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.

Modernized Stock Radio

Posted by Christopher Codd on September 13, 2017 at 5:18pm 5 Comments

I've been waiting a long time for somebody to make this so I'm really excited to share it. I've seen people run Aux to the original radio, but this goes way beyond that. You can keep the looks of the stock radio, but with modern amenities like Bluetooth, Aux, and outputs for Amps and Subs. I posted the website and Youtube link to a Cadillac radio below. …

How to tighten AC belt

Posted by Robert Gonzalez on September 11, 2017 at 2:30am 11 Comments

The shop manual shows some odd tool (j-9646?) that I can't seem to figure out what it is, and I just cant get enough tension to keep the belt from squealing. Any tips or tricks? 

I pulled  up on the compressor with my hands while my wife tightened the bolt. Sort of works, but when its hot out the squealing gets worse. 

Also, J-7316 belt tension gauge...  Thanks
