An earlier video covering some of the highlights of the first generation K-car:

 I drove the '87 a bit on the weekend. It went for its' annual Krown treatment (along with the '90) The ECC functioned perfectly all the time.

 But the left brake caliper is seizing up causing a horrid vibration. Plus, the tires are all getting bad. Loud and thumping and out of balance. And I think I can detect a bit of a belt shift too....

 So far the issue is intermittent, and not related to time turned off. It did coincide with the control head replacement. Before I had no blower speed at all.

Of the two control heads I got, one works. It took a bit to get going, but all is good now. However, there is one odd thing that happens. Once in awhile when I start the car, the blower doesn't work. If I ground the motor momentarily, then it works and continues to work properly, on all speeds. Hmmm... I'm going to leave it for now and see how it goes.

Older capacitors that have been sitting may take a while to function at a minimum level - a few light taps and power cycling may help.  Did the intermittent blower operation coincide with the control head swap?  I suspect it'd be power module related unless the blower motor requires a higher than normal level of current to spin-up.

 And the starter gave me grief on the '90. I had to come home a day early, got it going and didn't want to shut it off. Found a loose connection on the starter. Seems fine now.

No, but seeing that for some reason they are hard to find, I'm just going to grab this one for posterity. And for $50, that's chump change.

At the cabin for the weekend. I remembered that Jenkins has an '89 Limo, so I grabbed some tools and went for a look. It was still there and I scored the ECC control head. They also had an '86 Fleetwood, which I liberated the control head and the blower module. I got all 3 for $25! The '86 still has the aluminum rims and a good hood. $125 for the rims and $50 for the hood. I'm going back in the spring for both.
 Pics in the next post, I hope.

 Mike

You need another hood?
