Not 63 or 64 related but still neat to see these magnificent beasts assembled. Also neat to see a factory fresh vintage car.

My son told me the other day “Dad you are old school “ nobody does things as well and efficiently as you and mom do

“Those days are gone ! “

We were talking about how inefficiently the people were that were processing a loan we applied for at the bank of all things 

They made  errors every  single step of the way until the loan was finalized taking much longer than the process should take 

Asking us for info in front of them that  we submitted they had already— more than once 

The work force is just not what it use to be with the focus being on doing a given job to the very best of your ability but instead doing as little as you can get away with instead 

Not sure exactly what the problem is but  a lack of personnel motivation possibly due to Covid -19 and a lack of return on investment in a given job  or a lack of education have to be a part of the puzzle 

There is an obvious  a problem going on today in  business with  qualified help  and the motivation to improve your life by working hard in your given field 

Hard work is the key —to developing your success and wealth to be  taking good care of your family but that motivation seems to be lost these days  

It might have something to do with  younger people finishing there  higher education and having to be living in there parents basements for what ever reason that is happing 

Enjoy

Cool video! You can tell the workers had pride in the Cadillacs they were building!  This was a nation almost 100% committed to producing a quality product. Fast forward to 2022 and it is an entirely different story. Beyond the robots, watch people in all trades as they go through their work day.  75% of their time is staring at their phone, 10% is ramping up to figure out what to do, and 15% actual work. I've seen it in construction crews, retail stores, etc. I guess assembly lines still have to have a higher level of concentration but bet it is nothing like this video.  Even go to the gym ... I know we are not supposed to judge but I see the majority of people that will go to a machine, do 10 reps, then sit there playing with their phone for 10 minutes .... and tying up the machine!    But, these are also often the same people I see circling the parking lot to try and get an up front parking lot at the gym! Sorry for the side rant. But these people on this video are alien to workers I see anywhere and everywhere today ... at least for the most part! There are still some good workers out there.

Temperature gauge not working properly

Posted by SK on March 23, 2022 at 2:43pm 2 Comments

The temperature gauge of my 63 Eldorado does not work properly.

It goes slowly all the way up and stays there, while the true temperature is around 155-160 F (water in the radiator and/or the top of the thermostat housing).

Where should I start to solve the problem? The gauge itself, the temperature sensor, or the wiring? Or something else? The sensor is a new (aftermarket part)…
