work on butters a bit today, camera died so no pics yet. but the pedal is in and works good, just need to mod the stop about an inch to the right.

butters fired up after a few cranks good to go. :mrgreen:

so I've got my 69 heater box ready to be put back together,its been some time since i took it apart.
i new i might forget how it came apart so i picked up 70's unit to help refresh my mind. one thing that jumped out [ not a spider] was the fan, the 69 is metal the 70's unit is plastic. i got pics, just need to find a way to get them onto my new mini mac. old camera not worky with new mini.
