Re: Seat belt warning light middle Console

My early 65 has the same light, I don't hear a click until I push the lens to turn off the light (at least that's how I remember it) sorry.

Re: OEM radiator Fan 390/428 w/ac

Re: Yellow Mystery Wire behind dash?! (65 hardtop).

I only found one picture with this wire. Looks like it's yellow to yellow. I have a pretty well optioned hardtop, maybe your car won't use that wire. good luck, Bob C

Re: hissing sound

I'd guess the hose got kicked off the neutral safety switch. Look under the lower steering column for vacuum hoses that go to a switch screwed to the column. JMO, good luck, Bob C

Re: Differential ratios

I believe the tag on the diff will have an "L" in the ratio designation(for locker), nothing on the door data plate. If I recall, there was only one ratio from the factory that was limited slip. JMO, Bob C
