Does anyone know the part number or a source to purchase the left outboard spark plug wire support (Cylinders 1 & 3) that also holds the temperature sending unit wire?  It is shown in "sixt9x33rs''s second photo, also shown on page 11 in Jerry's '69 book as well as UPC 12 sheet A7 on page 158 in the assembly manual.  Any help would be most appreciated.

Brzezinski can do wonders with a set of heads.  Very happy with all the work he has done for me.

It is best to connect the yellow wire to the starter solenoid because when bridged during cranking, it will send a full 12 volts to the ignition coil.

I know it's not correct but I have used these plastic clips to inhibit corrosion.  Part number C11565 from Clark's Corvair parts.

If you need a couple of 8.5" new Holley power valves, send me a PM.

69Z.  Bumpers and guards are at a chrome shop currently.  Each bumper $750.00.  Rear guard $175.00 each.  Front guard $125.00 each.

Unless you plan on upgrading the hoses to a barrier type hose w/ associated fittings along with a parallel flow condenser, you will not get satisfactory results using R134A refrigerant.  Also keep in mind that R134A operates at higher pressures.  You will also need to convert your metered orifice.  It has been my experience that the coldest air is made coupling an A6 compressor with R12 refrigerant.  I have more R12 refrigerant than I will ever possibly use and am happy to help fellow members if they need any.
