Another year went by, and I still haven't gotten around to touching my 64 Eldorado.     I don't think anymore that I ever will.  So after the year turns, I'm gonna try and sell it.   Not sad though,…Continue

"The plastic wire shell doesn't carry current, it only separates the brass terminals inside which squeeze the pins of the switch, so replacing the plastic will do absolutely nothing except cosmetically.  You need to fix the actual…"

"Tony, Basically every vacuum modulator ever made to fit a TH 400 is adjustable with a small allen wrench.  They adjust them at the factory for the application, and then paint stripes on them to show the factory setting.  You can save…"

Mark S Anderson replied to Robert Tor's discussion Hydra-Matic with some problems
"sometimes I think before I write.  In any case, its job is the same in the two transmissions, to open up centrifugally and control the pressure to the shift valves.  They are known to get sticky or leak around the rings.  Hopefully…"

Radio Belts

Posted on January 22, 2017 at 11:20am 10 Comments

I just finished repairing a few 66 stereos, and after fixing up the circuits to make them play again (another discussion), I was left with the usual problem; trying to find a belt that wouldn't slip.

I've tried:

  • 'glue together' kits -- they can break off at any time, so no-go.
  • rubber dial belts available online -- they stretch and…

Just getting started on a new set of seat covers, this is as far as I made it last night.    Only using vinyl, but perforations are pretty similar, and I'll have the patterns made for a leather copy later on.   I'll post pics up as I go forward.

baku wood

Posted on July 18, 2014 at 9:17pm 10 Comments

So I bought a sheet of paper backed makore (baku) veneer to redo the wood on my 64.  It seems like the original has a urethane clear coat.  What's everybody using for a final finish?   I have plenty extra to play with, I think I want to start with an automotive clear urethane, but what is the norm?   It says "hand-rubbed in the advertising, which would lead me to think it was lacquer, but lacquer thinner tests make me think they used urethane.  

Glue suggestions would also help, I'm…
