Hello All,

Took the car in for front end alignment and car remains at facility. The tech drove the car into bay and returned it to the same spot that I drove into. Paid for work and was ready to drive home: when I got in the driver seat noticed the gear shifter was not in park position, but down in reverse "R". Tried to move it up to proper position to start and get out of there. Nothing doing could only get the shifter to go to drive "D", no further. Stormed back into the office and asked when were they planning on telling me the tech broke something on my car. Argruments and alot of finger pointing and I left the car for them to figure how they would like to handle the issue. The car is a 6200 series, 1963 has anyone else ever had this type of issue or know anyway that it can be resolved. I do know at some point I will have to assist them in getting the car taken care of. Any help will be gladly appreciated.

any ideas how to clear the ugly black stuff shooting out from my tailpipe? After a long layover, it really messes up the garage floor. I assume its carbon but am not sure how best to react to it.…Continue

 So my 63 guide matic headlamps stay on low beam all the time. I have so far bypassed the system and everything works normal. I have been thru the trouble shooting in the manual but this is where the confusion begins.on my car when the power relay is powered I have low beam and when its not powered I have highbeam, this appears to be opposite what the diagnosis says should be correct.The wiring is all original and no wires have been mixed up.has anyone ever unplugged the 2 wire connector…

   Having tried both the II and III I can say the multispark feature of the III offers a smoother idle . It is also easier to install .Does not require removal of the distributor

Stuck at two red (dash) lights!

I hope someone can help solve these two electrical problems that appeared one after the other.

By way of background: The car, a '64 Eldorado has very limited use. It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January-  that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…
