"Cool on Bass! Understood on fingers vs pick - I will use both on fill-in gigs for bass jobs - although I'm a lead guitarist by trade. I bought the Pertronix kit off of eBay after perusing several sites - I just typed in…"
"Cool Tim. I "only" play electronic bass. This pick I use sometimes, when my fingers are hurt...The only reason, why I have not put in the pertronix is: when this system does not work, you can do nothing at all. For my case, because I am…"
Thanks for reply and pictures! (I play Fender mediums BTW - probably same pick, different logo) cool ;-) Appreciated - I did same thing - replaced resistance wire with plain wire and put a 150 ohm ballast resistor…"
"Hi Tim (and others), I had the same problem with the resistance wire last week. My car runs terrible. So I decided to take a closer look at this wire. While the engine was running it was so hot, that I couldn't touch it longer than half a…"
"I followed up with the shops I recommended. Turns out they will not sell the wire separately. So I started checking into who actually makes the wire.
I am sending out a sample of the resistor wire to a company to check into having…"
"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."

So my 63 guide matic headlamps stay on low beam all the time. I have so far bypassed the system and everything works normal. I have been thru the trouble shooting in the manual but this is where the confusion begins.on my car when the power relay is powered I have low beam and when its not powered I have highbeam, this appears to be opposite what the diagnosis says should be correct.The wiring is all original and no wires have been mixed up.has anyone ever unplugged the 2 wire connector…
I hope someone can help solve these two electrical problems that appeared one after the other.
By way of background: The car, a '64 Eldorado has very limited use. It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January- that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…
