    Spal fan wiring plug

    It's called a Spal FR-PT jumper harness. A bit expensive for what you get but it works perfectly. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005JVPHR6/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Speedometer needle source?

    Does anyone know if the needle from the tach is interchangeable?

    Speedometer needle source?

    That's very generous of you but unfortunately for me, mine is the later style. Last pic I took before I wrecked it. :(
  4. So I brilliantly decided to open up and refresh the gauge cluster in my '72, which was perfectly functional but cosmetically challenged. Unfortunately for me, the speedometer needle was super-brittle and I ended up breaking it into about 4 pieces. I looked around for a replacement but it seems like the only option is to scavenge one from another cluster and spending $150ish for a single needle seems excessive. I really don't need to have my speedometer rebuilt, either as it was working fine before my clumsy ass got ahold of it. 🤬

    Pilot Bearing Woes

    I'm going to send him the bearing I posted above so he can get moving again. FWIW, the part number on the FAG bearing itself is 310-4462A and the box has a secondary number of (B) 9303.

    Well what's interesting is that when you look up the specs of the 65446 bearing (the number on yours), its diameter is 24mm. So I don't know if that means that someone mistakenly thought the 65446 was equivalent to 11-21-1-276-551 or if the FAG 11-21-1-276-551 I received is incorrect. Based on what you're saying, I would guess the former.

    I'm 99% sure I still have the FAG bearing. It's yours for the cost of shipping if you want it.

    Well there's your problem. you can see the 11-21-1-276-551 I bought has an OD of 21mm!

    I order the FAG bearing pictured above thinking it was correct for my car but was far too small. I needed a bearing with a 32mm O.D., which turned out to be a SKF 6201-2RSJ. So definitely not what you need, but just explaining how I erroneously ended up with the 11-21-1-276-551.

    Right, I was just suggesting that perhaps check the OD of the bearings you received to see if it matches the FAG bearing. Perhaps a manufacturing defect or variance is the cause.

    I ordered one when I was doing the 5-speed conversion on my car but it turned out I needed the larger diameter one. Don't know if this helps, but here is the measurement I took of the FAG bearing with the same part number.

    What did you do to your 2002 today !

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it was AutoCraft Body and Paint.

    A/C help! Please :(

    I only managed to get about 1.5 cans into my system. The weather was not particularly warm on the day I did it so I will recheck it when it warms up. It still cranked out 33 degree air and needed to cycle the compressor on and off even on the coldest setting.

    You must be clairvoyant! I was actually planning to do that very thing. The bright finish was all I had lying around.

    Partial long console

    Partial long console. Removed from my '72. Missing the ash tray section and shift surround. Both side panels seem to be cracked inside of the vinyl covering but didn't affect anything when it was installed in my car. Not perfect but usable. $100 plus shipping.
