Heater control valve vacuum switch Javelin
06/08/12 at 01:37:28
 
On my 73 Javelin with factory air, the vacuum switch that opens the heater control valve is broken. The switch is behind the passenger side dash panel. This vacuum switch is an on and off type that is operated by a cable in the heater control panel on the dash. Is this vacuum switch available, or is there a fix using other than factory parts?

I recently bought an NOS switch from Blazers. It's pricey but available. Someone may have a good used one.

Do you have a manufacturer name or part number?

Just looked up the slip, wasn't as bad as I remembered. Not cheap, but that comes with genuine NOS AMC.

Is this the part? I found them in Mustang/cougar parts catalogs for about $35.00. Was the price comparable to the one you bought?

Thanks
