cornering lights

Neither of my cornering lights are working. I started by focusing on drivers side. I removed the entire assembly and cleaned it up, replaced the wire to the socket, cleaned and lubricated the socket and spring. Made sure light now worked by attaching directly to battery terminals. Reinstalled assembly and plugged it back in and no work. Attached a separate ground directly to the battery terminal and still no work. I checked orange power wire coming in and no power. I have the ignition turned…See More

Comfort control wiring

I have a red (looks pinkish next to yellow in the picture) wire going to the back of the comfort control from the fuse panel with a 25 inline fuse. As always someone as added this on. I can’t find out why it would be there since manual and Tim Groves booklet says power is delivered through a yellow wire. All wires are accounted for from the books but this extra red wire that goes to this terminal. Any ideas?  Thanks Larry…See More

A few questions on the resistor wire, what color is it in the pic? The yellow/blue or black? And connecting to the ACC on the fuse box seems easiest way to go with the new switched wire, but where…Continue

Who rebuilds original AC  accumulator dryers for 1964 Cadillac?

I would prefer to be as original as possible. Thanks

'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…
