Looking for a source for my missing exhaust heat riser.

Replacment springs with square ends

Hello,Purchased new front springs from Springs and things for my 63. Both ends are square cut as opposed to the tapper cut on the originals. My question is where to position the lower spring end?  The service manual has the tapered end falling between the raised bump and the shock center line. doesn't seem right having the spring end hanging off the control arm. I called the company and they confirmed I have the correct springs.Thank you.See More

64 Recirc/Fresh Air Door Actuator replaced; FROM THE INSIDE.

Posted by Norman Silverman on February 4, 2019 at 11:21pm 8 Comments

I am happy to report that I have successfully replaced the Fresh Air/Recirc door actuator that is located on the blower box-and have done so without having to remove the blower box. I did it by taking out the glove box and attacking it from the back.  It took several days, LOTS of patience and some band-aids, but it is done.
