 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.

 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.

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.

 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.

 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....
