Missing Hose?

Post by rtram » Wed May 16, 2018 10:16 am

Can someone tell me if there is supposed to be a hose connection between the 2 points in this picture and what the parts are? I've looked in the shop manual but can't seem to find anything.

On the other side of the fan body there's another smaller hose. You can order them both. http://www.parts123.com/parts123/dyndet ... uKeY=AABGY

Paul is correct. They route clean cooling air for the fan motor, picking it up under the dash and exhausting it into the engine compartment. Without them, the fan motor is sucking dirty, oily, not to mention hot, air.

So after feeling around, I can only find the "pipe" for the hose on the one side that you can see in the picture for the double 90. There is no other place for the single 90 to attach. Could this be the wrong blower for a 1966 Landau with factory A/C?
