  1. Have you looked at your '88 to see if the wiring for AC is present or are you just assuming that it is not? AC relay should be present (wiring). Clutch wire should be there. AC pressure switch terminal should be there. As far as I know that's about it.
  2. Knob-and-tube wiring (sometimes abbreviated K&T) is an early standardized method of electrical wiring in buildings, in common use in North America from about 1880 to the early 1940s.[1][2] It consisted of single-insulated copper conductors run within wall or ceiling cavities, passing through joist and stud drill-holes via protective porcelain insulating tubes, and supported along their length on nailed-down porcelain knobinsulators. Where conductors entered a wiring device such as a lamp or switch, or were pulled into a wall, they were protected by flexible cloth insulating sleeving called loom. The first insulation was asphalt-saturated cotton cloth, then rubber became common. Wire splices in such installations were twisted together for good mechanical strength, then soldered and wrapped with rubber insulating tape and friction tape (asphalt saturated cloth), or made inside metal junction boxes. I guess you missed my point. 30 years ain't ain't nothin in the grand scheme of things. The evolution of residential plumbing and electricity is a relatively new phenomenon. Electricity did not come to the area that I live in until about 1937........I've spoken to old timers here who remember life before electricity, and then they tell me in the beginning you were lucky if you had one light bulb.
  3. OK, I was guessing. Many of the houses I worked on in FL from the 50s lets say was wired with the same wiring you have.....was not uncommon for the time.
  4. Ever hear of knob-n-tube wiring? It's called evolution.........materials change over time. To answer your question- I suspect your house was built in the late 40s to early 50s, it was the materials that were available at the time, the height of technology for the era. Young people today assume that what is always was.......not so. Much if not all of what you use or consume or have come to expect out of an appliance or convenience has all taken place in the last 100 years.....what's old really ain't that old.

  6. I suspect voltage is leaking to the metal box where it is clamped to the box. Glad I stayed out of this thread.
  7. Do yourself a favor, really. https://www.jegs.com/i/Powermaster/713/58137/10002/-1?&mrkgcl=1239&mrkgadid=3328062169&adpos=1o1&creative=329886787812&device=c&matchtype=&network=g&jegspromo=thirdparty&gclid=Cj0KCQjwjMfoBRDDARIsAMUjNZrADJmkBG3aoQtkbzk8xk7OToXUzKIRHPRahbASmioI67YcZIulLlMaAg3XEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds
  8. Yeah, I suspect so.......regulated by the ECM. Some guys make a lot of work out of saving a penny or two.
  9. If you can expound on this a little more I'd appreciate it. Maybe after you get it put back together you can point out exactly what you had to do or get done to make it fit? Thanks

    I dig the hauler for sure........not so much what it's hauling.
  11. It's compatible..........same thing right on up through '95 I believe.
  12. You still have to mount a compressor and run hoses. Don't see the point in this.
  13. Here is what appears to be a nice straight clean driver- $3000 Look for something like this- https://augusta.craigslist.org/pts/d/waynesboro-1989-jeep-comanche/6909082860.html
  14. No way in hell would I spend that kind of money on someone else's misery. And that's precisely what you will buy, misery.
  15. Matte finish in powder coat. Which BTW, is pretty close to what a new factory bumper would look like.
