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.

I currently have a 63 amp alternator in my 64 Coupe De Ville, however, I think it's going bad. Is there an easy test for an alternator?

Hi All,

I wanted to share my experience converting my factory air system to 134a refrigerant, hoping it will save you time and money.  I got my system charged professionally and it works amazingly well, blowing ice cold at the vents.  Here's what I did:

I started with a call to Old Air Products (oldairproducts.com) from Texas.  I'm usually the guy who researches everything alone and then buys the parts online without ever interfacing with a human, but A/C is one of the only…


Windshield wiper motor help

Posted by Russ Austin on June 11, 2016 at 3:51pm 4 Comments

I pulled a wiper motor from a 62 Fleetwood today, and did a bench test. It didn't work, so I investigated.

As usual, it was the latch arm sticking from 50 year old grease.  A quick spray from a can of brake parts cleaner got the latch arm moving again.   The wiper motor works great…
