Series IIa with A/C Really

Not sure whose this is. But I just had to laugh at the mention of air conditioning on a 2.25 motor

This truck looks great this time around! You removed the front bumper/brush guard? That was the best part! I can't remember, but I think I sent you the info of how the guy who sold it to you found/bought it (last year?).

hmmm..nope never got that info Josh!

Yeah - took a while, but does look much better now. The brush guard was bloody welded onto the front bumper - after grinding it down it looks "ok" - but it still isn't perfect....but what ever is on these things without doing a complete resto of every nut and bolt...like Bill is doing.

I love the truck man, but I have to admit I was laughing at the thought of trying to drive up hill with and ac compressor running on that sewing machine motor

Good luck with the sale. Like I said, I love the truck. Same year as my 5 door but yours looks a whole lot better than mine. I miss they days when my truck was stock.

shit...didn't get those uploaded. I will add them tomorrow. As a description though the PO had painted the entire engine bay - yep you guessed it BLACK...and there were a BUNCH of wires hanging around everywhere. I cleaned up all the wiring and put it in those black plastic loom holders - looks a lot better.

Also one fuse was gone in the ignition - and because it was one of those rare hard to find jobbies from Europe I "rigged" up a replacement with the flat type fuse - works well.

Thanks Josh - yeah you can see what it looked like before I started on it...take a look at the engine bay in that pic on the link Josh sent. Thanks Ninja dude.

Cheers guys. I am letting eBay dictate price like I did with the last one. It sold for $11K. I will be happy with around $9K but feel that may be wishful thinking!

Many times people just bid on it and don't pay. But I have had a lot of questions about a buy it now price. But nothing firm.

SOLD! Even sold to someone with only 3 feedbacks on eBay. And he paid the deposit in 20mins after the auction ended....so it is sold! $8,550 was the price it went for. Quite happy with that

I'd seriously like to see a clean complete install of an A/C system into a series rig. The dist boxes I've seen so far are HUGE... not sure that the cool air would be worth the crippled and bruised legs.

haven't seen anyone install one of these but was thinking of trying it out for the 109...

Also of interest:

Some pretty compact units that could take the place of the large and knee-pain inducing Kodiak heater.
