Hi list,

Now that my stuck clutch is free again, I'm on to the next issues.

The first is the gear change - it is a Series II mechanism.  The adjustment 
appears to be off - the lever moves very far forward of vertical to get 
first (especially) & third,, and very far aft of vertical to get 
reverse.  2nd & 4th are almost vertical.  Also, the reverse light switch 
does not engage - the metal tab on the shift mechanism does not hit the 
switch.  Obviously, I can adjust the tab for the reverse gear switch from 
inside the car.  Are there any trick to adjusting the mechanism (I confess 
it's been a while since I've checked a manual . . . ).

The other issues involves the AC compressor, and probably is a question for 
the US listers.  I need a new compressor, but cannot find any part numbers 
on the one that is one the car. I don't want to disable the car by removing 
the compressor unless necessary.  I have a parts/repair manual for a York 
Type 63 compressor.  Does that sound right?  Are there any more modern 
(i.e., efficient/reliable) upgrades.

As always, any assistance is most appreciated!
