A/C vacuum actuators

My 1967 Galaxy 500 XL  with factory air needed vac actuators replaced, one under hood and one under dash at glove box. The factory ones were plastic and very expensive. On ebay, I found using part #434855-0015 a "turbo wastegate vacuum actuator for VW  Golf TDI Garrett turbo charger VNT-15" listed for $15.80 each (2/11/2021). Mine cost more than this since I bought about 10 months ago. These are all metal exterior, and small enough for the job. They required custom sheet metal brackets for both. The one inside under dash required a staggered installation to fit. They work just like the originals did once. FYI
