Call me a redneck, but I'm going to take the top 1/2 remains of the "football" with the nipples, & try to glue it to a plastic coffee can, and then mount it under the hood with "zippy ties". Can't hurt, and if it doesn't work, no foul.

All it has to be is air tight. Heck, some guys have gotten away with removing the thing and plugging the lines. Not recommended though.
Jeep on!

It seemed to work...it began to colapse a little indicating that there was vacume in it, but still no heat on the floor. Maybe there is another problem???

There is the actual valves/actuators under the dash that open the flap that changes where the air flows. Sometimes these go bad or the arms get rusty and won't allow it to move. You'll see them on the drivers side of the heater box. With the heat on try and move them manually.

Thanx guys for all the help. A buddy gave me a "football" and I rednecked it in. Now there is heat anywhere I want it a couple of pics....

That's a better location than behind the bumper.

Now your ready for next winter.
