Does anyone know where to get the putty that goes on the AC pipe that comes out of the bottom of the AC box in the engine compartment? I am having trouble finding some for a almost finished restoration of a 70. Any and all replies will be appreciated. Thanks

Pat, if you are refering to the thick black gritty wrap that is very hard after years of use, I found an almost exact match from a heating and air conditioner supplier. For those of you with central air in your house, its the same stuff they use to seal the pipes to the hole in the wall and also where the pipe enters the furnace. I don't think you will find anything closer than that.

you can go to any HVAC/Refrigeration wholesale house and ask for Prestite cork insulation tape - Cat # PT-1 made by the Virginia Kmp Corp of Dallas TX

the only problem is you have to buy a 30' (that's foot) roll 1/8" X 2" (that's inch)

IT"S THE SAME THING

or I could send you enough to do it if I had your snail mail address

BTW, they also have the insul-tube that is on the suction line at the alternator bracket but it comes in 6' (that's foot) lengths and it only takes about 12 inches of it (fooled ya that time)
