I love the Help section. Its my go to place, always when i have a problem. However I do think its large. Sometimes takes a long time to find the correct post. If its there.

Not sure what could be done but a small idea that has been around my mind for sometime is that certain post could easily be collected into sub sections. Like 3xBattery or 5xHorn. On the other hand the full page with all topics is also impressive and often I find myself clicking on a topic and reading just for fun.

Always open to suggestions but do not understand what the subsection 3xBattery or 5xHorn would contain, or how it would be arranged? Can you give examples?  I will say one thing I like about having it all on one page is I can use the find (Ctrl F) to immediately bump down to help topics including those words. For example if I were looking for battery related topics, I just go Ctrl F + Battery, or Ctrl F + VIN, or Ctrl F + key word

As I said I'm not sure if its worth it or how it should be done.

3xBattery and 5xHorn are just examples of multiple topics that could be arranged into sub-sections. But my guess is its not worth it or should not be done. Only did throw the question out in the air. Most likely you or somebody else has a much better idea. Or keep it as it is. I do like the display as it is now with separate for each letter.

Didn't know about using Ctrl F. I have been scrolling everytime. Thanks.

CTRL F is what I use on PC's using Windows. It Ctrl C (copy), Ctrl X (cut), Ctrl V (paste) have been around since at least the 1990's. Different platforms will have different search tools.  Even without the search shortcut it only takes 4 scroll downs for me to reach the bottom on my PC. On my iPhone X it also only takes 4 finger scrolls up to reach the bottom. I would actually say we have plenty of room to grow the current format but if enough members want to split out into different pages we could consider. I just like the face all of the main help topics are on one page, and if you want to use a search you can go right to it.. but just a few scrolls to reach the bottom.  I have lots of documents on my phone and pc (e.g. the 2018 CLC International directory) that is hundreds of pages long and that almost mandates using the search function.

For those using a PC and not familiar with the short cut keys here is one of many links that will give you a refresher: https://www.best2know.info/basic-pc-shortcut-keys-2/

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

Source for Motor mounts and Trans mounts 1964 SDV

Posted by Norman Silverman on January 9, 2019 at 4:23pm 2 Comments

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…
