Rag Joint Replacement

Hi All,I have to replace my (Steering) Rag joint, and didn't do that before. Is it possible to replace it without open/disassemble the Steering column, or Steering gear Box? What is the best way to do that? I found some videos from other Cars, but that din't help me really. Must I destroy the old Rag joint, or is it possible to move it with opening the nuts and Bolts? Must I have something I mind for reassembling, like position before disassembling? Thanks a to for every hint!With kind regards…See More

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

Posted by Norman Silverman on September 17, 2018 at 8:15pm 6 Comments

Hi.

Update:

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.

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…

7 vacuum valve-need a good one or someone to recondition mine

Posted by Norman Silverman on September 15, 2018 at 5:44pm 12 Comments

So, I've put my 7 vacuum valve from the control head side to the test, and it failed. I looked at the instructions for re-conditioning it and unless I am missing something, the instructions are missing something (about how to take off the clip that provides the tension that holds the two pieces together). 

In any case, I can't do this particular repair so I am looking for a new valve (not likely), or a good re-conditioned one, or someone who has done this before and would do mine for…
