Converter Installation on a 63

I Need to know how to hook up a converter to my a/s. I was told a 64 was the 1st year they had converters. Is this going to be a nightmare to put one of these things in? I do have 120 and 12v sticking out of the wall below the kitchen sink, I was thinking of hooking up a outlet on the 120 for the converter to plug in but was wondering about the 12v sticking out and if i could connect those wires strait to the converter? Any help would be appreciated

1963tradewind,
I replaced the converter in our '87 Excella. It was quite easy. unplug old converter, loosen two wire clamps, remove old converter, place new converter on floor and screw fast to the floor, connect the two wires, clamp them down, and plug in the new converter.

Do a google search for "converter site:www.airforums.com" and you will find any number of thread on replacing converters.

A good resource for new converters is Best Converter

In our '63, the battery compartment was under the sink and cabinets. I installed a converter under the sink as close to the battery compartment as was practical. Running 120 volt to it was kind of a challenge, I wound up tapping into the electric plug by the exhaust fan for the stove.
