Jump the vacuum to each line. See if all the doors open and close correctly most likely you have 1 of 2 issues. There is a leaking diaphragm at one or a few of the heater box doors or there is not enough engine vacuum and you will have to check the incoming line. Due to age I am pretty confident you have a few failed diaphragms. Let me know if this Helps. Lou.
