Wiper Motor Relay Coil Sticking

All,My 1963 Series 62 convertible's wipers sometimes stay on after I turn them off. This is annoying as I usually have to find a speedbump or pothole to hit to turn them off!The issue is that the relay coil (marked in image below) is sticking. Is there any recommended lubricant or other fix to prevent this coil from sticking? It looks like it would be a hard and tedious job to replace it, if I could even find the right coil.Any and all thoughts appreciated!Karl SchwarzCentreville, VA…See More

"I would pull and test the gauge before replacing it. 15 ohm should put it right at the half tank mark and 30 ohm just past the full mark. "

Bad Guage?

So I am troubleshooting my fuel gauge issue. I bought a new sender and tested it. It  it goes from 1-ohm (empty) to 35-ohm (full). When I test it (outside the tank), when the float is in the up (full) position it only moves the gauge to about 1/2 full. When at the bottom (empty) position the gauge shows empty. This is the same issue I have when I fill and then use the gas in the tank - the gauge never reads ore than half full. Based on what I've read on this thread it would seem like the gauge,…See More
