I’ve had the car for a couple months now and when closing the trunk the passenger side hinge has always had a small bind but no major issues or struggle to shut. I attempted to close it yesterday and it wouldn’t latch and then I noticed it’s way out of alignment. The drivers side is touching the body and the passenger side is out about an inch out. The hinges don’t appear to be bent, no broken welds, no apparent scratches where something shifted. Any suggestions or previous problems?

Look at the hinge pin, as it probably migrated out.  You will need to release the tension on the he by taking the opposite tension rod loose. There is a metal tab that holds the pin in place.

   Having tried both the II and III I can say the multispark feature of the III offers a smoother idle . It is also easier to install .Does not require removal of the distributor

Stuck at two red (dash) lights!

I hope someone can help solve these two electrical problems that appeared one after the other.

It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January-  that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…
