"explain how the resistance of a wire went down after he cut and spliced it?  this is impossible, he has a defective meter, so none of this can be trusted.  he needs a Fluke or to change his batteries."

Wire Splicing Basics - Hemmings Article & Recommenditon with Video

I have to say that Hemmings has some great Help Topics and thought I might incorporate a few on our Help Topic Page. I thought I would start off with a very basic topic -- Wire Splicing.  I will also include a video with my recommendation - the "Lineman's Splice". Click on this link for a run down of the basic wire splice methods and a comparison:…See More

1963 & 1965 Distributor

Posted by Martin McKercher on November 9, 2021 at 8:34pm 5 Comments

Hi all
I am looking to have an aftermarket distributor made for these year models.
I have fitted a Holley Sniper to my 63' 390 & want the Sniper to control the timing.

This is in the very early stages so I am looking to see if it is viable.
I understand the purists might see this as sacrilgious but the Sniper has made my car soo much better for me.
I am asking to see if there is any interest?

The ad states aqua exterior and green interior but unfortunately there is no pic on the cowl tag.   

Is the exterior color ’Frost aquamarine’ and interior ’Beryl’?

Or is the exterior green, ’Frost green’ and interior ’Emerald’?
