  1. I have my evaporator core out for repair and your photos of the HVAC box are a BIG help thank you.  One question pertaining to the blend door to the left of the evaporator core.  My actuator was missing and I found a replacement. When vacuum is applied and the actuator pulls, which position should the blend door be in? Should it close the top opening above the heator core, or close the opening when air flows under the heater core.  I not sure which way to mount the acutator as the old one has been long gone.  Thanks!

      Boy - let me rack my brain on this (I don't have the car anymore).  Firstly, the blend door actuator is actually controlled manually (as I recall) from the position of the lever that slides from cool to hot on the HVAC control panel.  You should be able to figure out which way is which - for instance when moving the lever towards cool check to see which way the end of the control cable (that attaches to the actuator) moves.

      I hope I understood the problem.

      You know I recall that the heater control cable was also attached to the back of the HVAC control to manually move when the temp lever was moved from hot to cold and this also had the blend door cable attached so they moved together.  I forgot about that since long ago I had removed the original heater control broken cable totally and installed a separate control for that using a simple choke-type cable.

      That makes sense.  But I wonder how they attached two cables to that control panel?  I like the choke cable idea if I can find a way to mount it so it looks decent.  Thanks for you help! This car has been a all out nightmare to deal with.
