Now that my stuck clutch is free again, I'm on to the next issues.
The first is the gear change - it is a Series II mechanism. The adjustment
appears to be off - the lever moves very far forward of vertical to get
first (especially) & third,, and very far aft of vertical to get
reverse. 2nd & 4th are almost vertical. Also, the reverse light switch
does not engage - the metal tab on the shift mechanism does not hit the
switch. Obviously, I can adjust the tab for the reverse gear switch from
inside the car. Are there any trick to adjusting the mechanism (I confess
it's been a while since I've checked a manual . . . ).
The other issues involves the AC compressor, and probably is a question for
the US listers. I need a new compressor, but cannot find any part numbers
on the one that is one the car. I don't want to disable the car by removing
the compressor unless necessary. I have a parts/repair manual for a York
Type 63 compressor. Does that sound right? Are there any more modern
(i.e., efficient/reliable) upgrades.
As always, any assistance is most appreciated!
