    Hello, I recently bought my first El Camino (1987) it was originally a v6 but it has been swapped to a 305.

    So it's one fix at a time, and now that the center dash plate has been removed to replace the lighter ( kept blowing the fuses ), I decided to take a look at the switch for the heater/air. I'm only getting air from the vents and floor, not the dash vents. That said, the comments I've gotten...
