  1. I came upon this post while searching. I removed the driver door regulator yesterday, and I am missing the spring. All pins, even the center one, looks okay. The old one wasn’t sitting inside the door. The window works as is, but is their a source for the spring?
  2. Chargin: the condenser came from coldhose.com in Ocala, FL.
  3. Changed front main seal. The one in there was hard as a rock and leaking. Crumbled when I pulled it out. Installed modern underhood AC components. And cleaned. Always more underbody cleaning to do.
  4. Finished more today. Belt and original tensioner are installed. Condenser and fan combo are installed. Dryer is installed. I had two screw holes in my core support for the dryer, and the cold hose dryer bracket lined up perfectly with the existing holes. I have started mocking up hoses, so I'll pull out the crimper and get them done today.
  5. Thanks Vision, I hadn't researched yet why they didn't show. I'll update the post. BB - I am mainly doing this because I couldn't find everything I wanted to know from searching. I am looking forward to some cold air!
  6. I thought I would chronicle the installation of modern under-hood components in my 74 Tii. I have had the car about a two weeks now, and it came with all Behr original components installed but not working. I have converted every other classic car I have had with modern compressor, evaporator, and R134, so I have a decent amount of experience. I bought the following from coldhose, which is about 2 hrs from my house: Sanden SD7H15 compressor ($235) York to Sanden compressor adapter ($40) Hose and dryer kit, including switch ($100) 10X18 condenser and brackets($62) #6 and #10 flare to o-ring adapters The Sanden fits perfectly with the adapter. I need slightly longer bolts for my final installation, but the adapter just bolts to the original compressor bracket. To get the compressor aligned with the tii pulley, I needed to run the bolt through the adapter plate, then add a nut, then put the compressor through. This pushed it back 1/4". After temporarily unbolting the horn, the condenser goes in to the hole, and fit perfectly between the uprights. I made two simple brackets utilizing the holes for the horn on each side to hold the condenser. It is very solid when attached. Cold hose sells some cheap pusher fans, but I have always had the best luck with spal, so I bought a 10" pusher fan. Made a simple sheet metal bracket for the bottom holes. That is it for today. I need to change the front main seal before I install the compressor for the final time and figure out belt length. More tomorrow.
  7. I am looking for more experiences with condenser sizes. I was going to try a 10X18, mainly because I haven't found anything smaller listed online. (Anyone have a link for the 9X12?) Any successful installs out there of a 10X18?
  8. Thanks Edgar. I saw that post, but it is for an older set of lights, not the new ones available from Dapper.
  9. Looking for fitment advice on dapper lighting headlights. Looking at either the OE7 or LED SEVEN. I have installed them in classic domestic cars before, and the HID ones were huge and required bucket modifications. Thank you. 74Tii
