My car still has its "T-3"headlamps and they shed poor, yellow-tinted light. I'd like to replace them with something that most folks on this web site use, that would shed good light and don't heat up the wiring with too many amps. 

Survey says?

Although the radiator was not leaking, nor was the car running hot, I tool out the radiator today to have it boiled out and rodded out. Then I changed the oil and filter (filter is very easy to reach with the radiator out), then the thermostat got changed. 

I'll have the radiator back from the shop on Monday, and will reinstall it then.

Trunk Light Socket Very Strange?

Posted on December 4, 2018 at 10:14pm 2 Comments

I went to replace the bulb in the trunk light socket and was met by something I had never seen before: the socket appears to be made in two thicknesses. First a wide one with appropriate cut outs on the side where the bulb nipples fit in, then a long slender shaft (with a cardboard tubular insert) down to the positive contact. I've never seen anything like this. Only thing I can figure is that it is designed to have a metal rod inside the cardboard shaft that…

Where do the flashers go in my 64 Deville Convert.  I'm thinking that's why both turn signals stopped working.

Fuel loss in Carburetor

Posted by Ian Osborne on December 29, 2018 at 11:24pm 16 Comments

Lately if I haven't started my '63 in four or five days it seems that the carburetor has gone dry. The starter cranks for an extended period of time and the engine doesn't come close to firing. I have resorted to pouring a little fuel into the carb to save the starter and battery. This gets it started and it runs fine. It also starts fine after sitting a short while - a couple hours or so.

The fuel pump is new and there is always fuel in the glass bowl of the fuel filter. This, along…
