Re: Who's gonna fill their shoes?

Thanks GB, that was an enjoyable video. That video reminded me of my days working at the Custom Coach shop. We had some of the biggest Country Western stars as customers in the late 1970's.

That traffic looked crazy. One of my high school classmates, in the mid 60's, had a '42 Desoto Fifth Avenue 4 dr sedan. Boy, that thing was opulent: covered head lamps, cigarette holder/dispenser...

Be sure to use a good penetrant on the lock retaining screw before trying to remove it. Some of those can be pretty stubborn.

Re: No door key

I thought the door lock should have the same keying as the ignition switch and the glove compartment should be the same as the trunk handle. Maybe you just need a little lubrication to free up the...

The negative post on the coil, on a 12v neg ground system, should be connected to the points in the distributor. The points may be dirty and not making contact. You might try cleaning them with a...

Re: Newbie but am I in the right place

Re: '40 Headlight circuit breaker amps

I think it is 30 amps. It replaced a 30 amp fuse that was used on earlier models.
