    If you should try this, take note that the eBay rebuild kit instructions leaves out a very important detail (no mention of it). That being to NOT lose the VERY SMALL cup the pin sits in when removing the round pressure plate (the cup is in the center of the plate). I didn't notice the part during disassembly but did recall hearing a "tick" (I thought the "tick" was from the rivet removed during disassembly). When putting it back together, after getting over the panic/cussing caused by the missing tiny unique, unobtanium part, I went back to where I heard the "tick" and there it was on the garage floor. Should you lose yours, I suspect that buying any model and the cheapest WUR/CPR and disassemble for that part. I suspect it is the same. No guarantee.

    FWIW ... the FrankenCIS looks interesting in either the WUR replacement or as a total system controller option.
    Nice job, Nick! This would have made a good ?How to Video? for the Resources section

    Yes, I usually think I should have taken some photos or video when I'm nearly done.

    I did create a how to with my comments and included the vendor's instructions. The instructions have a bunch of photos ... probably better than I would have made.

    Next project ... that gosh darn AC leak.

    Ah, chasing an A/C leak. so much fun. Mine turned out to be a defective Low pressure switch. If you see black dust sticking to the white plastic, it?s a possible indication. Of course I only found the leak after replacing the hoses and compressor, but I wanted to do that anyway. It?s been perfect ever since (2016)

No issues all year however I want make sure they are protected since they do run close to my passenger side header. The cable that runs from the bulkhead connector to the alternator runs under the starter so that was the first one I wanted to cover up.

    I bought 1/2" ID DEI heat sheath (not the velcro type) and it was just right to run the wire with straight terminals though, however for the jump start post, which is the next most vulnerable wire, I need to order 1.25" ID sheathing so that it can slip over the flag terminals - I don't have any way to add new terminals of that type so I'll just use a bit bigger sheath. Thanks to Rodolfo for the idea and the part recommendations!

    I did something similar. I installed braided heat sleeves on my alternator wires since they were so close to the headers.

    Replaced Door Card Foam

    I finally got around to replacing the door card foam. Followed the instructions on the EuroTech forum which were excellent. I never realized how bad my doors looked until I saw David B's doors at a local event...I was instantly jealous. Very pleased with the result! Not a hard project, just a little bit of detail work with the foam cutting and gluing.

    The rabbit hole of interior work continues. After ripping out a ton of wiring from the previous owner's aftermarket DVD player, I am going down the route of removing and restoring the evaporator unit from under the dash. Heaven help me.

    I'm glad I could be the inspiration for you to do the job!

    For other owners that are a little hesitant about doing this on their own, it really isn't that bad of a job. After 40 + years the material is permanently formed to the card backing so it makes it a easier job and the material isn't that expensive. This time of year if you're car is in slumber land it's a good time to do it!





    So do it. You'll like the improvement!

    Good time to install the C. Miles door panel magnet modification for those not wanting to deal with snapped fir tree fasteners.
