Junkyard spoils for the day

A full EATC system and a full OHC!

The OHC is a gray non-sunroof model. I took the gray part off because I'm going to be painting it silver to match the accents of my interior. I can't wait to get these installed! These were the first 2 mods I ever wanted to do to my truck.

Looks like you got almost everything. If you go again, grab another of the white flex tubes - one is not enough. Also, I dont see the EATC vacuum harness in the photo. You'll need that if you don't have it. Did you get the pigtail for the blend door actuator?

I know I am going to recognize what it is when someone points it out, but for now, I am drawing a blank. What is the EATC?

John Griggs has got an how-to for the EATC on his cardomain... how the heck do you think I knew what to get!?! Lol c'mon Evan!

Bob, there was only one Explorer with the EATC at the junkyard, so I am going to have to go and get some 3/4" bilge hose like John mentioned. The vacuum harness is also on the headunit... you can see the foam that is wrapped around the vacuum harness right beneath the white hose for the interior sensor. And the pigtail on the far left is the blend door actuator pigtail. It's actually still got the clip from the glovebox light connector on there still in that picture. So I think that is everything?

I could be forgetting something but it looks to me like you're covered. Have fun!

EDIT:

Oh, one more thing. Did you get the round metal retainers for the sun load sensor and interior temp sensor? They hold the sensors onto the pins in your dash. There should be 2 small ones for the SLS and 2 slightly larger ones for the ITS. I think I can see one or two in the photo but I can't tell if all 4 are there.

And another. Since you have a Level II with a black dash, you might want to paint or otherwise darken the light-colored foam that seals the interior temp sensor to the dash. The foam on mine shows through the small vent hole and looks out of place with the black - it's been on my to-do list to fix that ever since I installed the EATC.

Well I just went and looked, and I managed to get 2 of the 4, haha! One for each sensor though, so hopefully that will work alright for me. If not, I'll have to come up with something creative! And thanks for the tip on the foam! I'll definitely look into that.

Kyle - what junkyard did you hit for this stuff? And more importantly....did they let you pull it yourself (I'm assuming they did...).

Dave, I did get the mounting bracket and all the screws for the OHC... you're right though they aren't in the picture.

01rededge, I got everything at Farris Auto Salvage in Grand Prairie, TX. It's a suburb on the south side of Dallas. They actually did NOT let me pull myself, though I went out and pretty much did do it myself because of the specifics of what I needed. One of their guys was out there though and he helped me out. The u-pull-it's here in Dallas are terrible.

Yes like John said I got everything in those 2 pictures for $125 plus tax. I had to buy the blend door actuator seperately from a dealer and it cost $67. I think i got a pretty good deal at the yard, I was expecting to pay $125ish for only the EATC stuff.
