I'm having a heck of a time locating a resistor for my 70 elky 350 w/A.C,,I've checked everywhere,.. Anyone have any ideas? In the meantime i picked up a 4 prong resistor from the local G.M dealership, but its supposed to fit a mid 80s astro fan. its a little different in size and shape and since my wires going to it, have individual terminals, plugging it in is not an issue,, nor is mounting it..
Finally my question,,, Does anyone have any ideas if this resistor will work?
thanks to all who have helped me in the past

The resistor should work if you can connect it the same as the old one. The values of the resistor may be a little different than your old one. If this is the case, the blower will run a little slower or faster than it did with the original.

The job of the resistor is to drop a certain percentage of the applied (12V) voltage. If it is connected correctly, I see no problem.

Replacement resistors are available from aftermarket suppliers, Ground Up, Year One, OPG, etc.

Apparently not everywhere, I just searched parts partsvoice.com and found 3 stocking dealers, 2 in NY and 1 in Montana. Try it out yourself;

According to the parts catalog the part number you need is 3949879, all 69-71 Chevelle heater and A/C blower motors engine/trans etc has nothing to do with it.

Thanks for your input guys,, i may just wait and try to be a little more patient in locating the correct part. who knows,if i installed this astro van part in my elky,, i might get the urge to pick up the kids from school
ok, bad joke,, but i couldnt resist. : )
according to G.M parts books,, it says 3 different resistors will fit, i tried one, but it was a 3 prong so i hope your right elcamino with that 3949879 number.
ill check out ground up also
thanks again
