I'm going to replace my relay switch for ac and in looking at catalogs, I see many 68 switches which appear to be the same as the one on my 69. I can't seem to find any for a 69 that show a picture. Are they the same switch or are there differences between the two that you can't see?
Any help is always appreciated..

That is probably the part I need. It does appear to be different from the one that is on the car now, as far as the prongs go. It also appears that I have a relay from a 68 on there now. Does anyone know if the are different other than cosmetically.

This should be the relay you want. Some catalogs dont agree and give you the wrong one and then it doesnt work right, I went thru 3 before insisting on the right tabs . Hope this helps.

The relay I took off is that same as the one you show in appearance. However the tab for the ground is in the number 4 postition rather than the 5 position. I don't know if this is correct as this relay matches the ones for 67-68 in the catalogs and I was told that some go from 68-72. Any ideas??? I don't know if this relay was original to the car.

I tried the relay with ground in #4 position and the fan didnt work on high speed. When I put this one in place (pic), it fired right up and works on all 4 speeds nicely. print out this pic, take it to your napa or auto parts store and they can get you their catalog that shows the relay and its tabs. Then order the one that matches this one. you should be good to go then.

Thanks for everyone's help. I found that many resto catalogs sell the relay that actually is for 67-68 cars to include 69-70. This is for the high speed. If you use the wrong one you will have no high speed. I also found that NAPA has the correct one for 69 which is different from the 67-68. Echlin AR108 is the correct part number, $19.69 + tax.
