|If it's not the Original Install - BEWARE!
|It looks identical and has the same connector as the one under your dash, so it should work - right?
A unit made for a Buick, though it will plug right into a Chevy or Pontiac, will be DAMAGED the moment you plug
it in. The connector is wired differently and will send 12 volts directly into the right channel output transformer.
This will damage the transformer, output transistor, both preamp transistors AND a fuse resistor that does not
open soon enough. And even many '70 Pontiac units WON'T work in a '69 GTO due to wiring differences.
The damage resulting from this costs $349 to repair, AFTER you've already paid for a complete restoration.
Thus, units which are not original factory installs result in more phone calls and required guidance, and also
require us to install fuses to protect the output section. Please add $50 to units not originally installed in the car
unless it is the exact model number and has not been internally modified to work with another vehicle.
WE DO NOT SUPPLY, INSTALL OR MODIFY CONNECTORS. IN THE
CASE OF A MISSING CONNECTOR, WE LABEL ALL WIRES TO
ELIMINATE ANY POSSIBLE CONFUSION AS TO PROPER HOOKUP.
PLEASE ADD $50 FOR ALL NON-ORIGINAL DELCO 8 TRACK UNITS,
UNLESS YOU AGREE TO HAVE US CUT THE CONNECTOR AND
LABEL THE WIRES - THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR THIS SERVICE.
IF THE CUSTOMER NEEDS MORE GUIDANCE THAN THAT NOTED
ON THE WIRE LABELS AND THE INFORMATION PROVIDED ON OUR
"HOOKUP" PAGE, YOU NEED TO HIRE A LOCAL TECHNICIAN.
