Hey folks. I am in the process of transferring everything I have on troubleshooting the '68-'82 Corvette headlight and wiper door vacuum systems to my webpage. It's gunna take a while, so please be patient. I have some of it up already, if ya wanna take a look. Everything should be viewable AND downloadable once I am finished, just as the wiring diagrams are. Might not be able to get it ALL loaded until the weekend, so...stay tuned. You can take a look at what I have loaded to this point  from:

Corvette Vacuum Systems

 

and...just a heads up...google is updating the webpages, and I will need to make some changes too, so...if the webpage doesn't work sometimes, that means I'm fiddlin with it, and please try back later.

Otay...website is updated. One problem exists for those wanting to access the '68-'82 wiring diagrams...you MUST have a Google Drive account to see the diagrams. It sux, but I have NO control of it. Navigation of the site on a phone is confusing...you need to click on the menu button on the top/left side to pull down the site menu, and then go from there. Harder to navigate imo than what I had before, but....it am what it am. Vacuum diagrams are still available as before, but there are no longer page links at the bottom of each diagram page. They are now located on the drop-down menu at the top/left of the pages. Click on "Tech Stuff" then click on the "Headlight and Wiper Door vacuum". I will continue to attempt to make navigation of the site easier, but I can't promise anything.

Holy moly, this is fantastic. Thanks for doing this Joel. I've been motivated lately and am slowly working on the never ending small projects on my Vette. Coming up soon on the list are the headlights, which don't pop up now, so your site will be a huge help. After that, I might even tackle the wiper door (and wipers) which haven't worked since I've owned the car...

John, I've had all that available for years....I just had to send it via email to individuals that requested it. Now it's on the site for anyone to view or download. Since they made me update the site tho, it appears I still have to grant access to some of it....it's always something!! Lol

btw folks...if you are visiting this forum as a guest, and request access to these diagrams, it may take a while before I "share"....at least until I figure out all of the nerd stuff involved.....just a warning. While the site itself is public, and anyone can poke around, these diagrams have been forced onto the google drive thingy....and I don't like that. I'll do my best to get them to anyone that requests access....just be patient. 🤓
