    I once bought an Evaporator Core for a job I was replacing the heater core in a TC. I chose not to use it due to being a poor fit. I hope you can find something that is a better fit.4EAC4CBA-44FC-4413-8984-D3D81BFDD79D.jpeg.8c5ce1eddf7dbb6a04bae5ecf18ff2e7.jpeg3FE458B7-1D5C-4C7A-9C4A-5ECCF8612BE4.jpeg.e4f3f06c535df6fd5ed65b406b65ef5c.jpeg662C26DA-F9DC-4325-8615-151D972BED1E.jpeg.804d4683e59f28f44a1767af1c2c69de.jpeg

    thanks for the pics, Hemi! I'll look out for the correct core!

  2. damn...I knew it...I knew it would happen again...even before I bought it...and I should have read some posts about it...

    just as my new TC is completed and the AC is better than new....the heater core tells me, it will fail very soon.

    I did the job on my 90 white/black TC and it took me 3 days of 12 hours of work each day. I will not get to it right away since I just got the AC going...here's the question..since the AC would have to be disconnected anyway, would you advise to replace the evaporator core as well? I think so.....fix both and forget them forever.....I hate to even think about it...

  3. OK....zero leads...so I decided to remove the Rack and plug the holes with the smallest Rubber Stem Bumpers available...

    if anyone has a Trunk Lid for sale...in white...with no rust...let me know ( yeah, I know ..ebay...but they are overpriced and they avoid answering questions...)

    I guess with shipping that's not bad. Anymore shipping SUCKS!!

    they charged 20 to ship it all back. not too bad at all!...the good thing is; all the AC components are now new ( except for the unit next to the heater core and the actual compressor) and will perform like new! and no need to worry about 30 year old hoses...

    You almost have to strip the interior. Seats come out. Best if center console comes out. Door sill trim. Stainless door threshold trim. Interior side trim (at least loose to get to the one mounting screw), then there's screws in the top well and inside the compartment itself. Once you get them all loose...it comes out. There will probably be spacers on the mounts that go to the top well, just be aware. Oh, don't forget the wires for the light and switch as well as the pull cables for the tonneau latches on both sides.

    Thanks Reaper!...right now, the TC is done..but if I'll get my hands on black interior carpet, its a go!

    How much did it run you?

    I send in high and low side, all together a total of 4, eliminating one canister, custom fitting & welding, all other lines also required new barbs welded on. I asked them to relocate the connections and make them R134 native...all in all, including shipping:$342

    OK...I FINALLY got a working combination with the LEDs! It took a bit of fiddling, trying different combinations of flashers, but I got a combination that works! 


    So, at least for my '89, leave the stock silver one in place on the fuse block and use the one that shelbyone suggested above in place of the yellow flasher that is tucked up under the dash. I tied the ground in with the common ground down by the driver's left foot. It works as advertised! I do like the way the LED bulbs light up the housing. It has a much more even "warmth" to it and of course it is instant. 


    That makes the last things to fix on the car are the A/C lines and the transmission (3/4 synchro is SHOT, but it can still drive fine...spare will be going in). 


    This passed Friday I cruised home, top down, Pandora playing and the map application running through Blue Tooth...it was beautiful!


    I got an invitation to a local car club that has 2 TC's in it. One is a red '91 owned by Bill Sheffer, whom I have tried to reach out to, and I am unsure of the other. I can't make their monthly meet up in October due to work unfortunately. There's a show this coming weekend I am going to try to go to as well. We shall see!

    that just sounds wonderful! glad you got it all done! we should meet up!

  8. update; as of today, the TC project is DONE..40 days of work went into it; 8 to 12 hours a day. of course, on the way to the shop today, both windshield wipers crapped out on me..in the rain...so instead of enjoying the TC, I had to to the linkage bushings...FUN.

    picked up the car later today and was pleased with the job they performed. They refilled the AC with R134 and my brandnew AC components work like a charm and its damn cold...when I drove off, I smiled all the way home...the Magnaflow muffler sounds absolutely great! not too loud, not annoying, just right  and it should have sounded like that for the last 30 years. Now, its all cosmetic stuff from here on...everything else is new, replaced, redone.

    in case a TC owner wants the same great service I received today:

    looks like this is an interchangable part:  https://www.google.com/shopping/product/12233546213484011931?client=safari&q=3849784+condenser+switch&prds=eto:1577123408043167548_0;11779056534168087816_0;3704868341308678814_0&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwj28-H2q4LzAhVgTDABHfYcAmIQ9pwGCAU


    checked it out today..the plug fits but the diameter does not..

  10. Hey Fellas!

    received my entire refurbished AC Hose today...done by Cold Hose in FL....

    could not wait to re install...high line first...then low line...just to realize: they "erased" my Condensor fan control switch!!! its gone!...damn...

    never asked them to remove it...so here's the question; would it work without the switch?( UH, NO) 

    otherwise, they did a good job...I am going to make it snow in the TC
