  • 1963 1964 Lark Climatizer

    Does any one have a picture of a climatizer valve for a 63 or 64 Lark? I can not for the life of me figure out how this thing mounts under my dash.

      Here's a pic from when I rebuilt mine:



      This is from just between the passenger's seat and the dash, looking slightly up from the seat edge toward the blower. You can see that the straight tube is on top and the curved one points down.



      This pic shows a top-down view of the valve assembled to the bracket, with the actuator cable attached and the mercury bulb coiled on top.
      The two holes in the foremost edge of the bracket are the ones that match up with the holes in the lower lip of the dash.

      Hope this helps!

        Great pics, Clark. Terrific reference for future projects. Lately we've seen a lot of extra time taken by Forum members to help document their work to help others. Nice job. [^]

        That last shot looks like something Mel Gibson pulled out of that blown up house in Lethal Weapon...mercury switches. I never had a '63 or a '64, so that's all I have to offer, sorry.

          I guess I can throw myself into that lot, at which I say "Never discount the usefulness of a quick pic from a good belt clipped cameraphone or grabbing your high res camera for a couple minutes ".

            Great pics Clark! [^]

            To clarify, the Heater Control Valve mounts on a mounting bracket which in turn mounts Diagonally, on the (2) right side dashboard mounting screws to the body bracket.

            A short formed 90 degree elbow 3/4 in. heater hose is required to connect the input nipple of the heater core to the output nipple of the Heater Control Valve. [^]

              By the way, that formed, short 90-degree hose is NLA from Stude vendors. I found a substitute at NAPA that works with a little trimming to length, NAPA part #11658, in case you're in need of one.

                ...and make sure you connect the hoses the right way....In my haste, I connected them wrong. They seem to want to connect wrong as they pass through the firewall, but check the manual closely. As a matter of fact someone posted pics of the correct connections. If connected wrong, whenever the valve opens for hot water to enter the heater core, you'll hear a very audible gurgle..a bit distracting. Since I'm adding AC to my car sometime soon, I need to disconnect and connect correctly......

                    That is what my valve looks like. It just does not look like it will bolt to the dash braace without hitting something. I guess it will. I'll try in the morning when I get up. Thanks for all of the information!!
