SOURCE: Heater Vacuum hose disconnected No front heat and ticking noise

That path begins at the intake manifold which is the only source of vacuum for those controls. In all systems I have seen, there is a bottle or canister under the hood that acts as a reserve source for all vacuum-operated devices since the level of vacuum varies greatly depending on whether the engine is running free or lugging.  Tracing backward might not be fun but is possible.

Is there a check engine light on? Were you able to pull a trouble code from the computer. At this point, it seems like the MAP sensor is at fault, but I want to be sure there are no other codes.

1976 VW bus. What is this hose next to transmission fluid dipstick?

That hose should go to the carburator, it should have ported vacuum, the other way is if this bus has a/c then the hose would go to a switch first and then to the carb, if it does have a/c and the switch is missing then just run to carb with ported vacuum.

When I turn my air conditioner on, the air blows out on the dashboard for the windshield and not from the vents. What can I do??

The blend door actuated by solenoids may not be working correctly causing a/c cool air to come out of the windshield vents, rather than the regular front vents.

1. Set parking brake. Shift automatic transmission to Park or manual transmission to Neutral. With A/C off, start engine and attain normal operating temperature.

2. With ignition OFF, connect an ignition timing light and a calibrated, expanded-scale tachometer.

3. Disconnect 4 " and 10 " Hg (CEC System) vacuum switch assembly wire connector (located at top of valve cover). Disconnect and plug distributor vacuum advance hose.

4. Start engine, increase engine speed to 1600 RPM and check ignition timing. Adjust timing to specification listed on Emission Control Information label (if necessary). Tighten distributor hold-down clamp and recheck ignition timing.

5. Turn engine off and remove timing light and tachometer. Connect No. 1 spark plug lead, if disconnected. Unplug and connect distributor vacuum advance hose. Connect vacuum switch assembly wire connector.

NOTE: If timing light has an adjustable advance control feature, turn control to OFF position.

Timing is set per the emissions tag under hood.

Need vacuum diagram for 1974 vw beetle with 34 pic carb

Depending on your carb, distributor and transmission, you have from zero to two vacuum hoses. If you have an Autostick transmission, there's a vacuum hose running from a port in the intake manifold to the control valve on the left side wall of the engine bay. (Hint: if you've got a car that came with Autostick and that someone's converted to manual transmission, the bracket for the control valve is the perfect place for your coil.) Most people don't have this transmission even if their car came with it--it's only a three-speed and it's hard to find parts for it, so most of those cars have been converted to manual transmission. The other hose you might have is for your distributor. The port is on the left side of the carb, and a hose runs between it and the metal vacuum advance can on the side of the distributor. If you have a 009 distributor or an aftermarket distributor like an MSD you don't have the vacuum advance can; if you have an aftermarket carb like a Weber you don't have the port. probably don't have any vacuum lines on your engine.

if only one vacuum line then? the vacuum line goes from the vacuum advance on the side of the dizzy, to the carburettor, just around the throttle linkage if i recall. hope this helps.
