I am attempting to secure quality photos of original 61-65 Corvair AC
Condenser Removal decals.
This was GM part # 3815127 and was definitely used on all 1962-65 Corvair AC
Condensers, probably also used on 1961, although I cannot confirm that from
the '61 Assembly manual.
On the Early Model Corvairs the decal was attached to the right rear end of
the condenser, shown in the '64 Assembly manual Sheet B1.00 as item #4.
On the '65 Corvair it was the same part number but was attached to the top
of the cardboard shroud overlying the condenser, shown in the '65 assembly
manual Sheet B1 as item #11
If we can get a highly detailed photo of a complete original decal it should
be possible to have this reproduced. To the best of my knowledge the decal
has never been reproduced.
This is NOT the oil filter removal sticker, which is readily available both
as NOS and reproduction items, GM part # 3814124, shown as item #5 in the
'64 Assembly manual photo.
I have a few photos of examples of the original decal. Unfortunately, none
of these are complete - missing letters, lines, etc.
I have posted those photos and this request on the Corvair Center Forum at
this link: http://corvaircenter.com/phorum/read.php?1,802962
This is currently my best accounting of the text of the decal:
TO REMOVE CONDENSER FOR ENGINE SERVICE
1. REMOVE 1/4 SCREWS ATTACHING
CONDENSER TO SIDE BRACKETS
2. LIFT CONDENSER AND SHROUD OFF BRACKETS
???? AND SET BESIDE CAR
CAUTION: HIGH PRESSURE FREON
DO NOT REMOVE HOSES
Thanks for whatever help you can give me.
