"Made some drawings to make it easier to understand. In the original system the power goes from the battery to the light switch and then to the lights. 54-55 year old cables into a 54-55 year old light switch is not ideal as there is a lot of current…"

"Using a relay will reduce loss of current and minimize risk of fire.  Its very easy to install new lights with power straight from the battery controlled by a relay."

"Thanks, Kevin. I am not an electrical whizz, so anything with relays is  out. If there's no solution other than that, I guess I'll just buy replacement bulbs (gotta be brighter than 54 year old bulbs). "

Brighter Headlights. What to install that won't draw too much current.

My car still has its "T-3"headlamps and they shed poor, yellow-tinted light. I'd like to replace them with something that most folks on this web site use, that would shed good light and don't heat up the wiring with too many amps. Survey says?NormSee More

I recently took my car to a “Cadillac” “Specialist here in Los angles CA.

After leaving my car to diagnose my steering column for not shifting properly. I get this txt from the shop owner. Mind you I just got the car and wanted to at least shift from the column without having to shift for the engine bay. Also wanted to get a price on dash lights to work. Basically I’m trying to feel out if he’s putting gravy on the labor.

Although the radiator was not leaking, nor was the car running hot, I tool out the radiator today to have it boiled out and rodded out. Then I changed the oil and filter (filter is very easy to reach with the radiator out), then the thermostat got changed. 

I'll have the radiator back from the shop on Monday, and will reinstall it then. 

Still having…
