We need details like year and mileage!

Does everything work?

How does the a/c blow?

Year: 1976

Mileage: 59,7xx (Being a gray market import, who knows what year that instrument cluster was put in. Based on the condition I imagine its pretty close. Texas inspection sticker from 2006 shows 57,000.)

What doesn't work:

Weak AC: blows cool from center and warm on sides.

Instrument cluster lights are out, and battery light stays on after key is taken out. Fuses look nasty. Replacing all of them on Monday.

Small oil leak and either a power steering leak or one from the lines of the suspension. I'm leaning towards power steering, though.

Yup, open diff. The SL does the same thing, just for not as long.
