Vacuum tube wiring

I have a couple of old vacuum tubes that I would like to light up for my grandchildren on my train layout. I also have a Chicago Transit Authority control panel with the throttle for one of there older trains that I would also like to light up.

Where can I find wiring diagrams so I can wire them up to light? I don't want any outputs from the tubes or from the control panel so they kids won't get hurt!

Thank you,

Ed Goldin

What you need to do is find the model number which should be on the vacuum tube somewhere, then web search for "<model number> datasheet" without quotes, and look for the filament pins and the filament voltage, wiring that as it says and you'll be good.

The stereo pin layout can be obtained from the car dealership, also a repair manual should have the stereo wiring harness layout in it , the stereo harness adapter for installing non oem stereo, found at the local auto parts store will come with the wiring layout, wires are color coded too, sometimes the stereo harness or stereo harness adapter will have small writing on the wires itself, showing you what that wire is for, and where it should connect.

Basically it comes down to, obtaining the stereo wiring layout, read the description on the wires, and properly connect them together, then solder the wires or crimp them, I like to solder mine with soldering wire for electronics, and put shrink tubes to protect the wires, put the shrink tubes on the wires before soldering together, and ensure the shrink tube is the proper size awg wire gauge.

You will also need, aftermarket face adapter kit and antenna adapter, if installing aftermarket stereo.

Hope this helps and enjoy the stereo :)

I cannot remove the tubing to replace the harness wires from a Kenmore canister vacuum.


One wire of the old harness is connected to the hose and another wire is connected to the switch. Just pull wires and female plug that is attached to the plastic tube pray both side with flat scewdriver

Have a Kirby Heritage II vacuum. Need to replace a split fill tube. How do I remove the outer cloth bag from the mini-emptor, and then how do I take off the old/attach a new fill tube?


There is no need to remove the outer bag. The fill tube can be removed by cutting it off near the bottom and pulling on the support wire to unwind it from the neck on the mini-emptor. I usually hose down the bag and slosh it around in my laundry sink to clean it. After it dries, the new fill tube can be screwed onto the mini-emptor. You can wet the bottom of the tube with plain water to make it go on more easily. If you screw it on firmly, there is no need for cable ties at the bottom. Re-attach the top adaptor ( bag holder ), and secure it with cable ties.

How do i change the fill tube


Cut the old fill tube from the lower housing and remove the top adapter from the old tube. Clean the bag and housing to be sure the spout the tube attaches to is clean. Be certain to use the fill tube used in the Generation 3 and 4 models which has a wire in it. Wet the lower few inches of the tube and screw it fully onto it's base in the lower housing. The upper adapter can be attached with cable ties.

I recently took apart the climate control module on my 1985 Winnebago motor home (GMC chasis & drive train). I determined that the reason I was not getting heat or A/C was because the vacuum tubes...


The exact connection of vacuum tubes in 1985 Winnebago motor home 
The vacuum lines attach to the pushbutton assy. through a molded rubber thing that has probably disintegrated and the vacuum lines are lying loose. Here's how to reconnect them.
Notice a group of seven nipples. This is where the vacuum lines attach. I numbered the nipples in the text drawing below. NOTE: This is the layout as viewed from the front of the coach. Use pieces of rubber tubing to take the place of the old molded thingy and connect the lines to the numbered nipples as described below.

5 6 7

Plug up nipples 1, 2, and 5.You can use  small nails that fit snugly into the holes.
Connect the black line (vacuum source) to nipple 6.
Connect the white line (rearward-pointing outlets) to nipple 4.
Connect the red line (downward-pointing outlets) to nipple 7.
Connect the blue line (heater) to nipple 3.
Check out.Thanks.
Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

My dyson dc25 pipe has lost suction..is something stuck in the pipe?


We had the exact same issue. Turns out my wife had inadvertantly sucked up a magnet that was the same size ans the tube. Hold the tube up to a light source. If you cannot see any light, there is something stuck in it. To dislodge the item, stretch out a wire hanger and run it through the tube. It should lislodge the item. Dyson's are great but are very tempermental!

Get engine air filter out and install new.


Step 1 Unfasten wire harness to MAF (massive air flow) sensor located on top of the black tube leading from the air box to the plenum.
  • Step 2 Unplug the vacuum line located on top of the black tube. This simply pops in and out so you might need to be forceful, but apply common sense since it's a plastic vacuum line.
  • Step 3 Loosen band clamp with the screw driver at the top of the black tube that is attached to the aluminum air chamber that run to the plenum. Also, loosen the other band clamp located at the bottom of the tube closest to the air box. The idea is to remove this tube with the MAF sensor intact in between. Do not remove the band clamps, simply loosen them enough to wiggle off the tube and move it out of the way.
  • Step 4 Unclip both fasteners at the top of the air box and pull out and up to remove air box cover. Remove old air filtermag-glass_10x10.gif and if there's a good deal of dust and debris inside the air box, you could wipe it out with a rag or even vacuum it out with a shop vacuum.
  • Step 5 Insert new filter and replace air box cover. Make sure the retaining tabs are locked in at the bottom correctly. Refasten top locking clips to air box cover.
  • Step 6 Reinstall air tube making sure to replace top part back on correctly to aluminum air chamber. Not properly reinstalling this air tube will result in the computer of the car throwing a check engine code. On the bottom of the black air tube is a small tab and if tube is replaced properly should line up in a notch molded into the air box cover. Tighten band clamps with screw driver and reconnect wire harness and plug plastic vacuum line back in.

    Check the connection of the ground. Bad connection of ground usually create this problem.
    Especially the ground connection between the crt board and the wire who surround the picture tube. Let me know what you will get after this.
