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.

Beware OPGI Transmission Cooler Lines

Posted by Lee Martin on May 22, 2015 at 8:30am 2 Comments

The lines sold for 1963 & 64 Cadillacs are NOT good on all cars.  Specifically, they do NOT fit Series 62 or 75 vehicles. 

The lines they sell have threaded ends/screws on both ends.  Refer to your shop manuals and you will see this is NOT the correct fitting for the transmission ends.  A complicated setup involving beaded tube endings and sleeves with O-rings connected by rubber hose & clamps is required.

After two lengthly phone conversations with customer service it…

Pinion Angle

Posted by Lee Martin on May 19, 2015 at 3:49pm 8 Comments

My mechanic says the downward angle of my pinion has chewed up my driveshaft and will do it again unless we raise it.  Problem is there doesn't seem to be any direct means of adjusting pinion angle on 1963 Cadillac Series 62.  Anyone else go through this?  What was the resolution?
