    wouldn't signal isolate, I'm considering just for flyback protection. I realize most people don't consider that but the spikes are kind of nasty, and I know my Towncar has problems with the flyback...

    would love to find a cheap source for internally-suppressed relays. Make all of this a non-issue.

    AC is hot side switching, so you can't share a relay with a ground side switched source.

    Generally diodes are a good idea for isolation. Further good idea are diodes across the relays for...

    unless maybe the seperate piece was a way to make up for sloppy manufacturing, basically letting the floppy bit self-center in the seat ? That seems unlikely though.

    Ah, so its not the tapered face of the brass thing that does the sealing? I guess that makes sense that its a smaller doo-dad. We aren't talking a lot of volume here.

    I know 86VickyLX has done evap cores before, but I don't know how new. Pretty sure they do come out from the engine bay side though.

    A good rust-free car is a nice thing to have. After all the rust headaches from the Towncar and the black Mark VII not-rusty became a condition of buying things. The white Mark VII and the...

    I'm not sure what function that little plunger bit would serve, other than to stop vacuum from leaking through the open end of that brass piece. Seems to me you could seal that up with RTV or...

    Its not supposed to have stupid high idle, there is a high speed screw that you can use to adjust how high it is, but exactly what conditions that is set under I'm not sure. If its not on the...

    thats usually the only thing that goes. I've had my hands in one of those units before and there isn't exactly much that is user-serviceable inside. The lamps are even soldered in. Beyond the...

    I know some of the EATC units had an issue with a relay on the board that powers the AC compressor. The solder would crack and it wouldn't feed power out. Apparently they were fixable if you open...

    The 3 puck clutch is later and many replacements are that style. The older original style looks like the one on Kishy's car. Both work fine, I have swapped from one to the other with no fuss. The...

    The worn one on my Mark VII was caused by the rubber bushing in the middle of the clutch face wearing out. That one is a stupid design, instead of the usual metal spring, it uses the rubber as the...

    +1 on what Kishy said. Figure out if its a system or a blend door problem. Both need to work correctly or no cold air.

    It works basically the same as everything else, the one hitch in the...

    flipping the air cleaner lid won't bother it. Won't do anything, but it won't make it run worse either. Might make a small bit of extra noise.

    Dual exhaust will help slightly, but possibly not...

    thats usually the air doors are broken off the hinge. One end of it moves, the other flops around so it never actually seals. Had that issue on my Towncar, used some teeny hinges to fix the doors. ...

    thats vacuum loss symptoms. Seems like the temperature shifts before where the air comes out does but with no vacuum it defaults to hot defrost.

    colder t-stats don't really fix hot running problems. They only set the minimum temp the engine can operate at. Max temp is just a function of how much heat the radiator can get rid of vs how much...

    Mechanical gauges work on pressure, so adding heat in along the tube could skew the results. Its a copper tube, and it can conduct heat into the system which makes it expand more and read higher.
