The car was running fantastic today as we cruised down to the Clayton Harvest Festival Car Show and since I knew it might be a while before I can drive it as I replace the exhaust I changed out the metering rods to 4% richer for both cruise mode and power mode.   As good as it ran earlier now with the new richer metering rod jet configuration it is really running incredible.  I took it for one last spin before I start removing the custom dual exhaust and it is just really running great. It will be funny to hear it nice and quite when I get the new exhaust system installed, but couldn't help taking it out for one last blast before I start the change-out.  Just to back up a bit, when I had went from the ignitor II setup to the Ignitor III setup I returned the carb configuration to stock to get an ideal of  how the richer jets might improve with the III setup and it really makes a big difference!

You'll love it, when you open her up. So much power. With my 63 390 motor, I spanked a new truck with a power chip. It was a guy at work, and another guy at work witnessed it.  I heard laughter (directed towards the truck owner), and ( I never knew that old car had so much power)

The engine now has 347 miles on it (162,278 on the car), and changes the oil for the first time since the rebuild.  I had planned to wait until 500 miles were on the engine but was anxious to change it now that I had least have some miles on it.  I'm running regular "on sale" 10W30 oil and wills switch to a semi-sythetic or all synthetic after 1000 miles are on the engine...which at my rate will be some time! :-)

63 guidematic issues

Posted by maurice lapoiinte on November 24, 2019 at 3:10pm 0 Comments

 So my 63 guide matic headlamps stay on low beam all the time. I have so far bypassed the system and everything works normal. I have been thru the trouble shooting in the manual but this is where the confusion begins.on my car when the power relay is powered I have low beam and when its not powered I have highbeam, this appears to be opposite what the diagnosis says should be correct.The wiring is all original and no wires have been mixed up.has anyone ever unplugged the 2 wire connector…

Another advantage of the Pertronix III

Posted by Doug Scarrow on November 23, 2019 at 11:12am 1 Comment

   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.

By way of background: The car, a '64 Eldorado has very limited use. 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…
