Hello chapter!

I would love to hear from anyone who lives or travels through the less friendly parts of the world. I live in Los Angeles, and I am never too comfortable leaving my 63 Convertible unattended.

What are your favorite Anti-theft devices for these vehicles and why? Any advice much appreciated.

Thanks!

-Tim

I remember somebody way back saying something about welding razor blades to the fender skirts to keep people from stealing them. Definitely not recommending this (major lawsuit), but I thought it was pretty crafty/terrifying.

Like your idea about the nss switch cut off switch a lot
After removing the coil wire , I like to chain the hood closed with a chain and lock if the car will sit for a period of time , in one location
So you cannot get to reinstall the coil wire
None of the above will stop a tow truck

Disable the ignition. A thief will not troubleshoot to see why the car wont start.

Remove the coil wire

Run a kill switch under the seat.  Run a wire off of the NSS (ignition feed) to the seat, and add a switch to the wire. Feed the wire back to the NSS.

A friend of mine ran a cutoff switch to the battery so that he could switch the battery on and off from under the seat of his Chevy.

Bad Guage?

Posted by Karl Schwarz on August 26, 2020 at 3:08pm 6 Comments

So I am troubleshooting my fuel gauge issue. I bought a new sender and tested it. It  it goes from 1-ohm (empty) to 35-ohm (full). When I test it (outside the tank), when the float is in the up (full) position it only moves the gauge to about 1/2 full. When at the bottom (empty) position the gauge shows empty.
