Looking for an NOS or very nice EM heater control assembly

Hi Gang,

I am looking for a NOS or very nice heater control assembly. If used, all the levers must be in good shape. I have an NOS switch so it is less important. Thanks!

Joe

Joe FWIW they can be disassembled. I took mine apart, sandblasted it, then primered and painted it. I filled in the white lettering with some lettering pencils I got from McMaster. It was a fair amount of work, but doable if you want to try.

Nicks work is better than NOS. I know, because I picked up a NOS one recently. The biggest problem with the hot air heater controls is that the cables stick, and if you push too hard, you will break an arm.. on the control, not yours. I intend to do as Nick suggested, and rebuild my old one, and if it comes out well, I will put the old one up for sale.

I concur with Nick. I rebuilt mine, too. But I bought my recessed letter paint from amazon. Mine looks new.

Thanks everyone.

The defroster lever on my Corvair has been broken ever since I have owned it. I can rebuild mine, but will need to replace the defroster lever.

Anyone have a good defroster lever they want to part with?

Can you provide a link for the paint you used?

I will check later when I have a few minutes, but I think I just searched recessed lettering paint. It comes in a stick kind of like a crayon.

Joe, one thing I’ve noticed, is that rubbing alcohol works really well as a solvent-type refreshener for the black plastic knobs. I used it to clean them, and I noticed it slightly attacked the surface so I gently buffed it with the rubbing alcohol and it nicely polished them... but I had to be careful.

I also had a broken lever, and had to buy a used one from Clarks. his might be the fastest way to g et one. I have some levers, but they are not tagged as to which ones they are. Post a picture of the lever out of the housing? I will look through my stuff if I know what I am looking for.

The defrost lever is the one of the three levers that has the two prongs, because there are two defrost cables. The other two levers have one prong to connect to a cable.

In Virginia, land of salt, we had a run of broken levers back in the 80s, when they were still daily drivers, especially winter drivers! As they go in the snow...

I cut new levers out of sheet metal and used a 6-32 screw and nuts to connect the two cables to the made lever.

It took awhile (all kinds of "lettering" stuff) but I found a forum that correctly I.D.'d the product for doing indented lettering as a "Fill In Stick".

See [www.amazon.com]

Opps - that was for black lettering.

For white lettering see [www.amazon.com]
