S-10 relay bracket
IMG_20180417_185746274.jpg


Now I can finally mount my Volvo relay set correctly and get all my relays in one location.

I cheated getting the bracket tho, I got it off ebay :oops:
I just haven't had the time lately to go to any yards, that and its been too damn cold. Oh well, $12 free shipping, not too bad to have one delivered to my door.


What year S-10's use that bracket?

Sorry about the double post. I tried to edit the 1 above, and it quoted instead. Any idea where the delete post button is?

I'm not really sure, probably a wide range. Just check all the s-10's and blazers you find when your at the yard, they are on the firewall.

Thank You. This is the only site I didn't have access to delete my own post (extra or otherwise).
1lowcab, thanks for the info on the bracket. I'll have to take a look at the S-15 I have in the yard, since it'll be going to scrap later this year, after I pull the engine and everything else I want off it.

AC repair done! Went smooth and fast with no problems.
The old orifice tube looked good when I replaced it, I replaced all the o-rings on the connections I opened and I replaced the ac switches (the one on the accumulator and back of compressor).

Parts removed

Yup, vacuumed down and charged up, It's blowing ice cubes!

It was 71 out when I finished, I turned the heat on in the garage, closed all the doors and brought it up to 90 degrees....the van was putting out 38 degrees at the vents.
:D

It is possible he will remember - but he sold the van about 18 mos. ago.
