Ok, I have just bought a new hose kit from Biscay's classic cars. When I got the car the headlight system was not put in but had all new stuff up front. The actuators are there and work.. and the tank reservoir as well. …and a new switch. My problem is what hose goes were? The hoses are color coded … does anyone know of a chart or diagram to help run these things? … thanks.

Ken welcome to Team Camaro the Tech Info. link on the main screen of Team Camaro has 2 series of links to articles, the new series 2 part has this link to 69 RS vacuum info. that Moderator Dennis made up for us.
It should be very similar to your 68, give it a read and see if you can make it all work.

69 RS hose routing and Vac info.

Ken - the biggest difference I believe is your '68 vacuum tank has two fittings for hoses. the '69 has one and a tee. If you look at the diagram in the tech reference article I think you will be able to see all you have to do is remove the tee and run the black to the tank.

I do need to get off my butt and research the '68 more and do an additional page for it. Some day I guess. [img]graemlins/clonk.gif[/img]

Will work either way (with the T and pluging the extra connection at the tank or running straight to the tank).

The thing to remember is until the reservoir is able to hold a vacuum the actuators won't work anyway.
