I have owned my 68 for 20 plus years and have always wondered. On most 68's that I have seen --the heater control valve that mounts on the firewall has a single vacuum operated valve. On my car- I have 2 vacuum controlled valves that are hooked together. I speculated that it was a dealer add on for air-conditioning....but have no clue. I have only seen this set up on one other car...and pulled the heater control valve just to hoard the part should I ever need it. Does anyone have an idea why I have this setup in my car?

I'm currently restoring a 69 Torino non-AC Car.

I have a 69 Torino AC parts car; I think it has the valve you're talking about - I don't need any of the AC Stuff, any Power Steering Stuff or any of the Power Disc Brake stuff on this car.

My 428 Car is manual steering, 4-wheel drum brakes and non-AC.

It is however - Tach Dash - Anybody got a Tach Dash Instrument Cluster and under dash wiring harness if it's unique to this setup.

I'll sell, trade, partial trade anything I don't need toward what I need!


AC and non-AC Firewall Compare

yo, I don't need the valve anymore but thanks anyway.
Also as far as a 69 tach setup there is a person on Yuma, Az craigslist thats been trying to sell his gauge/w tach for like a year now. 500.00 seems steep but ya never know if ya call them what might transpire. Happy parts hunting!

This site has Re-pop tach circuit boards and NOS tachs:


You will need the tach cluster itself as well since it has hole for tach body. 

The owner has passed away recently so not sure of the current status of the business.  I bought one a few years back from him but haven't installed the tach in car yet.

The harness is available from Mac's.  I hooked mine up with this to test the tach outside the car and worked.  Hooks up in series with coil wires
