Power Steering Hose Nut

Master Cylinder Install Question

Question for those of you who have installed an aftermarket Bendix master cylinder on their Bendix brake booster, I have a question.The aftermarket unit has a groove around the periphery of the puck that inserts into the booster. Should an O-Ring be placed in the groove? If not, will the booster leak vacuum? What is your experience? If an O-Ring is required, then what ID/OD? My OEM MC didn't have a groove nor O-Ring. Thanks.See More

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…

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…
