does anybody read this
Anybody know where you can buy the whole gang of switches etc for the climate control unit that sits in the dash. This is for a 71 Buick Skylark, 350-4v with factory air.
I've replaced everything, the compressor with a sanden unit, new hoses, new evaporator, new condenser, receiver/dryer, POA etc.
I'm talking about the control unit that mounts in the dash that says: fan off, low, med, high, max, then the slide lever for cold to hot and on the right side is another switch that says heater de-ice, vent AC, and AC Recirculate.
Does anybody know if one from a Chevelle, Cutlass, or LeMans would work from the same year.?

Ebay would be the best place to watch, but there weren't any currently listed, and I don't have any, so I did not reply.

The complete control is a Buick part no 1233960 for non-wood grain dash. This part no was used on '70-71 Buick A body only. The no is 1240133 for wood grain dash. This part no was used on '70-72 Buick A body and '70 B and C body with manual a/c.
The 4 switches were available individually and cross over to Buick A body for '71-72 and all Buick models for '69-70.
GM divisions had not standardized on A/C controls then, so none of these part numbers show up under other brands. The controls on similar A body cars look considerably different. With luck these part numbers could show up in somebody's parts offerings.
One promising place turned up that sells and rebuilds a/c controls www.thepartguy.com
