Brighter Headlights. What to install that won't draw too much current.

My car still has its "T-3"headlamps and they shed poor, yellow-tinted light. I'd like to replace them with something that most folks on this web site use, that would shed good light and don't heat up the wiring with too many amps. 

Survey says?

Thanks. I will call on Monday. I have two old cars (64 SDV and a 66 Imperial cvt), so I'll use Russ' wire harness and Halogens on one of them, and this LED solution on the other.

Hoping you weren't going to ask, before I posted I looked up my invoice it has no part numbers only description set of 4 -5 3/4 stock with G5 LED bulb my invoice number is 106585. I walked in, told them what I wanted and they set me up this was on 9/25/2017 have had no problems, install very easy. I'm sure if you call and tell them what you want they will help you they probably have even better products by now. The lights I have look stock and really light up the road

Hi Bryan. I went on the site and am overwhelmed by the selection. Please advise stock number(s) you purchased. Thanks!

Kevin, we did talk. Behind your back...

Look, Russ is a good guy and its a simple plug and play set up.

Comment by Norman Silverman on December 18, 2018 at 2:42am

I went the Russ route and ordered his kit. We'll see how I do when I get it.

Thanks for all the VERY informative input.

Flashers

Where do the flashers go in my 64 Deville Convert.  I'm thinking that's why both turn signals stopped working.

Posted by Norman Silverman on January 9, 2019 at 4:23pm 2 Comments

Hi.

Where is the best place to purchase good quality motor mounts/trans mounts for my 1964 SDV? I see that Rock Auto has them for $8 and change, and others for $24 and change. Big difference. Is there a better place to buy them from?

Thanks

Fuel loss in Carburetor

Posted by Ian Osborne on December 29, 2018 at 11:24pm 16 Comments

Lately if I haven't started my '63 in four or five days it seems that the carburetor has gone dry. The starter cranks for an extended period of time and the engine doesn't come close to firing. I have resorted to pouring a little fuel into the carb to save the starter and battery. This gets it started and it runs fine. It also starts fine after sitting a short while - a couple hours or so.

The fuel pump is new and there is always fuel in the glass bowl of the fuel filter. This, along…
