    Sorry guys, I did not want to have to ask this here, but I cannot find what I need using google. I am looking for photos of the air controls for a heat only car. The controls I have are for an AC car. Below is what I am looking for photos of. More specifically the side that has the mode control. I am going to have to modify the controls to work with an after market AC system and I thought perhaps controls from a heater only car may be easier to do what is needed.

    Thanks

    I should have one readily accessible. I'll take pictures when I get home if they aren't already on here.

    Heater controller on left...A/C controller on right. Notice arm for heater cable and no arm on AC. Also no vacuum going to heater controller and also different fan switch. Heater switch uses 4 wires the AC switch uses 5 wires.

    Also be aware they are two styles controllers, with FAN light and without FAN light.

    Thanks Jeff, that is exactly what I was looking and hoping for. So, now it looks like I need a heater control switch with the FAN light. Anyone have one available?

    That vacuum switch is the old all metal design only found in the 70 model. Hard to find and way more durable than the plastic ones. Can be used in place of the plastic ones but vacuum connector needs to be flipped 180ยบ.

    What I want is the heater only one without the vacuum switch.
