Re: '72 Greenbrier Wagon Project

Anyone happen to know what the resistor values for the different fan speeds are?

I have the high speed working, but the others are not. Hooked up the factory relay to get that working.

Mine has the controls in the dash for the a/c setup, but the under hood and dash were swapped over to the heat only setup. All the harness stuff is still complete though...would like to get the fan speeds working for now, then as I come across the factory a/c stuff start putting that back together.

Re: '72 Greenbrier Wagon Project

Well looks like the previous owner wasn’t telling the truth on the rebuilt trans....imagine that. Never shifted right from the get go. Had 3-4 gears go out. Trans guy pulled it apart and the 3-4 clutches were gone and 2-4 band pretty much gone. Splines on the input shaft were worn bad somehow. All original parts inside...go figure.

Oh well its getting rebuilt and put in a transgo shift kit. Hope to get it back soon.

Re: '72 Greenbrier Wagon Project

Well got the trans rebuilt. 3-4 clutches were gone and 2-4 band wiped out, splines on the pump shaft (?) were also ground down....with the shift kit 1-2 shifts harder than I hoped, but having fun driving it.

Started working on the stereo, bought a set of 4x6 for the dash. Not sure how to make the drivers side fit with the round magnet. Original speakers square magnet fit right beside head light switch...bought a 50 watt x2 audio amp board. Going to gut the original am radio and swap that inside.

Put relays on the headlights and got all the dash lights working, only had one working.

While it was apart went ahead and did the in dash tach. Pretty nice, not the easiest to get in there!

Re: '72 Greenbrier Wagon Project

Hey George, I've been meaning to ask you, did you add the cowl hood, or was it on when you bought it??

I always really liked this photo of it...

It was on it when I bought it. Previous owner added the hood pins I was told.

Re: '72 Greenbrier Wagon Project

Since installing the tach in the dash, feel better about the trans rpms...62 mph is 2000 rpm.

That transmission guy must really love you. That's two in the Chevelle and one in the wagon isn't it?

I like the tach.

I like the tach.
He probably hates me....he had the 700 out a few times. Seems good now other than 1-2 shift being a bit too aggressive.

Three in the chevelle since 2009 I think. First one was my fault. Had the wrong dipstick tube/ dipstick. Way overfilled for too long. But it lasted a few years racing....then had a new one put together in 2014 and it lasted till this year. Not too bad with as much racing as it sees. It was only $550 to rebuild this time. Well did have to replace the bellhousing too....

Hopefully this 700r4 stops the transmission rebuilding for awhile....would like to get the A/C done sometime. May LS swap it while at it....

Re: '72 Greenbrier Wagon Project

George, what size tires are you running on your wagon? I'm with Mike....I love that picture of your wagon. I think I'm going to paint mine 71 color code 43 (lime green metallic) myself.

Sorry I kept forgetting to look at the fronts. They are 225/70/15. The rears are 275/60/15.

Thats a good spot for picture taking. Is this color code 43? Guess I should look at the cowl tag again! Im thinking of trying to make it look like a Heavy Chevy wagon...

IIRC I think the other speeds may use a different 12v power supply as on a lot of GM's the high speed fan has its own fuse.So if all the other speeds aren't working the first thing to check would be are you getting 12v to it to the relay and then the grounds.

Yeah the high speed hooks up thru the relay then to the blower motor. The other speeds need to hook up to the blower motor resistor. The plug for it is there, just dont have the resistor.

I'm actually thinking about doing a stripe down the side of my wagon also. I'd also considered the Heavy Chevy idea, but this is a pic of my first idea below. If I do the side stripe, I won't put SS stripes on the hood.
Similar to the 69 wagon with the Yeko style striping.
