HVAC Vacuum Valve Clip-need the one for the Power Control side



I removed both 7 nipple vacuum valves and called my buddy who owns a machine shop. Tomorrow we'll re-surface the valve faces and then I'll reinstall them. HOWEVER, the one that comes out easily and comes apart with no rivet is on the Power module side. It installs on one side with a small bolt, and on the other it is held on by a clip, WHICH IS MISSING ON MY CAR. I am going to assume it is the same clip that is used on the Control Module side. Anybody got one? Happy to pay for it.

Don't personally know Tony, nor his age but I entered the service in 1969, so I'm likely older than you. (I get the respect thing).

I was wondering if you were going to catch that LOL. You are Tony's age aren't you? I was always to to respect my elders LOL. Whenever I'm called sir I tell them my dad was sir.

Interesting, Clovis.

I admire people like you who like to utilize modern day knowledge and technology to improve the performance of our old machines. My perspective is a little different.

I could never do half the things I do now when I was a kid because I had no patience to understand the underlying technology, nor to take my time to perform the repairs. So, I now take great joy in being able to understand and operate in this "yester-tech" environment because it gives me satisfaction to finally master it as it was designed to operate, warts and all. 

Oh, about the "sir" thing; I was enlisted (true) so you don't have to call me "sir"!

I hear you Norm. I like to up date things to a certain degree, but... it needs to blend nicely with the originality of the car and look somewhat thought out. I went with Fitech fuel injection but used the stock breather with an adapter from Russ. (By the way his adapter is the strongest I've seen in various internet searches) I kept the original radio but added a derale shroud and twin electric fans with variable speed control. God I love the sound of those things. I'm looking for a little better performance and fuel mileage. To tell you what kind of nut i am i also added in a charcoal canister and have a sealed fuel system. No vapors or pollutants now. 

Let us know of any updates Sir.

Thanks for the heads-up.

Actually, I'm what you'd call a "Strict Constructionist" so I'm ok with rebuilding what originally came with the car. Everything usually fits better, too.

There is a replacement transducer being produced for around 80 I think. It's off of a 1970s Cadillac and is much shorter and better design. Works exactly like the original one. Joe on this forum uses one on his car

Comment by Norman Silverman on October 10, 2018 at 2:35pm

Update: I sent my Power module and a spare Transducer in to Classic Auto Air in Florida. Rebuilding BOTH parts comes to around $200. Hopefully, the hurricane won't hit them and I'll get my stuff back in about 2 weeks, working like new. Fingers crossed.

I won't tell you how old I am, but I will tell you that when I hear the word "NIKE" I think of a missile, not a shoe. (google it)

Comment by Clovis on September 30, 2018 at 10:38pm

Good God how old are you? You owned two 65's that didn't need work? You and Tony must have both been in grade school at the same time. 

I was a special child and graduated the highest in my class..... by a good two feet. LOL

It was a moment of triumph (I hope). I very much enjoy the comments, encouragement, knowledge (and even the occasional ribbing) from members. While I have had lots of Caddies with Comfortron (2 65's; 3 66's; 2 67's; 2 68's) I owned them mostly long ago, when the Comfortron systems worked perfectly, so the most I ever had to do was on one of my 67's where removing the vacuum restrictor restored operations to new. More on this project when I have it to report.

Although the radiator was not leaking, nor was the car running hot, I tool out the radiator today to have it boiled out and rodded out. Then I changed the oil and filter (filter is very easy to reach with the radiator out), then the thermostat got changed. 

I'll have the radiator back from the shop on Monday, and will reinstall it then. 

Still having…

The front lower ends are gone but what's there looks to be in decent condition and a fair price in today's market. I have no connection, just passing it along in case it might work for someone.
