Re: High beam problem

I used a two-in-one relay for my headlights as the old wiring (I suspect) was overloading the circuit breaker built into the switch. Very scarey when the headlights went out without warning on a country road. Now with the relay system I have brighter lights that stay on I myself have bought the rel...

Re: High beam problem

Re: Electronic Component Upgrades

Replace components with new one will be fine also, the customer just prefers everything electronic and modern, however given the expenses and time involved (and the fact that the original operations are very effective as they are) I think we'll continue by leaving things well enough alone. Thank yo...

Re: C6SB 13A350.6/flasher button

I found one on E-bay, The button for the flasher one side is slightly longer to be able to press the switch inside, mine was broken, one of those annoying things that makes one wonder why/how it broke. The one I received was complete, swapped it out.

Re: Thunder therapy is good for the soul

Sometimes dealing with T-birds makes me think I should go into therapy - physical and anger management especially. But then I get behind the wheel, turn the key and for a while I don't have a care in the world until I hear something strange from under the hood or outside the car... My feelings at t...

Re: Alt./waterpump/PS belts

I took this pic. before I put in the new water pump and timing chain, I was looking at the picture and saw the cogs on the belt facing up in the pic. I was wondering if it was the right set up.

Alt./waterpump/PS belts

Does it matter what side of the belts ride on the pulleys of a 390 no A/C, smooth side or cog side?

Re: C6SB 13A350.6

The part on the right is the picture I first posted, with help I found where it goes, it then is fitted in the bracket and screwed into the bracket for the flasher, there may be other parts needed, I don't have them, the left side of the flasher button is extended, it goes into a slot that pushes on...

Re: C6SB 13A350.6

Thanks for the answers, I have the overhead console out of the car, it may be a broken piece from the inside of the unit, I'll look a little more thoroughly at the flasher unit to see if it was a one piece at one time.

Re: Overheating and at a loss

From what I understand 390s run hot. if your radiator had leaks and they were fixed from what I understand that tube the water runs through is now closed, leaving less cooling area. I just had a radiator fixed for leaks, then, of course something fell on it, back to the radiator shop, the owner said...

Re: Starting new Voltage Regulator

Some items in the Beast (my 66) not of the car's doings but by the PO's, are just a penny short of a nickel, for instance, my old starter solenoid was mounted horizontally with one screw, correct is vertical with two fasteners, I could go on, thought I know the readers would probably be bored to tea...
