I have a perfect circle cruise control.  My speedometer is not working.  It turns going into the "Perfect circle" but not out.  When I fiddle with it, the speedo works for a short time.  The cables (from tranny and to dash) seem to seat correctly.  Any idea how to fix this?

Also, does anybody know where to send these out for rebuild?

Thanks

Nope, I graduated HS in 1979 and this was my HS car.  I have noticed your posts for years, I am in San Diego and the car is very good, but I think yours may be better.  Mine is a driver

No, but thank you for drawing my attention to that section.  The car was just a car back in the day.  It was not worth much.  Over the years when things wore out or broke, I just replaced them. I have changed my mind over time, the car has become much more valuable and I have started repair/replace with original or restored parts now.  I have been studying the thing for a whole day and I think the issue is the spring nuts on the cable drives, either the wheel cable, or the speedo head cable are not tight, the gears drop out of position, lock up and the speedo reads dead.

What I would really like is to have it rebuild and swap the thing out.  I probably can repair it, but a total rebuild would be nice.  I am also getting older and I don't really want to spend the time, or get under the car of get dirty any more.

'63 Eldorado trumpet horn + 2 standard horns restoration

Posted by Les Eastling on November 15, 2023 at 10:34am 1 Comment

My son, unbeknownst to me, had all three of the horns on our 1963 Eldorado completely restored. We had recently added the Eldorado trumpet horn to the two standard horns and the sound was not very good... we had heard good ones so we knew something was not right... but there was not much we could do to get better sound from the 3 horns. 

There is a restoration service called The Horn Works who my son…

Here it is:

 

The main factor is the length of the ceramic insulator from the middle of the spark plug to the tip (where the spark happens)  

The insulator…
