    Hey fellow Apollos, just picked up a 74-4 door with a 350-2 engine. the previous owner had removed the blower unit on the firewall for some reason. So, right now all I have is the opening and a few loose wires. He also removed the AC unit. Can anyone get me pictures of their firewalls, or any information on the unit, so I know what the unit looks like and what I'm looking for?

    For the sucking part, I'm looking for a diagram of the vacuum hoses, I'm not sure if the previous owner has everything in the right spot. Maybe a Chilton's picture or diagram?

    I highly recommend getting a factory shop manual for 74. Lots of detailed drawings and diagrams. And they are not too expensive.

    From what I’ve heard 69 - 76 X body A/C systems and suitcases are essentially the same. 77 - 79 can be used and will cover the hole but had different controls on dash and more use of cheaper plastic parts. And possibly no POA valve. I did have a partial ‘72 unit/system for years but it finally sold a few years ago.
