Is it the teal-green appearing one...?

The one there's a lot of pics there of, with the black grille? It sure looks nice! $3K sounds like a good deal price for all that's there, if it is 'all that'... All depends on how fast you need to part with it, I guess... and who all has the dough...
Is that a section cut out of the passenger side wheel house for air flow purposes, or am I seeing something else?
This build had to cost you more than $3K... how bondo-free is the body under that paint?
If I were loaded with $$$$, I'd be more interested than just drooling! :)

It has brakes from a 91 rx7 in there? Wow, what fab work was needed for that. Could we get some detailed pictures?

Or does it read new stock brakes, 91 rx7 air conditioning? Could we get info how to install that?

brakes

no, stock brakes. complete 91 a/c system, didn't have to buy a thing. yes that is the pass side opend up with a curved scoop for air flow. when i was dynoing the truck with the F.I. motor the hood was up and closed on one of the runs,saw a 3 hp drop when the hood closed. i am finishing work on a tan-orange 75, that is so stock it even came with the original looks to be un- used spare tire 48,000 on odometer . got it from the original owners son, said his dad drove it around the san francisco erea only. it will be going up for sale also. the valve stem cap on the spare is a brass stem remover with rubber cap on it, iv'e talked to two friends that work for mazda, bolth think it's original,one has the exact same cap, doesn't remember were he got it. p.s. original spare tire is a brigestone skyway deluxe . thanks for everyones input on the 74

Yep, that is the orig tire. I got my 77 in the summer of 2001 and the truck had the same orig tires on it. I have since retired the rims with the old bias ply's on them. Good to hear that there are some orig tires around yet.

Hey rtrypwr-

I saw the B-Series style A/C switch mounted in the dash area in your pics- I'm curious what all it took to make the RX system work with the REPU heater core? Did you just mount the RX blower and evaporator under the dash and not worry about the temp controls, or is the logicon hidden in the glove box or what? I realize there's about a hundred different ways to meld the two systems, but am curious exactly what pieces and parts you used from the RX besides the compressor and lines... any other parts besides the switch from a B-Series (or 626 or whatever)?

a/c

ok ... where the stock condensing coil goes, i had to clearance the lower part of the rad support,1/8-3/16 flipped stock 91 brackets on coil made tabs to mount.cut down center of last row of condens coil fins ,where lins change from rectangle to round,moved those lines in about 1/8" .strip of 1/8 foam tape along top and bottom of rad support for cushion against coil rubbing.re bent lins off coil to location i wanted. cut off 91 a/c and power steering bracket just above a/c belt tensioner , ground and shaped to my likeing, drilled and tap through top of braket, make a plate for tensioner bolt{loosen or tighten belt}run bolt down through plate to belt wheel. rebend lines off compresser , i went through stock holes on rad support.reciever drier pass side fender well. OK INSIDE this is a pull air through the coil type system take out fresh air intake door and square to round pipe take the stock 91 evap coil and box make sheet metal adapter remember you want as big a openings as possable , so cut grind and shape.i just left the other side of coil open for incoming air.my plan was to use a blade type 12 fan for full on air flow, have that one on a second switch. pulled stock truck blower motor and wheel out enlarged opening behind wheel for more air flow, fabed in 91 blower motor and wheel, once again more air flow. rebend lines off evap coil to go through stock truck holes, i was able to make it so evap coil and stock truck heating unit comes out of truck in one piece.NOT EASY.used 91 temp relay wired everything off it[on switch relay for compreser. etc]defrost heater plate at bottom has to be sealed better and make exit larger [air flow]. fabed a lower console in with vents , made a adapter to direct air through vents. also cut round holes in top of heater core mounting for two more vents, system pressureizes enough air will flow through those also. fan speeds wired through stock controlls. switch on dash turnes on relay for compreser. i'll take closer pics if you really want to do this. IT WAS NOT EASY. but everything is hard lines with o-rings and fittings.does not leak. i'm going to do a hybrid system next time with a stock under dash unit[repu]and condensing coil, with 91 compreser and hard lins if you want to wait. i'll be working out the bugs if there are any.by the way a/c service and install is my trade. look at the lines in the engine compartment of pics, they look and fit really well.one more thing that hapens on repu ,heater controll does not always shut off water flow all the way, you have to address that.anyone thinking by now this guy's gotta be a crankster, i'm not i just love to fabricate.
