AC Blower Blows fuse on high speed only

Started this discussion. Last reply by Kurt May 31. 3 Replies

Blower works perfectly on low, medium and medium high but when switched to High it blows the fuse immediately. I suspected the switch or blower resistor so I pulled the 3 wire plug at the resistor to…Continue

Fuel Tank Filler Neck

Anyone know if there is an alternative to the stock filler neck for a 63 series 62? Mine is rusted really bad and I can’t find a replacement. The replacement tanks do not come with one. ThanksContinue

"Hi Norm, when I read the title of your post I thought this may be one of those discussions not in the appropriate forum that Jason was just talking about. LOL. Anyway, you are correct, the forward hole was added and the rear is original. Good luck…"

Which Hole?

I have a 1963 Series 62 convertible the  previous owner did away with the original rear section of the driveshaft and replaced with one without CV joints resulting in the dreaded rumble. I now have a good rear section coming that I obtained from Russ. I also have Dan's new trailing arms in hand. I will be installing them in the next week or so. My front pivot mount has two holes in it (see pic). I assume the forward hole was drilled  to move the mounting forward to accommodate the incorrect…See More

Kurt replied to Norm Waters's discussion AC Blower Blows fuse on high speed only
"Correct. If you tie the dark green wire to the yellow wire, 12V will travel directly to the motor and skip travelling through the resistor even if you don't detach the wire at the resistor (since current likes the path of least resistance). You…"

"Kurt thanks for the reply. That makes sense it shouldn’t affect electrically. If it is determined the switch is defective at the high speed setting could I just remove the dark green medium high wire before it goes through the fan speed…"

Kurt replied to Norm Waters's discussion AC Blower Blows fuse on high speed only
"The brown and yellow wires are actually tied together in the wiring diagram but in the diagram it appears to be at the firewall bulkhead connector.(see red arrow in pic) Not sure why they don't show it tied at the fan speed switch location.…"

AC Blower Blows fuse on high speed only

Blower works perfectly on low, medium and medium high but when switched to High it blows the fuse immediately. I suspected the switch or blower resistor so I pulled the 3 wire plug at the resistor to take it out of the equation. When turned on high it still blew the fuse. So I pulled the dash pad off to get to the plug at the back of the switch, I found a yellow wire tapped to the back of the plug in the same location of the brown wire for high speed Any ideas what is up with that? Could this…See More

Fuel Pump Failure

Posted by Jon Shields on August 6, 2022 at 6:48am 3 Comments

Hello,

I'm located in Melbourne, Australia and my 64 sedan de ville is stuck in the garage due to failed mechanical fuel pump. The first after market mechanical fuel pump lasted a few years before it failed & left me stranded 5 hours from home. A hire car and tow got us home. On inspection, I noticed a valve not seated within the housing. I was optimistic, pressed it into place and assumed the pump was good to go. But alas, no. From what I can now determine, the diaphragm pushrod…
