  1. Rear Axle Diff. Vent

    The Garage
    Noticed on my 63 Galaxie that the vent is blocked? I tried to remove and it just spins, assuming it's a press in style and not familiar with how or if you can remove. I tried to drill or clear the hole and it's like drilling stainless steel, barely made a dimple. What is the best way to...

  3. Front Windshield Install 63 Gal.

    The Garage
    I am going to add for anyone regardless of make / model. I wish I would have taken the glass out when we did the restoration! Not sure if it was due to funds available (most likely) or fear of putting in the new liner. The liner was one of the easiest things I have ever done. I did not...
  4. Front Windshield Install 63 Gal.

    The Garage
    I ended up hiring Safelite Auto, BUT will say my particular car was not easy to get the front glass in. Because I hired it, they told me I needed new glass, mine had a crack in it and they would not install. O.K.! That's my whole years funding spent on a new windshield, but it is nice! With...
  5. Front Windshield Install 63 Gal.

    The Garage
    2DR Hardtop Only the glass is original. We have purchased two new seals from different companies. The Dearborn seal was too short, I would not recommend them. Second seal was purchased from Steel Rubber, good fit. We think the rough edges of the glass could be preventing the bottom from...
  6. Front Windshield Install 63 Gal.

    The Garage
    Installed the headliner and back glass, then got to the front glass and found my limitation. Had a couple local guys helping who have been doing restorations there entire life and for the life of us this front glass will not go in. I even purchased a second seal as we thought the first may...

  15. Alternator issues

    Galaxie Pages
    Just a quick update: wasn't happy with the set-up using fender mounted regulator. Most It would ever show was 12V. Drove it for a week and didn't have any issues, other than head lights getting dim then bright? So went the easy route and purchased a converter regulator to make a one wire...
  16. Alternator issues

    Galaxie Pages
    this is going to sound dumb, but if the bulb is burnt out will the system not charge or not charge as much? I found my wiring issue, someone spliced in a separate harness and thus wires were different colors. I am still not getting more than 12V reading when started and drops to 11.5V when...

    O.k. caveat applies as I am not the quickest, but do finish. My 63 sedan has been running fine over the last 5+yrs concerning alternator charging system, we converted from generator when I built it and ran/charged just fine. Last fall I started having troubles, battery drains after a couple...
