A little hair pulling...but I finally got through it.  Now those old drums will end up on the back of the Desoto.

Thanks...just trying to help out others who might embark on this upgrade??  Yeah I'm not sure if it's really needed on a cruiser though.

This is one of those upgrades that would be good on any car driven in California, given the great drivers we have out here, but compared to Arizona drivers, California drivers are professionals!

Ed I agree Arizona drivers can be bad but one thing about California drivers bugs the heck out of me. When entering the freeway they all come down the ramp at one steady speed as if they have the right of way over traffic  already on the freeway. Why don't they either speed up and get ahead of traffic or slow down and merge behind? Most of the driving I do iin CA is with a trailer so I always have to be in the right lane so that's probably why it bothers me so much.

Because most of them think they do have the right-of-way.  Wrong!!

Chris, I can agree with that. They also like to run up to the exits and then figure a way to jam themselves in, kind of a Mexico driving thing.

Wow been over a year since I posted anything up in this thread....Well
as you probably know the wagon has been doing daily driver duty since
the crewcab is down for it's 4wd conversion  And since I'm driving in
rainy wet coast weather I've noticed a few things...and had to fix some
things as well.

First is the Heater/AC system.  I had retrofitted
 all the underhood components to modern pieces.  And when the heat/def
is on the A/C pump cycles.  Now I have no idea if the original RV2 AC
compressor would do this as well?  But I was thinking that since the AC
compressor requires a bit of power to lock up I would unplug it and save
 a little draw on the electrical system.  So I did this and noticed that
 the wagon would fog up horribly on the inside.  It is getting a bit of
water inside.

So I plugged the compressor back in and within
about 5 minutes of driving down the road the interior glass was almost
completly clear.  Now I do understand what is happening, and thought
that the original Auto Temp systems would be the only ones to function like this?  But clearly my system is working the same way...with no complaints from me I might ad. ;)
