My '76 2 door i bought for $50, saving up some money to get a paintjob and wheels before I start making modifications to the engine and suspension.

Radio, glove box, trim pieces, heater controls, ash tray then heater hoses and heater box should be able to come out. Probably plugged core or valve broke or not hooked up.

What is your heater doing or not doing? 

Heater control valve opened up nicely. No issue there. It's just to clean out debris like leafs.

I'd imagine it's too long an engine to fit without cutting firewall, etc. L16/L18/L20b do fit with minimal work I've seen. KA/SR do as well.

I sincerely hope not.   ^_^

 

As he said, it's about 8-10" too long to fit in the engine bay. Even an L16/L18/L20b is a bit of a squeeze. 


It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

Not a rebuttal...just sharing some cool possibilities. Old but, interesting. RB in a 120Y 4-door.

I would at this stage point out that an RB is shorter in length than an L28, and the engine bay of a B210 is longer than that of a B310. 

 

 

But that is cool.   ^_^

Update: So now that the car is all apart and my mechanic is getting the a/c installed I stopped by the shop this morning to have a look and noticed that Stanley does in fact have the indicator area for the a/c. Who knew! My dumb ass didn't see it before. I'm going to have to source out the plug and bulb but just thought I'd let everyone know the discovery.

 

Not Stanley's radio cluster but this is the indicator and plug I'm talking about.

And my NOS heater hoses showed up last week. Didn't need them as Stanley's hoses were still good but these are nice to have as backup just in case.

Meanwhile, I may need to find vent hoses. Not sure yet. To be continued.......
