Default heat from dash vents
Im new here lol but I just fixed my heater in my 87 d100 about 2 weeks ago, and realized I didnt have a vaccuum hose to work the vents out of the dash. I can set it to defrost or heat or even vent, but all I get is heat out below the windshield. How would I go about getting my dash vents operatable? (if thats even a word lol)

need the vacuum hose. the blend doors are vacuum operated, and if the hose leaks, or the vac can fails, the blend doors default to the defrost (base of windshield) position. this is for safety reasons...defrost the windshield when its cold out so you can see.
