62 Hard Top AC Vacuum Leak

Post by Kiwi-Bird » Sat Sep 15, 2018 3:24 am

Hi
I have a vacuum leak on the vacuum hose coming from the vac tank and going through the firewall
My Electrical Assembly Manual doesn't have a "sheet 3" of the air con & heater accessory instructions
Does anyone have a scan of the page that will help me trace it or any tips to help save my sanity and knuckle skin

Thanks

Hello Kiwi, maybe this will help. It is a scan from a page of the 61 Elec Assy Manual that appears to show the vacuum lines under the dash for the AC and heater. I assume 61 and 62 are similar.

I will send the file by email if you would prefer. Best of luck.

You may be able to gain access through the speaker grill from the top.
