I want to replace the harness behind the dash so i thot this would be a good time to replace the insulation. That turned into removing, cleaning, and painting the brake pedal sled, accelerator pedal, wiper motor and bracket, e-brake handle, heater case, and drivers vent assembly. Pictures are probably hard to see. Pulled out all the switches too so I can paint the dash. I'm in Detroit so I have a few months to finish before I can drive it.

This is the main harness. There are also jumpers for the wipers, flashers, and a couple other small things. I went with a stock replacement for simplicity. Mostly held in with clips except the fuse panel, it's held in with 2 screws. This harness could probably be replaced by removing just the instrument cluster, glove box, and radio, but I took everything out to do the insulation and to give everything a good cleaning. 46 years of dust is grime is kind of nasty. Maybe it'll smell better now!

BTW if the accelerator pedal rid doesn't look familiar, I had to go with cable operated because I put a Weber 2V on the 6 cylinder. I was able to make the stock pedal pad work.

I know, I like lining up the freshly painted subassemblies and thinking how cool it looks. A little sad that they'll never be seen when assembled!

How was taking out the heater case? How many screws are there? I need to replace my heater core and some other parts.
Heater case is just the the 4 nuts in the engine bay holding the heater fan motor. You might have 1 more behind glove box going up to fresh air inlet. It's pretty easy.

There is the one up by the fresh air intake (lay on your back and look straight up) unless someone has already broken off the bracket (like mine.) I'm going to fix mine. Have some sort of pan to catch the coolant. The hoses are a little tricky cuz they clamp on the inside. Just be careful when you pry them off the core. Compared to a new car it's a piece of cake!

Sorry, my comments apply to 65-66, maybe 67-68?
