Dash Trunk lid warning light and am/fm radio tell-tale lights

I installed the mercury switch trunk light and it works perfectly!  I half-expected the dash trunk warning light to work as well, but of course it doesn’t.   I crawled under the dash and there is no bulb or bulb socket present.  Did all models come with the trunk warning light, or was it an option?Also, I noticed recently that the am/fm tale-tale light have gone out.  Are those interior to the radio unit, or bulbs I can replace without having to remove the radio?I would like to thank everyone…See More

Hello I've been restoring a 63 for way to many years. Down to almost done, but have issue with trans linkage, when column in park shift rod 2 inches short. everything original. been trying to find picture of manual rod hooked up from under car to see position of linkage. was wondering if anybody has access for pictures.

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 2 Comments

And therefore it tends to sit there and grab and lunge a bit. So until now, i have been putting the car in Neutral at the lights to stop this happening.

I've had the car dyno tuned and…

Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

Posted by Chris on May 30, 2021 at 8:55am 1 Comment

Hello!

Newbie to the group here - we have already found tons of invaluable information on the board, so thanks! We are restoring a 1963 Series 62 Convertible. We are wondering if anyone knows of a source to buy the propellor yoke flange (that bolts to the pinion flange) for the driveshaft? One of our ears partially broke off. Not sure if we can buy just the yoke flange as an aftermarket part, or if it has to be rebuilt by a welder/fab guy? Maybe a salvage yard for a source? Again, any…
