  2. 53 new yorker trunk switch?

    The only thing i can think of is that it must have illuminated when the headlight switch was in the "parking light" or "headlight" position. It should not be on continuously. Find a "mercury switch" (not a switch from a Mercury) and install it in-line with the wiring, so that it only operates when the trunk is raised. Or, is the light housing not mounted on the trunk lit ?

  12. Tip O' The Day

    59, I know my car is not like your truck, but as you can see in this photo, my 6 cylinder radiator is mounted further back toward the engine because the mounting bracket is moved forward. Is there any way to move your V8 radiator mounting bracket forward ?
  13. Double fuel pump vacuum plumbing

    Ward, I looked in my service manual that covers the P-15, and it states that the convertible top is an electric/hydraulic system and doesn't say anything about any vacuum used to raise or lower the top. I can send you the schematic I have that shows the electrical wiring for the top mechanism. As to the double action fuel pump, the book just states that the wiper motor is connected to the vacuum port on the fuel pump and nothing else. There is no vacuum schematic. Sorry. The manual also states that only the P-17, P-18, P-19 & P-20 cars used the fuel pump with vacuum booster and it is supplied as special equipment, whatever that means.
  14. Wax or leave it alone.
