. I currently have the dash out as we are doing a complete interior so now is the time to try and sort it all out. I'm sure we can pick our way through it slowly but I'm also sure there are…See More

It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January-  that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…
