Re: 66 Floormat

Hey Otto. I wish I had known you were so close. We could have gotten together. I am just north of SA about one hour. I have vintage cadillacs too. I made a cardboard template for my floormat.

Re: German imported -66 headlight problem

Pull up the carpet at the dimmer switch and you should see the wires plugged into it. There should be three wires. Blue, green and tan. Blue wire is 12v+, tan wire is low beam and green is hi beam. Put a jumper from the blue wire to the tan and green wires and observe. While you’re there I would put...

Re: German imported -66 headlight problem

In that case I’d try the dimmer switch first. Easier to come by than the main switch.

Try jumping the dimmer switch and see what happens.

Re: Accelerator Pedal 66

Thanks Bruce.

I bought one of your controllers and made a bracket for the kick down switch.

I can’t wait to finish the car and take her for a test drive.

Thanks.

Re: 69 Toronado Stalled

Get a large syringe (one for injecting turkeys before frying) and a small can of gas. When you put the new pump on inject gas into the line going to the tank before you put it on the pump. Do the same with the supply line. Inject gas into the line from the carb down to the pump. This will help prime...

Re: 69 Toronado Stalled
