    i just ripped out my old A/C bc it hastn worked in years. Today i took out the gauges for the heater and A/C on hte dash and put a CB in it's place. What i want to do is run my heater to switch next to my lights and such so that i still have access and use of the heater. It can get cold enough for it sometimes. Is there a way i can do this? /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    You could just run a pull cable for the flap valve (unless old one used vacuum like my 84 SUB). Then a toggle switch for high on the blower motor. Just run power to the switch and the other wire to the motor.

    I ran a wire from the battery to the switch and from the switch to the blower motor, but you still have to have the heater controls... /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif </font><blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr />

    [/ QUOTE ] I have vacuum and it sucks if you disconnect it , it's hard to find where it goes behind the dash... /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
