Sounds like you left a part of the old firewall in there or this is the wrong part. I'm not sure of the year but they changed the body style just slightly making that area a little wider in new models than the previous years. A lot of parts warehouses stock generic versions that sometimes need slight modification to fit some models.

I have a 1962 ford falcon. The hose, from what i


Aren't there hose clamps on the two hoses at the firewall? That hose should come off right there-one is connected to the heater core inlet inside the heater case, the other hose is connected to the heater core outlet tube. While you are at it, replace both hoses. Heater hoses are standard sizes, like only two sizes, larger is 3/4 " diameter. Take an old piece of your hose to parts store for replacement. They have rolls of heater hoses, can cut you off just what you need for low price.
If the hose clamps are not on the hoses at firewall, they must be accessed from under the dash, but should be easily accessible.
Really, a 1962 falcon? 50 years old and still going? That was the year I graduated high school, driving a 1957 Dodge two door black hardtop, yes, the big finned clown car-lol.

How do I replace a power steering gear box in 1971 chevy c10


In general terms, its fairly easy.
You need to disconnect the pitman arm, the steering coupler to the column, the ps hoses, and unbolt it from the frame.
The tricky part is getting the steering wheel and pitman arm aligned so the steering wheel is centered when you put it back together.
Some are notched so you have to put it back one way, some are not.

Firing order for 1971 VW Super Beetle Can't start and need the firing order of this 1971 SuperBeetle.


The firing order is 1-4-3-2. The cylinders are numbered from the front of the car with 1 & 2 being on the passenger side and 3 & 4 on the driver's side, so #1 and #3 are closest to the rear seat. The distributor turns clockwise and there is a scribed notch on it to mark the #1 position. Hope this helps.

Missing bolts on '73 superbeetle...


I wouldn't get them from the bolt store. Usually torque converter bolts have a special head on them. I would find a vintage beetle specialist online and get them from them. You could also buy an assortment of bolts to get the correct thread count and size found and then order torque converter bolts from a parts store. Oreilly's has some of the more standard converter bolts...
