The coil is behind the ac clutch pulley and hub which the belt runs on.

The diode is on the connector.

Just thought of something. I still have some of the controllers in my tool box from these.

There is a black box behind the glove box. Drop the glove box down and the should be a black box about 3 inches square that was a very common failure for the ac compressor. Thats where the power comes from for the compressor

check the diagram below

Roy, When I look at the location of the controller I may be biteing off more than I can chew. Is it removed from the compartment front or taking the dash apart? Thanks, Joe I REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR HELP.
