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.

Rear Main Seal leak

Posted by Paul on October 22, 2014 at 6:54am 1 Comment

Does anyone have the cadillac serviceman from feb 1965 they can scan in and post a pic? I rear on another forum that 'At engine #123045 (Serviceman feb 1965)they changed the rear main bearing and seemed to solve the problem' I have replaced my rear main seal twice and it still leaks I have a 64 429 and I hear that making a notch in the bearing cap fixes the leak as the excess oil can leak down into the pan - but have no documentation to back this up.  Anyone have any info?

Passenger ash tray - 63CDV

Posted by Tom Bahner on October 21, 2014 at 10:54am 5 Comments

Hi all,

Kind of an unimportant thing but one that drives me nuts. How do you stop the passenger ash tray from rattling? Its also very hard to open. I see the latch mechanism but don't see any adjustment on it. Has anyone else ran into this?

Tired of trying to drown it out with the radio.

Thanks for any advice.
