But the blower resistor shouldn't affect the temperature control in my mind.

The blower resistor is also the HVAC control on these cars.

I hope they are easier to find than the 80s RWD ones.

 There are a lot of electrical differences between the 4.9 and N* equipped cars. Does that follow through for the ECC parts?

It's a easy fix, the red arrow is where it is, just behind the heated windshield module. I can get a jobber part like the one in the ebay link but I'm trying to find a true GM one.

When it comes to those resistor modules I'm in the habit of replacing the blower motor at the same time. Cheap and easy compared to finding another resistor module should the blower motor happen to be the reason for the failure.

 However Standard does make a good product. I have bough much from them in the past with no issues.

Awoke Chester for a good run to work and back today. I needed to give a boost because the battery was down to 6V
I had the charger connected to the car but not plugged in to the wall  
I don't remember when I was last playing around in the garage with something electrical so I'm not sure when it got unplugged. After sitting all day at work it fired right up so hopefully the battery will be ok.
Other than the boost every thing else was great.

 Cool!  thumbs up

 But remember, it's never a good idea to use the alternator to charge the battery.

Yeah, I was too impatient since I needed to do a test drive before next week and I'm not going to be available again until it's time for the FCCI. I'm not even going to be able to do a wash until the drive down.

 Keep the charger plugged in and you'll be fine.

The rate of sulphation increases significantly as the voltage across the terminals falls below 12.4.  A controlled overcharge at 2 A or less over a long period of time (several days) may help restore some of the lost capacity; after the peak charging voltage is reached (at a constant current), a slight decrease in voltage (0.2-0.3) is an indicator of when to stop the cycle.

I brought car my back home this morning. What joy to drive, nice and quiet and the tune up made it run better.
Unfortunately the weather is too hot and humid so I am unable to recolour the top. My paint is solvent based
and the air temperature and humidity has to be just so before I can use it. I am waiting for a special batch of
water based paint to be specially mixed in the colour I need and I hope to do the top done over the weekend.

I had a go at replacing the spark plugs in my 93.
The previous owner put NGK's in so I picked up some Delco platinums. The front bank was reletivly easy but the rear is so tight that I cant get my hand near any of them.
Anyone have any tips on getting at the rear plugs on a 4.9?

 They are tight, but you can get in there. I have done it many times. The other alternative is to get them from below, but the car needs to be on a hoist.

Yea, I know about getting them from under the car.
I might need someone with small hands to get them from the top. I'm missing some skin from trying to just get my fingers on them.
