With my fat fingers$stomach, I cannot reach behind center stack to reconnect HVAC elec. or vacuum connectors. How hell did ford do this on assembly line?

They hired a bunch of munchkins!
Trust me, it's not easy for a smaller guy like myself to get under and behind the dash. I usually find it easier to pull the seat(s) out, then wriggle in on my back.
I would think most connections would be done before the complete dash was installed, same as they do today.

I find you need to remove the radio assembly, remove the screws holding the center stack in place, pull/ tilt the center stack away so you can reach the back side of the heater AC controls. May need to disconnect the temperature adjustment cable from the area behind/below the glove box also.
