Re: I don't get it...

I do volunteer work for a similar forum hosted by a national cancer organization and my observation is that perhaps 10% of the forum members are active participants for various reasons and are much as noted above. Previous postings answered a question, a little shyness to ask or, as Bill mentioned, ...

Repair shop suggestions - Austin / San Antonio areas

Hello all,

I'm moving to a place about midway between Austin and San Antonio (closer to SA) within the next few months and need to connect with a good shop in either or both areas. Any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks in advance.

Brad

Re: Air conditioner box

Thanks Tom. Neither rhe A/C or fan were on, it's just that the ventilation door wouldn't close and was allowing hot air in. It's always had slack in the hot/cold lever such that it won't go fully up to the cold setting. Darrell at WCCC is looking at the pictures of the parts out of the car but (perh...

Re: Air conditioner box

Thanks. The problem occurred without the A/C being on - should the de-icing switch even be engaged in that case?

Re: Air conditioner box

Thanks Tom and Royce. 1) I won't have a chance to look at the car until Monday but we did check the WCCC picture of a complete assembly and didn't see what the tech mentioned. I have a message in to Darryl at WCCC for his comments. 2) What is an icing switch?

Air conditioner box

The A/C box in my 68 with factory air decided to fail and concentrate our famous Houston heat and humidity right on my leg. After getting replacement seals and a used door, the shop now tells me that the box is about 80% in reasonable shape with the rest needing either replacement / refurbishment / ...

Re: Dashboard removal

Thanks Andrew. The main issue is an air inlet door that is letting in lots of south Texas heat and humidity (and probably some engine heat). I just got back from out of town so I don't know what they did but they seemed to be headed in the direction of perhaps not having to remove the dash. I did as...

Dashboard removal

It looks like the dash will need to be taken out to replace the door for the damper air inlet. Other than some oxidized decorative trim there isn't anything obvious that needs any attention. Any suggestions as to things to look for or to go ahead and do while the dash is off? Thanks in advance. Brad
