Let me look at my pile of parts I took off when I replaced my A/C. Its probably there but I have to go to my storage building and that wont be till the weekend.

Thanks, Bill.

No real hurry, it's just that I realized that I don't have one and I'll need one eventually. As long as I know there's one out there with my name on it, I can check it off my needs list. While you're in your "pile" of stuff, see if you also have the cable that runs from this bracket back to the firewall. I've got a cable but without the bracket, I don't know if it's the correct one.

Thanks,

Ed

Thanks to John H. and Will S. I now have all the parts I need - bracket, cable, etc. I'd also like to throw out a big thank you to a pay it forward pal, Galen S., for giving me two "like brand new" vacuum control diaphrams. He redid his original a/c a couple of years ago using these, then decided to add a Vintage Air unit this past spring. Now if I can just figure out which vacuum line goes to which port. :confused:

I too have been looking for a valve for a long time. If you're not into 400 point restorations, you can use a universal valve. Jim Cannon has written an article on replacing a cable actuated valve with a vacuum actuated valve. The article explains how to swap one into a '63, but you could install one in a '64 by inserting a T into the same vacuum line as Jim did on his '63. Buick did this to the Riviera in '65 so it's not a band-aid fix. The article is in the tech tips section of the ROA's website.

All of the jobbers incorrectly show a vacuum valve but that could be the way to go in the future.

Shhhhh! Like American Express, membership has its privileges. We will contact you via PM IF you'll provide your full name and ROA number so we can compare it to the roster. Otherwise, we take caution to ensure that everything we've done over the past 30 years is available to our members who pay their yearly dues. Not saying that you're not a member, but we're not going to openly post that information. That's also why the username and password are changed with every issue. The best thing to do when you get your latest Riview is to go to the website, enter the new user name and password, then click the box that asks if you want to have your computer remember them.
