  1. Check to see if you wire your on/off switch correctly.
  2. Several things to check: Your Behr AC on/off switch has a wire that runs to the temperature setting knob to the left of the switch. This temperature setting unit has a probe that is/should be inserted into a little opening at the front of your evaporator. Check to see if this is damaged or broken off. Also, there is a black wire coming out of the temperature setting unit that runs back through the firewall and should be connected to the black wire from your compressor. Check to see if this wire is damaged or is connected to the compressor. The last thing to check is to make sure your compressor is grounded properly. Good luck,
  3. I am in. Thanks.
  4. I can only speak for my '72. Do not know the answer to the first question. Yes, the lenses are the same. But, the housings are different. The side marker housings have a lamp socket and wire exit with a rubber boot. The marker housings are solid with rubber gaskets.
  5. The shoes gave it away!
  6. Thanks Stevenc22. I followed the instructions to the letter. One observation and one suggestion: You recommended #6 and #8 flare to o-ring adapters for the evaporator. They should be #6 and #10. #6 and #10 flare fittings are available from a seller on eBay. Makes things a little easier.
  7. Welcome to the forum. There are many friendly and knowledgeable folks here. The search function is your friend. Start with the article below.

    Made these two funky brackets to hold my 12x18 condensor. It just so happened that the width of the two uprights is exactly the 19" required to mount the condensor.
  9. The openings in the back of the tachometer for the two lamps are slightly smaller than the lamp openings for the other gauges. Measure this diameter before selecting your LED.
  10. On my '72, the stalk is on the right hand side. Upward movement indicates left turn.
  11. Don't forget to replace bushings #11 and #14. These two bushings tend to shrink with age and can cause some "play" in the shifter.
  12. Ms Google showed me how 💕🤦🤷🙌💖💋🎂🐱💻🌭🍕🥓🍟🥗🍗🍿🎎🎃🎍🎐🎗 Thanks Ray, I knew you would come through for me 😜

  14. Dumb question. How do I get more emoticons? T.I.A.
