OPG now shipping right hand mirrors

Posted on February 23, 2017 at 9:56am 22 Comments

On 12/14/15 I placed an order with Original Parts Group for a right hand mirror for my 64. They told me they were back ordered. Every few months I would email them asking about the mirror and got the same response. After a year I gave up. Yesterday I got an email saying they shipped the mirror. It will be a little project to install but nice very nice have.

Starter Solenoid replacement-how difficult? Where to buy?

Posted by Norman Silverman on August 20, 2019 at 8:24pm 8 Comments

Hello All.

All battery cables are on tight and the battery is good. So, I believe this problem is the solenoid. Where do I buy the right solenoid and is it necessary to remove the starter in order to swap it out? …
