When Can I KILL MOBBY!!!!!
« on: December 28, 2008, 11:31:33 AM »

I'm sitting here frustrared as hell.
 
The Mice are out there doing the chinese fire drill while I rest my arm.
 
We had to put a new heater control and blower switch in Mobbys car.  Instead of him looking in the service manual to see how it's done, I assumed the whole cluster came out.  Well we did that.  All we had to do was take the radio out.
 
In the mean time, I put a new fuel pump in.  That fought me every inch of the way.  When we got all done, the alternator decided to burn up in his car.  A piece of insulation bakolite broke loose somewhere and jammed it.  Not having one, I retrofit the one with the broken stud in the car from that old 68. 
 
So now they are out there putting the dash together. 
 
It's a long story, but I have been McGievering all day.
 
And we were supposed to leave here for a party an hour ago

That's usually the point of time where I put the tools down, grab a cupla rotguts and a pack of Smokin Joes and sit on my fron stoop and chill.
And, if I'm lucky,  the young blonde nurse next door gets home about that time....

Considering I put that cluster back in in 10 minutes. .  .
 
Speedo/odom/trip is easy.  Get yer fat paw up there and push it back in.  The end of the cable is broken off.
 
Someone probably forgot to put the bulbs back in on the dash lights.  Ahem!
 
I have to switch the bulbs on the turn sig.  I told Lamb Chop I wasn't sure how thwy qent back in.
 
Now that we know how to get at the heater controls. . .Ahem!  RTFM. . You "assumed" I knew how to take apart your dash.  It's completely different then the Polara.  Mine the face plate comes off.
 
Anything else you want to whine about?  The heater controls work
