A.C. bracket bolts
#1
Hi. I'm beginning the process of re installing my a.c. system. I'm missing the 2 circled bolts which screw into the block. The other one is holding the ps bracket so I couldn't lose it.
Anyone know what size they are?

Hmmm.  I'd have to check when I am home, but I thought those were all 5/8 studs that came off the front of the head, with washer nuts to hold the bracket on.  Yes, one is the long bolt that is also the pivot for the Power Steering, but I think the other are like 4 inch long studs.

Thanks. I do have those. I was thinking they were too long but the bracket is pretty thick

Ok new question. I picked up a new evaporator core and since I didn't personally remove the old one I have a question about installing the thermostat. See pic.where on or in the box does the thermostat mount or how does the pickup penetrate the heater

Thermostat location. The sensor wire runs thru a hole in the evaporator core at where it u=enters the air box

Here is also a picture of mine out of a 73 vert.
Couple words of caution and suggestions. Do a pressure check on your new heater core and air conditioner parts. I put water in a wheel barrow to get big enough container for air cond. condenser. Heater core will fit in a bucket. When I checked the brand new heater core it had a leak. Yes they made it good but had bought on ebay. I went to Auto Zone and got the next one. I have had two over the years be bad out of the box. It was down in the middle of the core not a damage from shipment just a defect in the new core. That really makes your day when you have to pull the dash out again.
I also suggest that you put mesh wire over the hole coming through the cowl. The replacement foam kit I got had two thin pieces of foam so I put the wire between them. Will keep the mice and snakes out of the heater box. I also put mesh wire under the cowl vent grills and put stainless steel scrubber pads in the cowl drains on each side to keep mice from building nest and storing stuff in the cowl. Cost a few pennies but works.

Good ideas, thank you.  I'm also having repair the drain tube as someone had removed the box and broken it off. I can see it would be easy to do if you didn't know  about it.  I'm on my second round of epoxy I'll let it sit over night. If that doesn't hold I'll try something else

Sorry to keep asking questions. Does anyone know where the thing on the right goes and what it does?

I assume you have a 351C.....then the diagram below should help.
