    Mystery ignition

    Okay apparently I'm just a moron, it finally stopped raining again so I was able to go out with my test light and check out the car again, car started right up again, but wouldn't shut off again, took my test light, tested all the leads on the ignition switch, everything working fine, then I remembered when I put the new coil on that there was a wire coming from the coil going over by the horn relay that wasn't hooked up, and I thought maybe I pulled it off when I took the old coil off, well apparently that wire was off for a reason because it's bypassing the ignition somehow, I disconnected that wire again and everything is back to normal the car starts and shuts off just like it should, I'm going to have to get a wire diagram and find out what the wire is supposed to go to but apparently it's not supposed to go to the horn relay LOL

    Mystery ignition

    I have a cover on the car but we got torrential rain several days in a row with flooding, and then 8 in of snow on top, and then rain again so it's very possible it's actually rained almost every day for the past 4 weeks maybe I'll give that a try

    aftermarket radio and speaker installation

    In my latest acquisition, 1947 Dodge, I went to Walmart and bought a $20 AM FM stereo with a plug-in for mp3 , I believe it's called duel it comes with a little case that goes around it I guess you would call it, I took the radio out of that case mounted the case under the dashboard and then put the radio back into the case very clean neat-looking setup, then I mounted new style Pioneer speakers where the original speaker was, and I mounted a cheap lawn mower battery in the trunk and snuck the wires under the seats and carpet up to the front, works like a charm sounds fantastic, every once in awhile I throw my solar powered trickle charger on the back of the car to the battery. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Dual-Electronics-XDM16BT-High-Resolution-LCD-Single-DIN-Car-Stereo-with-Built-In-Bluetooth-USB-MP3-Player/54596679?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=0&adid=22222222228052737583&wmlspartner=wmtlabs&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=m&wl3=151780577244&wl4=pla-317947371767&wl5=9005385&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=8175035&wl11=online&wl12=54596679&wl13=&veh=sem&gclid=Cj0KCQiAuf7fBRD7ARIsACqb8w4ysCOSK6zPEbqLvHYhmleNqWa7nZpsiDSLLO_ey8Z3p3xyB-6jcdEaAi7fEALw_wcB

    Mystery ignition

    Yeah, I'm thinking maybe that's the problem, of course it's like $250 for a new Switch, my kingdom for a garage, it's just too cold to be working on it outside, and it gets dark too early

    Mystery ignition

    I haven't ran the 47 for about 3 weeks, because it's been raining everyday, and we also got 8 inches of snow , I tried starting it the other day it wouldn't start, I got out my test light and I had power going to the coil, but no spark coming out, so I figured the coil was bad, I put a new coil on today, made sure the wires were on correctly, the car started right up, but now won't shut off with the ignition it's a 47 so it's got a push-button for the starter, but the ignition seems to do nothing, but worked perfectly 3 weeks ago I had to pull off the coil wire to shut it off , any ideas??

    The purple people eater is slowly disintegrating

    so now I've lost a piece of cowl molding and a hubcap going to car shows
  9. Hit a large pothole on the way home from the car show on Sunday and lost a hubcap I was in heavy traffic, and couldn't pull over, I got home as fast as I could and grabbed my Jeep and went back, but couldn't find it, it's probably stuck in some ones grille or oil pan LOL !!!!!!

    Speedometer lube time

    I just did the one on my 47 3 days ago, it's much, much easier to stick your head under the dash and unscrew it, very easy to access, I did wd40 in the cable, then a drop of axle grease on the tip, and back into the speedo
