    Does anyone have any, or know where I can get, the vacuum solenoids for the heat/defrost duct on a 1964 Jeep CJ5? Attached is a pic. Shipping to zip 13811.

    Good luck on those as I know for years I tried to source them but came up empty handed.............I resorted to cannibalizing other heater units at wrecking yards just for those parts on the hope they still worked.....It seems to me that years ago some Jeep guys finally figured out they could find similar vacuum pods and modify the brackets to make them work in those old heaters......unfortunately I don't remember any part numbers.

    Do a search on eBay for Vacuum Diaphragm GM Heater:

    You'll likely find some that are identical to the vacuum diaphragms used on CJs, as they were also used on GM's during the 1950's - 70's.

    Not sure if this is the exact correct one, but they were made by Delco. Maybe you could get this to work even if it isn't perfect. I was going to buy it, but I decided I will NEVER use the heater/defroster anyway, so I am not going for it.

    Not sure the original "placebo heater" is worth such heroic measures. The Mojave heater from Summit seems like a much better solution, especially at 13811.

    How do these actuators connect to the heater-fan box? Threaded?? By brackets? Can the connecting of a new replacement be done while lying on one's back, head and arms stuffed under the dash, or does the box have to come out for bench work installation?

    The box has to come out. You might be able to get to it in place but in my case I found it better to remove it.
