Default heater motor drain hose

Hey everyone, I bought two rubber hoses one is kinda s shaped the goes from the blower motor into the firewall, I guess that is to cool off the blower motor. the other one is called the blower motor drain hose, I don't know where this one goes, any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

I do have AC, so on the other side of the motor the hose should connect there to drain fluid? Funny, I don't remember seeing a place to connect a hose there.

Those hoses were used on a number of different Ford models. As far as I can remember only the S shaped hose is used on Thunderbirds not both.

Our '66 convertible with A/C has both hoses, one "S" shaped coming through the firewall to the motor and the 90 degree hose on the opposite side of the motor to atmosphere . This fan motor has never been out of the car .
