Brighter Headlights. What to install that won't draw too much current.

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?

Thanks. I will call on Monday. I have two old cars (64 SDV and a 66 Imperial cvt), so I'll use Russ' wire harness and Halogens on one of them, and this LED solution on the other.

Hoping you weren't going to ask, before I posted I looked up my invoice it has no part numbers only description set of 4 -5 3/4 stock with G5 LED bulb my invoice number is 106585. I walked in, told them what I wanted and they set me up this was on 9/25/2017 have had no problems, install very easy. I'm sure if you call and tell them what you want they will help you they probably have even better products by now. The lights I have look stock and really light up the road

Hi Bryan. I went on the site and am overwhelmed by the selection. Please advise stock number(s) you purchased. Thanks!

Look, Russ is a good guy and its a simple plug and play set up.

Comment by Norman Silverman on December 18, 2018 at 2:42am

I went the Russ route and ordered his kit. We'll see how I do when I get it.

Thanks for all the VERY informative input.

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 2 Comments

Hi Everyone, been quite a while since i have been on here.

I have had an issue with the idle on my 64 Coupe Deville ever since i have had it.

With the Idle set high enough that it is smooth, but still a nice idle, the RPM seems only slightly too high for the stall of the Torque Converter. And therefore it tends to sit there and grab and lunge a bit. So until now, i have been putting the car in Neutral at the lights to stop this happening.

I've had the car dyno tuned and…

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.
