I know the defroster cycles during different engine load- so which vacuum line did I goof when I did my weber? Or, is there specific wiring for the defroster I coulda goofed?

When you try another position like heater, bi-level or vent dose air come out of same place no matter which position you select? If so then you do have a vacuum problem.

It's your 1965 Chevy Malibu -- right??
The vacuum operated heater control system works in conjunction with a vacuum resivour (sp?) which is the white canister on the shelf behind the pass strut tower. This canister also incorporates a check valve to prevent what you have happening from happening.
Craig is correct as usual, it is a direct intake manifold vacuum to the input side of this canister.
Jim, fine job of post stepping your doing there, replace your blower speed resistor, see Asavage's post on the subject.

And 1,000 thank you's. Perhaps I hooked that sucker up backwards or some other brilliant self defeating error.

You could also have a faulty switch causing this but chances are it is the resistors causing your problem.

I have never seen the canister that you are referring to on a EA81 vehicle but I have seen them on the EA82s. Do you know if they ever did put that canister in EA81s. Also I don't see any mention of it in my FSM

You are correct the EA81's I have had have cable operated control sysytems.
Due to the nature of the problem I guessed it was on an EA82

Runs full blast in defrost off the windsheild vents after having switched vac ports...
Skip, you'l be pleased to see that I've put my ride info in my signature lest I forget that detail again in the future.
