Hi Bob... My friend David Bass restores SC/Rambler and AMX wiper motors. Here is the link to his web site... www.amxwipermotors.com Dave is a former SC/Rambler owner and is currently restoring an AMX. I've seen David's work first hand and he does a fantastic job. I mean his wiper motors are perfect. Please give his web site a look and please note the before and after pictures.
any comments or blog posts about David's service would be appreciated.

I have a posting request. Take a look at my combined photos of the charcoal painting on the doors. Left vs. Right.
I am interested in getting other original paint Scramblers photos like this to help decide how common this was on Scramblers. I have to decide how I want to restore the doors - Both like the right, or 100% "factory". Let's try to solicit photos from others involved on the blog.

Hi Bob, In the SC/Rambler Q & A section of the blog, someone asked
if heater control valves had numbers stamped in them. The part number
in the AMC Parts Catalog 1967 thru 1972 for the valves is in Group
13.035 and is part number 319 0162. The correct NOS heater control
valves and my original heater control valve have "69" stamped
underneath the control lever in addition to "on" and "off". The
control lever covers the numbers up in the off position. They are
only visible when the lever is past the halfway open position. Ranco
made the valves up until about 1998 when they went out of business. I
believe only the valves supplied by Ranco to AMC had the numbers
stamped in them. The last time I saw one for sale was at the last
Kenosha Historical Society Show there was one correct valve in the
original unopened AMC packaging with the punch card of the purchasing
dealer in 1969 wrapped around the box offered for $400.00.
Thought you might like to spread the word. Maybe we can all watch another increase in the value of our cars take place this year.
(2) SC's will go up at Barret Jackson on Wednesday Night:
Lot 499.1 - A Scheme car
Lot 500 - Matt Wilson's old B scheme car - "Johnny Lightning" version
>From the looks of it, they should cross the block in the later hours of coverage on Wednesday night.
Should be a good way to spend a cold winters night in the northeast!
Here is an e-mail from Eric , cost of system ommited for now ..
You can blog these now if you like if you can keep the price off at first that would be great. We like talking to our customers so we make sure they are ordering the right stuff and we also offer differrent options. For instance we can ceramic coat the flanges, zinc the hangers but obviously that would add cost. The system as you see it with the brackets welded on but without the hangers would be $???.??.
Here is what you would get.
Front pipes, flanges, extension with donuts, adapter pipes, glasspack mufflers, tail pipes with brakets welded on, we can include clamps for that price but they obviously would not be the q-clamps. If you want q-clamps they would be $??.??/ set extra, we can include the tips, and the hangers but they would be extra also. I am working on getting the strap clamps for the tips as well.
Thanks again for the kind words and all your help on the restoration. We are going to try to start the car again today so I will try to get some pictures to you.

Quite by accident, I now have verification there were at
least two vendors supplying jacks for 1967 to 1969 Americans. The
difference between the two jacks I have discovered is the flip tab
that changes the jack from going up to down. One tab is almost flat
and the other one has a small half a teardrop piece at 90 * to the
tab. The picture of Kevin Shope's jack on the blog has the small 90*
tab. At this time I don't how I might confirm it, but I think the
jacks with the 90* small piece were the ones painted grey and the
flat tab ones were blue. Not exactly earth shattering, but more
strange stuff about SC/Ramblers.
