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.

The centrifical advance

Just sitting , thinking i should clean and grease the weights in the dist cap just under the rotor

Best to keep them moving freely ,for smooth performance

Often done at fresh tune up time



Moisture in a dist cap ,will damage the terminals in the cap ,causing the engine to crank and not fire up

Mostly with the white metal cap terminals ,which i will no longer ever use

That is why i will only use the brass terminal caps ,which is what the car came with (all GM cars… Continue

The alternator was putting out 14 volts right after start up , ( been topping off the battery charge )then saw the gen light come on at the dash

When i checked the voltage again it had dropped below 14 volts ,which it SB

Oddly --slightly reving the engine ,shut the gen light off

This made me think ,check the ground connection ,which is the very first thing to do with ANYTHING electrical with these cars

I inspected the… Continue
