Hello Everyone, other than putting batteries in a flashlight my electric background stinks. I have a 12v 45rpm record player I want to mount to the bottom of the dash above the transmission hump. I can do that . The speakers are not an issue since the player sends out a signal on 1600 am. I can attach the ground wire to the dash. The power wire is to be hooked to the postive side of the fuse box. It has a 5amp fuse on it. I figure I could stick the wire with connector into a clip holding a fuse like for the radio. What I don't know how to do safely is check the box for the postive side. I would appreciate any assistence..but  explain it to me like I'm 4 years old..and as if your looking at it while laying on your back looking up at the box so you can read the writing on it...Thanks again Tom

All the fuses are going to be hot, or positive.   Look on the side of the fuse box for a terminal, where you could plug in the hot wire to the record player.  There should be 2 terminals where you could plug in an accessory.

Steele Rubber rear window gasket

Posted by Mike Foose on July 29, 2014 at 4:45pm 0 Comments

I bought a new rubber gasket in May for my back window (63 series 62 4 door).  Got all the rust fixed and ready to install but its about 1/3 the size of the old one (also from Steele - must have been replaced prior).

They both have the same part # written on them.  Has anyone else had this issue with parts from them?  The pics tell the story - the outer one is the 'old' one, inner is 'new' (and WRONG).  I sent it back and am waiting for a reply but its now holding up progress and I…

I have spent gob's of money trying to fix the old carb and trying to keep up with the points and dwell then  I ran across this article and about $500 later this thing runs better than new this article is just outstanding and if I would have done it right away I would have saved at least a grand.. Thanks Jason

Need neutral safety switch

Posted by John C.Churchill on July 28, 2014 at 1:11am 2 Comments


My 1964 Eldorado's neutral safety switch has sprung a vacuum leak, and it looks like I will need a replacement.  It has the Tilt/Turbohydramatic switch, a #653 (Part No. 1993653, I believe).  Anyone out there have a good one and, if so, how much will it cost?  If not, any suggestions where I might find one?
