Re: Thoughts on A/C system

I found where that similar number comes up. WCC has it stated on their web page for core compressors. I also found it on a Mustang page for being used on Shelbys only it ends in A2. Must be some chart/literature somewhere on part numbers? Did a lot of reading on here to on different posts looking fo...

Re: Thoughts on A/C system

Just went out and looked, so I thought I would add that the Tecumseh compressor I have has a number on it of C7AA2875-A1 model HG1000 So would that be a pump that's not produced until 1967, or produced in 66 and into 67 for a 67 model year?

Re: Thoughts on A/C system

Canted, My goal is to keep it for the most part original looking, but not concourse. Still though I would maybe consider the Summit kit if I didn't already have the condenser and dryer that I bought from WCCC. Dennis, I like your thinking ;) So when your saying After checking it out I realized the c...

Re: Thoughts on A/C system

Andy, I asked CAA if they offer a kit for rebuild and they said no. That's not to say one can't be had somewhere. I have some familiarity with taking hydraulic pumps apart and knowing what's good and bad by looks, so it may be doable for me. I think the only way to test is perhaps hook it up to a sy...

Thoughts on A/C system

Just wanting to get some input on completing my a/c system in my S-code. It was robbed of most everything when I got it except the evaporator under the dash. The expansion valve was still attached. The service valves were in boxes of parts, but that's about it. Over the years I acquired a Tecumseh c...

Re: GTE Project

More mystery? I just want to know if it is indeed 1 of 1. It would be a long road back, and it wouldn't ever quite be right again.

Re: 390 running hot...

Water pump could be dead. Also not out of the possibility that the new thermostat is not functioning. I have had that happen as well. I now always test my thermostats new out of the box in a small boiling pan of water first to make sure they open.

Re: GTE Project

https://www.conceptcarz.com/profile/22472,7962/1968-Mercury-Cougar.aspx So is the burnt out car the same one in this article? It appears to be. Is the article incorrect then that this is the only GTE built in Onyx with a 427 and saddle interior, so 1 of 1? The Marti posted says either 15 or 16 with ...

Re: Ebay XR7G or not?

I wouldn't mind seeing it either. So back to my sunroof question in Gs'. If they didn't all come with one, do we know how many didn't, and does it make one without one more or less valuable? Like if there were only a couple made or something? Hypothetically speaking then if a person were to buy a G ...

Re: Reproduction dash pad defect??

Yikes, that's ugly. I would hope they would stand behind it, but still a pain to change. Not really fixable either with the outer layer torn apart like that. If the studs just broke out of the foam backing probably doable.
