Bob.

Do you have the factory parts book for the GTV?

Bob is after something as close as possible to the OEM female spade connectors with the plastic insulator.

Exactly. That’s what I am looking for. None of mine look that good!

Logged in for the first time in a while and pleasantly surprised to see the progress! Paint is cleaning up nicely, and you're making headway on the drivetrain as well.

Having said that, if you finish before Christmas, I'll miss out on the smarta** comments that show up in this thread every December :(

I hate to disappoint on the wisecracks, but it’s got to happen sometime... I think

Leaving this here for future use: Canadian 73 GTV Resto

I don't have any current desire to dive into the full blown body work, as we're sorta doing this as a "survivor". But, the day will come.

Well, shoot! I better order the AC lines and condenser before I put the engine and transmission back in. I really don’t want to go backwards after getting it running.

I’ve spent a bunch of time just cleaning the engine bay. Broke out the little steam machine. So much better than spraying gallons and gallons of cold water on grime and grease. Very little water is used, much easier to clean up.

I'm having a bit of time finding a diagram that shows how the brake booster mounts to the pedal assembly. I think I'll just start taking everything apart and see what happens. Everything has a bunch of corrosion so it all has to come out and be brightened up.

Someone was asking about the AC wiring and whether or not it's a separate harness. I believe that it is and I'll take pictures when I get to that part.

I also tend to agree with Don, parts of the AC installation was started at the factory, but the rest was probably completed at the port of entry. The black you see in the front of the engine bay was overspray from them painting the AC condenser. Also, there were several of the AC hose holders that were affixed with self taping screws. I think the argument will continue.

Thanks for following along
Bob

Undo the 2 nuts on top that you see in the engine compartment. Then inside are another 2 nuts against the firewall. There easy to get to.

Does that take the pedal assembly out, also?

Yes. It all comes out together. Then you remove the booster from the pedal assembly.

Fantastic, much simpler than I thought. I thought it might all come out as a unit, it would be a lot easier working on it all on the bench.

I think I looked through 5-6 reference books trying to figure it out. There is no substitute for experience.

You will have to twist and turn it side to side and squeeze the pedal arms together to get them past the steering column. If you pull the pedal pads off it easier.
