I have the air conditioning on my 1962 however, I have never seen the rectifier on my car. You say that yours is bad, so possibly you could tell me where it is located. I remember seeing it in my 1962 air-conditioned Corvair, but I can't remember where it is or what it does. Hopefully, the video will assist you with replacing the OEM part with modern parts.

Never argue with an idiot. He'll drag you down to his level, then beat you with experience.
