    WTB: Early 02 pedal box, brake booster

    Hey all - Still in need of a pedal box, MC, and booster for my switch from manual to hydraulic clutch. Please send pics and your ask. Thanks,
  3. Mike, thanks. Here's what I see looking at the hub: the male connector is on the left side pointing towards the dash. The female lead fits, tightly, in a gap between the left stalk and the center. I can't see this going another way but it's a tight fit. As for the spring loaded nib on the back of the steering wheel, that's fixed in place. I really can remember how this fits together...
  4. Hi everyone - I'm re-installing the steering wheel on my '68 1600 and....I can't find the pics when I removed it, dang it. 1. where do I thread the horn lead thru -- inside the stalk assemblies or outside? (right or left side?) 2. How does the inner ring with the copper align with the wheel? 3. any other tips? See pictures. Thanks for the help!
  5. Hi - I'm converting and upgrading my '68 1600 mechanical clutch/brake system to hydraulic. Looking for: 02 pedal box brake booster Master cylinder (E21, E30 ok) Front calipers (E21, E30 ok)
  6. Great, thanks. I'll need to get a big lug tool to crimp it. These 3 red wires connect ignition, fuse box to + terminal which is why I need to get it done right. Thanks again!
  7. Yes, thanks. I'm thinking of replacing all three since I have the loom out. What would you say are the gauges? What size lug?
  8. Well, while I'm here, this is what the 3-red wire to battery + looks like on the harness I'm installing. Yikes. The trio should be joined on one ring connector, right?
  9. Yes, indeed, this grey/red wire is an extender and branches off the license plate wires. I still can't see where the female connector is or goes. Thanks for the cleaning/disassembly tips. Onward.
  10. My 68 doesn't have the side markers, etc but the harness is from perhaps a later 1600 that did, which is why I didn't recognize it. I assume I'll leave it disconnected. I was wondering if these junction blocks can be pulled apart to clean. Each wire appears to have a barb that holds in the block. There are two other such blocks in my car: a 3-way in the engine and a 5 way under the dash. I'm in Chicago, btw. Thanks for the help!
  11. Hey all - I'm replacing wiring in my 1600 and the new (old) loom has a few connectors like the one pictured. This one is in the trunk and I don't know what connects to it. What are these connectors used for? Any reason to disconnect them ( and if so, how?) Thanks

    1602 HEATER CORE

    Hi - I'm looking for a replacement heater box, core, and fan. Let me know if you can help.I have a '68 1600. Thanks!
  13. Hi all - The engine from my '68 1600 is out while the engine area is repaired of some rust and painted. I'm still learning abut this car since I bought it late last year; engine runs but the car hasn't been road-worthy (brakes, etc). The shop owner will let me use his shop to clean up the engine. He suggested I can use his sand blaster on some of the brackets and other parts while they're easy to get to. This is new to me: what would you do? Which parts should/could be cleaned safely. And as for sand blasting...? All suggestions welcome. Thanks!
  14. Very helpful. Thank you.
