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 modified a oil fill breather cap, because I have excessive blow by on my 63 hearse. Oil was splattering in the engine compartment.

I gutted the cap and put lawn mower filter foam in.  The intent was to stop oil from exiting the cap, and let it drip back down the fill tube.

I got…

I like the lower, longer look the tires provide… Continue
