Vacuum leak should have no effect on the heat or heater core
vacuum operate the selection door (like defrost, vent and so on )
very common is low or no heat due to a clogged heater core

have to isolate heater core and flush let me know
and if its the heater vacuum lines that you need let me know
I should have it for you

Thank you for that reply but I have taken the heater hoses off of both sides of the heater core and flushed water each way I did get some junk out of the heater core but I had very good flow of water comeing out also.

More flushing is needed
try to and soak it with a coolant system flush over an hour or so
you have to have a good flow so you can get the heat

I would isolate the heater core hoses from the engine side
block bypass hose in-between
fill heater core with coolant system flush and let it sit
