    Heater and Defroster questions.

    I think that I still have bad foam on my heater air diverters in the front heater. But what little air I get coming out of the windshield defroster vents is cold. My rear heater puts out normal heat. I checked the valve on the firewall and it is stuck closed. I don’t know if I have sufficient...

    Heater and Defroster questions.

    Just a very late update. If you don’t have heat from your front heater/defroster, or if you always have heat look to see if the heater valve on the firewall is stuck open or closed. Mine was stuck closed.

    Engine hesitation

    Can’t help on the engine hesitation, as it’s a problem that I have as well, but I may be able to help with the turn signals not working but the flashers do. I am going to give you 2 answers but since the flashers work I think that it will be answer #2. Answer 1 is make sure all of the turn...

    I am beginning to think that I am blind. You are the second or third person in different threads I’ve posted for different problems that has seen something that I didn’t. When you point it out it’s obvious. Thanks.

    There are some things I knew I needed to get fixed and a few that I didn't. The following is my tentative list and the order I intend to work on it. Note that some of the things higher on the list may not be as important but are things I can get done by myself in a weekend and cold weather...

    Heater and Defroster questions.

    From your picture the window defrost tubing attaches to the hole near the bottom of the heater box you show. I have warm air coming out the front of this device but no air going up to the windshield defroster vents. It is possible that the only problem is that there is a blockage in both the...

    Heater and Defroster questions.

    This is another case of I don't remember as much as I thought I did. The vent control has 3 words on the selection, but I only have 2 actual settings. I knew that the defrost vents didn't seem to get any air when I bought the Cruiser a couple of months ago. The 3 setting for the air select are...

    Can I find a decent rig for $15k?

    I just got my 76 a few months ago. I went to KC Mo from Nebraska, north of Omaha because we had found a 77 for sale there. The engine seemed fine but shifting in and out of 4WD was tough and the body had a lot more rust than showed in the pictures posted. It was going to be a project, maybe not...

    Possible to just replace the fuel pump arm rather than the whole pump?

    Thought about saying the same thing. You might be able to take it to a machine shop and have them do it.

    I intentionally made sure both heat shields were in the pictures. I wouldn’t have known to look if it wasn’t for the pictures that the 2 of you sent. I wouldn’t have checked for them.

    OEM Seatbelt Mounting - '78 USDM Hardtop

    I haven’t visited Cruiser Corp but SOR says that you will need to drill holes to mount their 3 point. Other sites have harness type straps that go over both shoulders, so not really a 3 point. I believe my 76 has the necessary mounting point for the factory style belt but if they aren’t...

    I don't know how to add multiple users to a reply, so I just made 2 of them. I want to thank you again for your pictures. I took it to a custom exhaust shop and I should have it back tomorrow. Both you and Living in the Past have been a great help. I'll post pictures Saturday of the results.

    I looked for the heat shields. The one by the transfer case isn't there, but the one at the back end of the box is. I used your pictures and brians to show the shop what I wanted. I'll post pictures Saturday of the results.

    76 Cruiser, 2 questions-Exhaust Routing and Factory Manuals

    You have been a lot of help. I’ll see if those heat shields are there. They very well may not be because the guy I bought it from took everything off, bead blasted everything to bare metal and replaced all rusted parts with metal. He works for a body shop and did this in his spare time. But I...

    76 Cruiser, 2 questions-Exhaust Routing and Factory Manuals

    This is at the underside rear of the cruiser correct? I appreciate the picture and I will talk to the shop installing the exhaust and see what they can put to shield the muffler or the tailpipe from putting excessive heat on a body part. I noticed that SOR shows a ‘clamp onto the exhaust pipe’...

    You have a good eye. I live in Nebraska and yes they do salt. If anything, they put more salt down now than they did in the 70’s & 80’s when I owned my earlier FJ40’s. So to make sure that I understand, you are saying salt can collect on that plate if it’s there and with the heat and salt it’s...
