^^^ It's the seat belt chime relay. The wiring diagram colors matches the wires to the connector exactly. Thanks for just the tip. It gave me a place to start looking.

79 #610 Winter Projects. Advise Needed

The A/C "frosty balls" kit arrived today. The suspension is supposed to be delivered tomorrow. The concrete footings will be at 28 day full cure Friday. But I got bored and tore into the engine of my Mustang Saturday to change the head gaskets and lower the compression. I should finish the Mustang this weekend and get the lift finished. We'll see. I'm a lot slower these days. I hope to start on the car next week.

Did you go with the Retroair gear (I see a label that says "classic auto air" - never heard of that)?

Guess you'll be using the "shrinkage" excuse now (no, I don't use that, ya' bisch!!!)!

^^^ It's from Retro Air. I think the owner sold the business to Classic Auto Air. They have a new website and the paypal wasn't set up properly. I placed my order and after a week called because there was no shipment info sent to me yet. The order went to someone's email that does not work there anymore. I thought is was weird a new website order would go to an ex employee.

I just checked and Classic Auto Air has Retro Air's address in TexAss added to their website as a second location. But there are no Porsche kits on the Classic Air website.

Interesting about Retroair changing hands and that Paypal deal, Deez. Yep the "former" Retroair was only about 20 miles from me, so was looking forward to spending money with them, way back when, but the owner told me that he would only sell me kits, not individual components (which I thought very weird to turn away money), and I already had a bunch of upgrades running, so no needy kit . . .

Anyone have a link or idea where I could get a picture of the proper wiring routing in the area behind the gauges and near the hood hinge. I started working on the fresh air blower and dove in deeper to fix the sticking cables. I found a couple cracked and broken plastic ducting piece that I have on order. That was half way to fixing the wiring mess. So the entire fresh air / heater assembly and master is out of the car. So it's a good time to clean up the wiring and put it back in the factory routing clips.

Photos are always better.


This was duct taped together.

Quick question if someone can help. How do you get the evaporator case out?
I removed the top bolts and brackets, disconnected the lines, pulled the capillary tube,loosened the clamps to the air ducts. There seems to be something at the bottom right side holding it in.

Do I access whatever it is from inside the car or under the car? I figured I'd ask before wasting time.

Deez, yer TexAss Daddy to the rescue!

You have to remove the air intake duct that is behind the passenger's floorboard - that duct sticks partially into the evaporator airbox (sound familiar )?!?! You'll see that the fan speed resistor pack is attached to the duct.

Deez, when you remove the evap box, you'll notice that the seal between it and the driver's side, cabin air intake pipe will be disintegrated to powder - good idea to make a new one (if not included in the stuff you bought). Also, good idea to make a new seal for where the evaporator drain spout passes through the floor pan so the blower motor does not draw in outside air from those two spots (every little bit helps, buttofcourse).

You must have a camera hiding in my garage. I figured it was just the bedroom. That seal was dust. The hose to the ducts is just as bad. I need to replace that too. I'll look at the drain. The new evap has a seal around it. But it does not seal tight. You can sorta see the light between the seal and box in the photo. I want to force all the air through the evap. So I was thinking of a small bead of silicon around the edge. Needed???



I need to figure out the upgraded blower motor mounting and wiring. No instructions for this part.



This is a typical case of while you're in there. Every time I take something apart I find several added things that need fixed.

What's to say there's not a camera hidden in every room in your house (except your kids' rooms)?!?!

Here is something that works way better than silicone for filling gaps like what you're talking about (not THAT "gap") - can get it at most auto parts stores (definitely NAPA), or Amazon etc. On my airbox (a 1987 - much different to yours), there is actually a plastic guide plate that goes on top of the evaporator core (an opening in the plate, that is the same diameter as the fan, only allows air to pass through there, thus really "guiding" how it is drawn through the core), and I sealed around the perimeter of the plate with the strip caulk. I would definitely use it where you have pictured above. It is much easier to work with than silicone, shapes and sticks like crazy, but is also non-hardening, so can be removed later if necessary.

Deez, another thing to consider; I farkin hate those spring clips that Porsche used to secure the box top to the bottom, so instead, I used safety wire wrapped around the spots were the clips go - worked perfectly and was way easier to deal with than the clips.

I could not find Rawknees Calk anywhere. Weird Right??
And I'm waiting on another order of misc duct parts.
So I move to the back to start on the compressor and condenser. They sent me two lower mounts and one upper.

So I'm done for now.

I got the interior control cleaned, lubed and reinstalled.

I found some putty cord sealant at Lowes that looks and feels like the factory sealant I found around the blower mount plate. It's not in plastic in the box so drying out is not a concern for the manufacturer. Its like silicone putty. I put it around every air gap I could see.





I also found some self adhesive aluminum backed insulation at lowes. It has an R value of 3. I cleaned and lined the box with it.
