Hi folks,My car didn't come with the fuel filter so I need to source one with a return line. I'm not keen on the stock glass ones so I am trying to track down something like the one pictured below since I have AC and a 1/4" return line. But so far I haven't found one with 5/16" feed line and 1/4" return line.Have any of you used an aftermarket filter with a return line built in?  I realize that some of you have deleted the return line but I don't want to do that.Thanks in advance for any…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.
