Anybody have a Vacuum diagram ??

Ok..I have had the car a week and a half and just figured out I do have a central locking system that does not work. I was looking for a locking gas cap but now I don't need one I just need to repair the vacuum system . I have a 64 Lincoln Continental with a really simple vacuum system but something tells me this will be more difficult to trace and repair. So does anyone have a diagram or a link to one I can see ??

Central locking system diagrams

Hey Dave, congrats on your new toy. Now the fun starts. Sent you some "PDF" files to your email off my Mercedes CD today. Hope they go thru and they'll help in your repair. Just incase someone had "updated/added" remote alarm and door locking system (like mine) You may be in for a real brain twister! Good luck Dave

Thanks for the files..They look like a place to start. Does anyone know where the vacuum reservoir is located ?? From my past experience with others it should be a round black ball but I can't find it. I also repaired my odo tonight I'm getting my list down to just a few things.

vacuum reservoir

Mine is located inside the LF fender, behind the wheel, buried between the inside kick panel and the fender itself. I think some cars may also have them on the right side of the vehicle. Not 100% sure.
