Re: Thanks for the add and RV2 questions

That is an awesome fix to the ammeter problem. That is the first external shunt I've seen - great idea. Did you ever consider running the a/c clutch power through a relay? I don't know how much of a load it draws, but recently installed an old NOS relay setup for the headlights after the old headlig...

Re: Thanks for the add and RV2 questions

Hello again, happy new year. So I have the refrigerant system in this back together and it is working well, getting 38 degree air at the vents @ 80 degree ambient temp outside. Two last things puzzling me though. The airflow from the blower is pretty anemic, just uses a crude three speed resistor sw...

Re: Thanks for the add and RV2 questions

Sorry to re-hydrate an old thread, but I did a little forensic dissection old RV2 I pulled out of this one - looks like someone left the a/c on when drag racing...

Re: Thanks for the add and RV2 questions

Thank again, I never thought of doing it that way. I've never really understood what was inside those mufflers anyway. Now I can get maximum thump!

Re: Thanks for the add and RV2 questions

Thank you for your fast reply. Here's a photo prior to disassembly. I didn't see any identifying marks on it but admittedly did not look closely.

Thanks for the add and RV2 questions

Hello, thanks for adding me to this forum. I'm working on the restoration of a '70 Dodge (RV2 system) and ran across a few things I haven't seen before.
