n my '64 base convert, the tail lights are very dim. I wouldn't think that they would pass any current requirements. The tech checked the bulbs and they had been replaced with EDs. We went back to…Continue

dim tail lights

n my '64 base convert, the tail lights are very dim. I wouldn't think that they would pass any current requirements. The tech checked the bulbs and they had been replaced with EDs. We went back to incandescents, no better. We have not measured voltages. Any improvements available? Any brighter bulbs? The brake lights in the fins are bright and perfect, so it seems unlikely that the running tail lights would barely show.Thanks,JKSee More

where do I find a new and better motor?

Posted on May 24, 2018 at 11:43am 11 Comments

My '64 convert is getting better, but the engine remains questionable. Starts and runs well enough, powerful, but I think I hear a main bearing banging, the balance is not great and I'd like to upgrade to fuel injection if I can.

Are there dependable remans available of good quality? Are new crate engines available? Will more advanced engines from newer years fit?

Also, please, the diff ratio is quite high, lots of RPMs compared to today's cars. Are there diffs with lower…

Thanks

64 Recirc/Fresh Air Door Actuator replaced; FROM THE INSIDE.

Posted by Norman Silverman on February 4, 2019 at 11:21pm 8 Comments

I am happy to report that I have successfully replaced the Fresh Air/Recirc door actuator that is located on the blower box-and have done so without having to remove the blower box. I did it by taking out the glove box and attacking it from the back.  It took several days, LOTS of patience and some band-aids, but it is done. THE most difficult part -BY FAR- is to remove and then replace the screw that sits on the actuator arm, connecting it to the fresh…
