Default Vacume System

The vacume system on my 64 Thunderbird seems to be disconnected. Can anyone tell me what is supposed to be connected to the vacume system on a 64 Thunderbird and can someone post a photo of how it all connects under the hood please? I know it is supposed to connect to the air con under the dashboard and the park brake. I have looked at Jim Wulfs 66 photo's but it is slightly different as I don't have the speed control system.

Thanks Phil

Phil, I'd need to know if you have A/C, and if you have the safety and convenience panel with power door locks. It matters as to how many vacuum lines there are.

Hi Bob

There are no power locks but I do have AC although it is not connected at the moment. The AC will need to be connected as it is a requirement in this country to have some method of defogging the front windscreen.

thanks Phil

Hi Bob

Am I correct to say the small hose from the vac can goes through the firewall to the AC and the larger hose goes from the can to a PC valve then a T joint. One part of that joint goes of to the firewall and the other to a connector on the manifold and then to the power brake booster?

thanks Phil

Sorry Phil, I thought I was going to send you a couple of links that had good vacuum diagrams, apparently they have all be removed. You should have a 'T' on the intake that has the rear going to the booster and the smaller front side leading to the right shock tower brace. in between there should be a check valve. Near the brace it has a smaller 'T', one side goes to the vacuum can on the right inner fender, the other side to the right lower firewall near the electrical bulkhead connector. This hose will supply the neutral safety switch/parking brake release and the rear flow through vent control. The little line on the can is for A/C and does go through the firewall below the right washer jet, along with a hose that controls the heater water valve. I hope I have it right, the guy that would REALLY know about the 64 is FUZ, I was hoping he'd see this and chime in. I'm going to see a bunch of cars on Sunday, I'll try to get accurate info for you then. Good luck, Bob C

Default Vacuum System

To further amplify on this, go to http://www.tbirdranch.com and go down the left side to the section on Diagrams Index. Click on it and slide down to 1964-1966 heat/ac vacuum diagram. Click on it and there you will find the information you are looking for I would think.

Hi Bob

Thanks, What you wrote is basically what I meant, I just had my valve on the wrong side of the T joint. I should be able to plum that in now. Thanks all.
