    Good news! Auto City Classics told me to sent the motors back and they'll send me a good pair. I hope this isn't an ongoing problem with these things.

    In doing some research I found out that these older motors work differently than newer motors. On new power window motors you reverse power and ground on the two leads going to the motor. That is...

    I've been working on wiring lately and have been stringing wires to build a harness from scratch. So far I counted about 65 wires that come down from the dash into the console area, but some of...

    I ended up cutting off the over-hanging, unused 1" of that stupid connector, and zip-tying the excess ribbon cable to the top of the column. That makes the connector somewhat smaller and it fits...

    I fixed the hazard switch misalignment today :). I got some new 12-24 screws so I didn't mess up the stock ones in case my fix didn't work. I went to two hardware stores before I could find any and...

    You're probably right but I want to do something with the excess cable. I might zip tie it to the column to keep it from flopping around. Right now I'm wiring it up and I still have to paint it,...

    The body mount bushing sleeve is 7/8" ID and the bolt is 3/8" OD so the most the body can move fore and aft is +/- 0.25" from center. Since there is a tolerance on each body mount position, it's...

    Well the turn signal switch has big holes in it already, but the recess the screw head fits into is pretty snug around the screw head, preventing any rotation of the switch. I went to try to find...

    Here's my switch as it arrived....

    Maybe I just need to enlarge the screw holes in the turn signal switch a little and rotate the switch and call it good. :p

    Turns out that the column I have in the Hemi55 is also a tilt column, and the tilt lever installs in about the same position. So that tells me that they're all like that, and it's assembled...

    GM column connector

    Why did GM use such a huge, ugly column connector for only 8 wires? The thing is like 4 1/2" long and the FR column has a foot of extra "ribbon" cable coming out of it. What are you supposed to do...

    How cool!

    Shouldn't you be wearing eye protection since you don't have a windshield? Maybe legally you could squeak by if you did. :)

    But I guess since you're driving without registration,...

    First thing I'd do is try to identify the manufacturer of the system (there aren't that many) and give them a call. One system may not be set up to work exactly like another.
