Does the car have the guide matic headlight system?

Yes

Rotate the knob on the dash eye to the off position and see if the high beams go off with the foot selector.

If not, disconnect the 3 pin connector at the guide matic relay under the dash by the steering column, and route that wire harness to the dimmer switch. Plug in the rerouted wire harness to the dimmer switch.  You have just now disconnected the guide matic system from the cars headlight system.

Halogen lights use more power. So best is to use a relay and take the current straight from the battery.

This drawing should help you on your way if you don't have one available:

I sell the relay wire harness for 70.00  but you need to figure out why the high beams are staying on first.

Flashers

Where do the flashers go in my 64 Deville Convert.  I'm thinking that's why both turn signals stopped working.

Hi.

Where is the best place to purchase good quality motor mounts/trans mounts for my 1964 SDV? I see that Rock Auto has them for $8 and change, and others for $24 and change. Big difference. Is there a better place to buy them from?

Thanks

Fuel loss in Carburetor

Posted by Ian Osborne on December 29, 2018 at 11:24pm 16 Comments

Lately if I haven't started my '63 in four or five days it seems that the carburetor has gone dry. The starter cranks for an extended period of time and the engine doesn't come close to firing. I have resorted to pouring a little fuel into the carb to save the starter and battery. This gets it started and it runs fine. It also starts fine after sitting a short while - a couple hours or so.

The fuel pump is new and there is always fuel in the glass bowl of the fuel filter. This, along…
