    Strange problem this a.m.

    I just happen to look down and noticed the voltmeter gauge stop registering as I was driving this morning (the factory amp gauge is bypassed). Also the turn signals, the tachometer and wipers bombed out (everything else works...interior lights, horn, heat, cig lighter..) I stopped to park...

    Ballast resistors

    How to ID these old ballast resistors? The top one has "2.0 W", and "1.25 ohms" printed on the side, the middle one has "3658199" stamped onto the front (part no. ?). The bottom has absolutely nothing stamped or printed on it whatsoever.

    Exact starter switch

    Question: Where to score an exact fit steering column starter switch for 69-73 Chryslers? THIS Rock Auto pos I received is not an exact fit/replica of the OEM switch. They claim it is. It has eight holes/slots but only 4 pins. The original piece has 8 slots and 8 pins...1 pin in ea slot. Had...

    Spark Plug Wires, Who's/What's your prefered or favorite brands?

    I've burnt the crap out of the rear two boots (#7 & #8) from getting to close to the exhaust flanges...they're burned and cracked. Thinking about doing the "straight" boots this go around rather than the "L" shaped Accel 8.0mm wires I have now. Do the straight boots hold up longer?

    Turn signals

    What's the best place to find one of these? I bet (hope) there sold from a bunch of places. From what I understand the four-ways (hazards) and turn signals are controlled by two different flashers. This is the turn signal flasher. I think my died, the lights energize when the turn signal stalk...

    High torque mini-starter

    I think the ol' girl's starter motor is about to go AWOL, not sounding like it should when it cranks....I've had and cranked enough mopars to know when something sounds wrong, lol. I think this might be the original starter the car was born with, I dunno for sure. So anyways a great excuse to...

    Ignition switch

    This afternoon I inserted my car key into the ignition cylinder on the steering column and noticed a slight delay or pause before the engine started. Long story short I think the cylinder is malfunctioning. Just to be sure I rigged a squeeze trigger switch across the starter relay: squeeze the...

    Brake light gremlins

    Well this is a first for me, never had to deal with any electrical gremlins before. Situation: 20amp fuse protecting the brake lights (also protects door buzzer, dome/interior lights, etc.) is continuously burning out. I know the fuse has popped when I open the door with key still in the...

    Stock "points" dist. to Mopar performance electronic ignition system.

    I mistakenly posted the beginning of this odyssey over in the "engine, transmission & drive line" forum not realizing there is an "ignition/electrical forum" as I'm switching my 70' Newport / 383 motor from a "points" type system to an electronic "pointless" system driven by an...

    Chrysler Fuse block

    What is the best method of running power taps from the fuse block in a 70' Chrysler? I'm thinking of tapping off the ACC slot as I want to run aux gauges (sunpro voltmeter, oil press, water temp under dash pieces).
