"It seems the generator has gone faulty and only putting out 2.0v. I would guess I've damaged the internal diodes inside the rectifier."

"The cranking harness grommet dead center behind engine is probably your best route. You should see a rubber plug over on left driver side even if not used. It is just another option for running wires, etc into the cabin.  See oval plug/grommet…"

Pertronix Ignition Power Relay Installation.

Has anybody installed the Pertronix power relay for the Pertronix ignitor electronic ignition?I have installed one on my 63 car and as per the instructions I had to also install the isolation diode in the wire from number 4 terminal on the regulator to stop current back feeding to the new relay which would keep the engine running with the ignition key off. I now find that when first switching on the ignition (before cranking), the GEN light is lit but it's only very dim. Also when the engine is…See More

'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…

Spark Plug Heat Range

Posted by Patrick Westphal on July 7, 2023 at 10:00am 1 Comment

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…
