Re: Starting new Voltage Regulator

a solenoid differs from a relay in that a solenoid has an iron core that actually moves, a relay typically has a point(s) that bend to touch when the field is energized. JMO, Bob C

Re: Wheel alignment irregularities

Do you have the setup and use instructions? I noticed you don't have the tool centered on the wheel. The picture could be misleading, but the bubbles look off. Also, the car should be on a level floor, is the rear raised as well? The Longacre tool is also bubbles, you have to got through a sequence ...

Re: Radio/ speaker issues

According to the wiring diagrams in the 64 shop manual, both the AM and AM/FM radios had that 4 wire connector, but not all cars had a rear speaker.

Re: Fuel line dries out

actually the fuel pump has 2 check valves and a diaphragm. I suspect after 2 weeks of sitting evaporation is the problem. I go through the same with my own car. Todays replacement fuel pumps aren't too swift, I wouldn't be surprised if the check valves seeped a bit over time. JMO Bob C
