Sorry to continue taking this off topic, but what was involved in the conversion to manual? My car is an '87.

I don't currently have heat due to the lack of heater boxes on my headers. I would like to ditch some of this BS that the factory tried to modernize. Rather than ditch it all, I'd like to have some sort of manual controls...just in case.

I was wondering what that "inverted" rubber joystick was up there by the rear view mirror! I thought It had something to do w/Temp-Sensing. Either that, or a microphone for wireless phone system [1979-vintage]! Ha!!

I'm going to raise the car and see if the boxes are closing 100%. Maybe one is staying open, BECAUSE - I'm getting hot air out of the LEFT defrost duct and not the right one...??? Maybe start by looking at the left one...

In my case it was easy because I have the Hargett shifter. It exposes the lever to the heater cable.

You can use an earlier handbrake with the heater control built in. My 81 SC had the auto heat with the lever. See the attached picture. This hanbrake with the correct cover will do it.

They need to stay in the open postion to let the heat out. Closing the heater box vents allows the hot air to flow into the passenger cabin. Check for the small spring on each that keeps them open.

The left heater box's cable mechanism was malfunctioning. I repaired the cable and now, NO MORE HEAT ON MY FEET!!

I'm all fixed up on the cabin heat. Now, I need to focus on the engine heat... See my other post...
