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.

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…

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

Source for Motor mounts and Trans mounts 1964 SDV

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

Norm
