"Thanks for the tips and info. Good to know.  Agreed, the resistance wire could have been subpar for sometime or something else.  Although the hotter spark of pertronix at the higher RPM's is an…"

"Call the business's like American Auto Wire, Lectric Limited, painless Wiring. They should have a source for the wiring, as they make up the wire harness's for these cars if you send them your old harness."

Dash removal

Posted by Jake Mickley on October 9, 2019 at 12:06am 9 Comments

Hello everyone,

On a 63 CDV, if a guy wanted to remove the entire dash to get all the metal painted, and do some other things behind there, how would he go about doing that?  I checked here and the shop manual, but can't find a complete guide.

As always, and help or direction is appreciated.  Thanks!
