I could describe how my 68 is hooked up for you but I don't have access to a scanner and I believe the 69 is routed a little differently. The 69 has a 1 in 2 out check valve whereas my 68 has a 1 in 1 out. The 69 might have different connections on the reservoir too. Not sure about that one. Let me know if you want it described.

Thanks for all the responces. I looked at it more today and found the problem. The switching valve looked to be new, and I guess it was. I could not get vacuum out either side to the open/close ports. I took the valve off so I could look it over and the center and top holes where the hoses go had plastic over them (at the bottom) where no vacuum could get through. I drilled through holding the valve so stuff could fall out, cleaned things up, and it works now.
After just a few minutes of trial and error I got them working. Yes this car has the one in two out check valve, and I did have to switch the hoses to get the open/close correct.

I need one of those manuals. Is that the Fischer Body manuals I've been reading about elsewhere or are there mone than one kind? I have the GM Chassis Service and Chassis Oberhaul manuals for a 68.
I made some diagrams and sent copies to a few people and helped them fix their problems. I also sent Al an e-mail asking if he would be interested in posting them in the tech section like all the other helpful information but never got a reply back.
Makes no difference to me but this is a frequent topic and would save a lot of people some time.
