Was really thinking on it this weekend about getting a little more clearance on my LC. Looking to get just 1-2” , more for looks than actual use.

I know OME, Dobinsons, and Ironman 4x4 all make a 2” lift for the 70 Series ranging from $1200 to $1800 depending on options. Luckily I have a great local ARB dealer for the OME kit if I decide to go that option.

I also see where some get 1” with just a shackle lift but that type of lift may effect your ride but is of course a much cheaper option. Again this lift will be for looks as mine is really a weekend cruiser.

Any thoughts or suggestions or any options I might have missed.

thanks

Got my original carb back from JimC that he rebuilt. I was considering leaving my China carb on there as it was doing a great job, but my OCD got the best of me and I wanted the factory one back on. Jim C did a great job. The carb Idles, runs, drive fantastic. My AC idle up was also spot on. I highly recommend him for any carb work you might need.

My next mission is figuring out why my 2 center vents don’t blow air.....AC or heat..... the 2 outside vents by the windows work perfectly. I looked when I removed the radio and the center one are hooked up as far a tubing goes.

The control levers that control the air flow from the defrost to vent to floor works on all the other locations correctly but I’m guessing that some sort of cable or lever isn’t working on the 2 center ones and it’s in the closed position.

any experts or ideas on what to look for or where to start on this.

Hello,

Lever links and/or cables may be either obstructed or in need of lubrication.

You have to take the center dash apart, clean and lubricate.

As far as center dash ..... are the cables/levers accessible from the top after removing the radio or do you need to remove the AC control panel to get to them ?

can Anyone point to a thread that might address this process.

thanks

Hello,

Top from the radio gives you only so much access. The AC control panel needs to go out entirely.

In a nutshell:
  1. Remove the radio bezel.
  2. Remove the radio.
  3. Remove the vent duct right of the radio
  4. Remove the center panel. Disconnect clock, lighter and switches.
  5. Remove the AC control panel.
  6. Remove the heater controls.
  7. Remove the lower dash bulkhead.
  8. Remove lower left duct.
  9. Remove lower right duct.
  10. Remove the instrument panel cover.
  11. Remove the vent duct left of the radio,
  12. Remove the center heater duct cover.
  13. Clean the exposed ducts.
  14. Check the heater radiator for leaks.
  15. Check the condition of the sponge seals and replace as necessary.
  16. Check the control louver on the left side. Lubricate it.
  17. Lubricate the heater controls.
  18. Check the louver's movement when you operate the heater controls. Clean and lubricate as necessary.
  19. Assemble in the reverse order.
  20. Optional: remove the blower motor and clean it. You are in the neighborhood anyway.

So tore into her this AM..... found the culprit . The threaded piece had popped out of the holder which controls the upper vents. This is located on the drivers side floorboard by the accelerator pedal. ( up under the dash)

Simple damn fix which had I looked hard enough before going in, and knew what to look for, I could have fixed it in 2 minutes.

thanks for you help Juan!!! It did get me inside to lube everything and do a little spring cleaning.
