    Fuse Block 65 New Yorker

    I will give it a try. Thinking about some chop sticks with fine paper. May have to sand the chop stick ends down a little bit but cannot wait to see what works in there. Just have to get that windshield done first.

    Fuse Block 65 New Yorker

    Will do. Already felt a tab at the engine side top of the block. They needed one on the bottom too!

    Fuse Block 65 New Yorker

    Yesterday, I checked out my fuse block in the 65 NYer. The terminals are all rusted, and it appears that the fuses may be rusted in. Thought about hitting them with some penetrating oil, but I have an appointment for windshield replacement on Tuesday and I don't want to miss it because I do...

    Ignition Coil Wiring

    Problem solved. As I was putting in my new coil, I noticed the negative wire from the coil, just dropped off my splices. I did follow the loose wire up to the voltage regulator. Anyway, as I was putting everything together and reviewed my list from Loadrunner, I discovered the spark plug wire...

    Ignition Coil Wiring

    I did, but the colors have faded. The only way I can do that for sure is to remove the plastic from the harness. I suspect that the other wire went to the regulator or the ballast, but since I went to a one wire alternator, there would be no need for that. I am going to install the new Flame...

    Electronic Trunk Lid Release

    My 1965 Newport convertible had an electronic trunk lid release. The button was in the glove box. I am sure it was factory, however it could have been dealer installed. Does anybody know where I can find one? There are tons of aftermarket kits out there, but I would like to stick with Mopar.

    Ignition Coil Wiring

    That is what I thought. I cannot figure why there is a wire off the negative going into the wiring harness. Both the distributor and the alternator are on the front of the engine, so all wires should be simple. Your reply has helped a lot. I think the lesson here is to buy a car that has...

    Ignition Coil Wiring

    My 65 New Yorker came out of AZ. I checked out the wiring in the harness and the wiring is so brittle, I had to run heat shrink up the wire to cover the brakes, but I am still having short problems. If I take the Pos wire off the coil, where dies the other end go? I have checked the shop...

    Hub to Hub Measurements

    Does anybody know the hub-to-hub measurements of the 1998 to 2003 Dodge Dakota, Ram, Durango, Charger or Jeep Cherokee? Looking to upgrade my front clip on my 54 Chrysler Windsor Town and Country wagon. My T&C measures 56 1/2. There should be a source for this data. I can find wheelbase and...

    Coolant Overflow Tank

    I agree, toss it my way! Antifreeze is expensive.

    Just for the record, I buy a lot from HF! Hard to beat their 20V tools!

    SCT tool from Eastwood

    Not sure yet. Feels OK, but you never know until you put some primer on it. However, there is a speed control on the tool. Slow it down. The closer I got to the bare metal the slower I turned it down. Not as hot as the car parked in the sun.

    SCT tool from Eastwood

    You know, I like Eastwood's "how to" and "product review" videos so I will always support Eastwood's efforts to get the job done. Go ahead and enjoy Harbor Freight videos.

    SCT tool from Eastwood

    I have to tell you that I am so impressed with my SCT from Eastwood. Just stripped a 54 Chrysler door and a 63 Jeep Commando hood with a 40 grit drum. Then I used the 120 grit drum on the Jeep hood. Took me about the time it would take to get these to the sand blaster! Anyway, I will be...
