"Without the 3 prong switch, 2 circuits are tied together meaning grounding one will ground the other. I guess you can chose whether to tie the map light to the front courtesy lights or leave it as is. A 3 prong switch is what you need to separate…"

"Russ, do you think I jumped the wrong prong on the two prong switch, effectively making it a one prong)? I could move the jump to the other prong?)"

"I had an issue once where turning on the map light would also turn on the courtesy lights. It was the the pin switch allowing grounding of the courtesy lights. If not the pin switches, trace out what is allowing ground to all lights."

My bench seat switch circuit is dead.  I found the hot wire cut under the seat, but cannot locate the other end of the hot wire.  The wiring diagram indicates the it is connected to the rear cigar lighter hot. (See attached)  Is this right?  Does anyone have any thoughts about where I may be able to locate the or, or splice in?  Thank you.See More

63 Trunk detail

Posted by Bob Pontius on April 8, 2021 at 3:07pm 1 Comment

Jason, I liked the detail and information you have provided. I would like to do mine similar to yours. Can you help? Do you have trunk material? OPGI is sending the trunk product for my 63 Fleetwood. But it does cover the entire trunk as yours was done. If you do not have can you give me a reference? Thanks!! Bob

Car lift and jack stands

Posted by Les Eastling on March 23, 2021 at 10:00am 4 Comments

Someone asked what kind and I didn't have the info at hand, so here is a link to it and also a link to some tall jack stands we use to add more stability to the car and an additional safety factor. There is something about getting underneath one of these cars that makes me a little nervous! …

Leaky Freeze Plug

Posted by Lee Martin on March 22, 2021 at 12:49pm 7 Comments

Just developed a significant leak coming from a freeze plug right over the starter.  Would this be considered a "cam plug" i.e. like Dorman 17616DS?  Our cars have multiple sizes of plugs on engine block and I want to get the right one.  Also, does anyone know how pricey this is for a shop to fix?  Thanks!
