  1. Does anyone know what happened to the 2000C and CS? I'd be interested in knowing what they went for.
  2. I could loosen the cap but there is not enough clearance to remove it with the motor in situ. So I drilled it and filled it with TriFlow. I. Can’t see the brush holders so I can’t tell if that is a problem thx

  4. I'll drill it this afternoon and give it a try. I haven't tried electronics cleaner yet - so I'll do that as well. Many thanks - I'll update if I have any luck.
  5. Marvel Mystery Oli - I hadn't thought of that. If the tri flow doesn't cut it, it will be next on my list. Thanks
  6. I saw your technique earlier! I found some 50" long nozzle straws that work well - but I haven't heated and bent them yet so I'll try it.
  7. I'm trying to get the blower motor on my '74 Tii with Behr AC to spin. I tried to get SCR in CT to fix it, but Nate there was almost certain that it would work if it was lubricated and I don't think it is something they are keen to do. Below are some specifics of what I have done or tried so far... I am getting about 12v to the motor terminals this goes to close to 0 when I turn the fan switch to off likewise the voltage goes to about 0 when I have the fan switch on and turn the AC on the fan will spin (stiffly) when I move it with a screw driver I sprayed Tri-Flow in the bottom bushing as best I could with a long, bent spray can nozzle extension I loosened the small plastic upper bushing cover and tried to get the nozzle pointed under it and gave it a good spray, I could not totally move the cover out of the way because it is too close to the outer plastic cage Before I resign myself to trying to move the AC evaporator out of the way enough to pull the heater box is there anything else I might try - hitting it with a hammer, heating it with a blowtorch, rubbing a monkey paw? I am thinking I could drill a hole in the little plastic cover and then soak it good that way, and then using some sealant to cover it again. But I am afraid it will be futile since I know the fan is not seized. Any advice is appreciated!
  8. My coil has been getting very hot and the car misses. Any recommendations for the best replacement coil? thanks

    That is my plan - I'll eventually have it put back to Fjord. The white is ok, but no contest when it comes to Fjord Metallic...

    I'm a little late but here are a couple more...
  11. I can say it is rock solid from all indications thus far. I have some things to sort out yet like the blower motor and the drivers seat is ripped and worn, and general drivability stuff. The guy Rick sold it to in Texas put AC in it immediately, it works great but evidently they did it without checking the blower motor! I just finished refreshing the Shifter snd it is a joy to drive now. The paint is still good for the most part. Rick told me he got that way in the early 80’s so I assume the Fjord metallic failed Quickly and they just went to white. I want to get an estimate on getting it back to blue, but sticker shock may settle that question for me. I talked (email) to Rick about the wheels - the guy I got it from removed whatever he could so I didn’t get them, the cover, or coco mats with it ( though the cover and mats were in the pre purchase photos !) I’d like to get the correct alloys, but those are very hard to find! Anyway, I guess you can tell I like this car! It is really helping weather the pandemic, as I get to tinker with some things and drive it often!
  12. Yes Mike, I think so- your friend Is Rick, correct? I emailed him prior to buying the car and he was very helpful and made me more confident in my first long distance purchase.
  13. Thanks - I'm familiar with the "Oregon" smoke test - I utilized in my old '02 that I drive in college, but I need to Google Toby's version. I need to check the timing and inspect the distributor. Good excuse to upgrade to a modern timing light and I may put in one of those fancy electronic ignitions with blue tooth and ApplePay...
  14. I have AC in my '74 2002tii that was put in just prior to my buying last year, and works pretty well considering. It is a Behr unit and has an modern (Sanden?) compressor. My problem is that it really seems to drag on the engine, when I come to a stop light the engine will sometimes die, and on accelerating from lower RPMs it will miss a lot - I have to get the RPMs up to keep power. The car generally runs very strong with the AC off, occasionally I have some missing/rough running when lugging the engine. Any ideas of how I might diagnose/fix the problem? I am tempted to bump the idle up, but I think that will just cover up the root cause. Thanks
