I think www.autozone.com has them for free.
I remember the vac system on the E4MC carbs . They were like a chinese jigsaw puzzle. good luck

The library as someone suggested may have a motors manual you can check out or copy the page so you dont have to worry about greasin the pages or returning the book 4 years late and paying a fine.
Try an emission motors manual if they have one. If not you may have to go to autozone to get them to print it off for you.
Also your local buick dealer will probably have it. Talk to a service manager he might be kind enough to oblige.

Hook a hose to manifold vacuum and then to a one way check valve then put A Tee in line . hook one to a vacuum storage canister and the other to the feed to the HVAC control. There are 2 hoses I know. One of them comes from the HVAC controller to the hot water control valve for the olds motor.The other one is the supply for the control.Try it one way and check for dash vent and defrost and foot vent etc. If it doesnt work switch the hose and check again.

one is for full time intake manifold vacuum source to run the HVAC control panel.

when you have it right you will be able to hear positions change via vacuum sounds noises in the heater boxes with engine running/idling, unless the control assmebly is broken or leaking vacuum badly





the other is for flow valve in heater core hose

pretty easy simple

the latter one you dont need, ignore it, plug it with a small screw

do away with the valve in the hose

done.
