Anyone ever recalibrate their CC thermostat, and have issues with voltage to the transducer staying high? Trying to figure out why my vacuum to the servo won’t drop off when cooling, and…Continue

So, in my infinite wisdom, I decided to tinker with my timing, distributor, and air/fuel mixture.  I took a perfectly running engine, and threw a wrench in it. Why? I found it odd that the timing…Continue

"the ground that controls the transducer voltage is thru the 1/4 screws that hold the circuit board to the comfort control panel , and through the dial.  the dial is a variable resistor going to ground, if this is open, then that's a…"

"Thank you Mark. That was very helpful, and resulted in 10V across all three wires. I will try to find the grounds for the CC system, and try to figure out which one is the culprit."

"so let's try this:  with the control panel and the transducer both plugged in, test for voltage drop.     set your multimeter to dc volts and touch the leads on the back of the circuit board (the one that you replaced in your…"

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…

Thank you Kurt re: VIN location

Posted by Robert Pellow on April 19, 2021 at 1:07pm 0 Comments

I just wanted to say a thank you to Kurt for steering me to the tech tips page on V.I.N. locations.  Excellent information.  Thanks a bundle.

V.I.N. where?

Posted by Robert Pellow on April 18, 2021 at 1:41pm 6 Comments

Where can I find the V.I.N. on a 63 convertible?  The usual space at the base of the interior windshield on the driver's side has been decimated by weather.

63 Trunk detail

Posted by Bob Pontius on April 8, 2021 at 3:07pm 6 Comments

Jason, I liked the detail and information you have provided. I would like to do mine similar to yours. Can you help? Do you have trunk material? OPGI is sending the trunk product for my 63 Fleetwood. But it does cover the entire trunk as yours was done. If you do not have can you give me a reference? Thanks!! Bob
