Hi  all,
Ok ,  so now  I  am  on to the  Vacuum  lines.
I  have AC,  in  all the diagrams  that  I  can  find  it  shows  a  vacuum  hose going from  the  climate control  over  to  the  passenger  side  fresh air  vent  actuator.  That  I understand.
Now,  can anybody  tell  me  what  controls  the  DRIVERS SIDE  fresh  air vent???????
Here  is  pretty much what I find.
 First  is without AC

This is with  AC

I  can  not  find  anything ,  picture  ,  diagram  ,  nothing that  tells me  what  I  need.
So  hopefully  in  this  vast  wealth  of  knowledge,  someone has  the  answer.
I want to  get  my  interior back  together  so  i  can get  this  monster  on the  road.
Thanks
Joe

As far as I know, the A/C cars did NOT have a driver side vent in the kick panel area....that may explain why you cannot find a diagram for it.
If your car has a vent on the driver side kick panel, either it was a non-A/C car from the factory, or maybe they ran out of A/C panels when the car was being assembled, and they used what they had on hand....
That being said, I also say that I am not all that up on the early cars, as far as the A/C-venting systems....so I could be wrong.

Joel, This was a non-air car. I installed the AC for the wife.

That being said, I may just get a manual pull for that side. Or I may just modify it to be closed at all times.
Any other input is helpful.
Thanks.
Joe

there isn't an opening on the drivers  side anyway if I remember right, pull the kick pad and look.........sorry, if your car was a factory  non AC car there is an opening, only AC cars were closed on the drivers side....I think Confused, if you car was a factory non AC car the openings on the outside of the back window  also had a vac operated door for the air to flow out inside of the by the package rack,  AC cars were sealed closed......I think.

Joe, since your's was non-A/C, the driver(both sides, actually) side vent was operated by a cable from the shift console. It would be just like the set-up in your first diagram up there. If you still have the non-A/C shift console, there should be two slots on either side of the control panel for the cable pull levers...

Thanks,

both of you guys are right.
Air cars were closed off on the drivers side.
I just bought my vacuum adapter and all the brackets and hardware yesterday for the passenger side.
I also bought a manual choke cable at advance auto and I am goin to make a bracket so I can mount it so I will be able to open/shut the drivers side vent.
I just have to find a nice spot to mount it under the dash. (tonights project)
