  1. 64 Galaxie, Generator to alternator conversion help!?

    Galaxie Pages
    So, after hours of tinkering with no avail, I can't figure out what I did wrong or the correct way to set this up. I'm trying to swap out the stock generator for a 1g ford alternator I had got for cheap, so I bought what looked like an alternator bracket that would fit. And here I am with it all...
  2. 64 Falcon Electrical HELP NEEDED

    Falcon Pages
    I have a 64 Falcon Futrua 4Dr and the brake lights will not come on. The headlights work just fine but they are about the only electric thing that currently works. I've checked all the bulbs and wires they seem to be in good condition. Not sure what else to check.
  3. 64 Galaxie brake light diagnosis help!?

    Galaxie Pages
    Hi, I've been trying to figure out the problem with my brake lights and have come to the conclusion that I don't really know what I'm doing. The running lights do work, so the bulbs seem to be in working order. I changed out the brake light switch with no difference in result. I've cleaned the...
  4. Convertible Top

    Galaxie Pages
    I have a 1966 Galaxie 500. The convertible top motor stopped working. I tested the wires going to the pump and they showed close to 12V (11.4V or so). I assumed it was a bad pump. Removed the pump and tested the ground wire to the negative battery terminal and the red and yellow wires to the...

    Any suggestions would be great. Battery can be fully charged and if left hooked up its flat dead in 20 minutes. All interior lights are off headlights etc. Something major has to be drawing on this thing and I need suggestions. Have been told starter, alternator, but what could sucj that...
  6. Need a good 67 Galaxie Mechanic

    Galaxie Pages
    Hi, I live in central NH and am working on a pristine 67 galaxie convertible. It's been in the family since new, and put up every winter. I have done most of the mechanical work (replacing timing gear, oil pump, etc) but am now getting into electrical. I can do basic wiring, but would like...
  7. Brake Light Troublshooting

    Thunderbird Pages
    I recently bought a '64 Hardtop Thunderbird that was partially restored in the late 90's and pretty much has been sitting ever since. I got the engine running after cleaning out the old gas and rebuilding the carb, then had the master cylinder and booster rebuilt--so the car runs and stops...
  8. Turned key to start, everything's dead: Bad Starter Switch or...?

    All Ford Techboard
    My falcon's been sitting for a couple weeks while I fixed a leaky exhaust manifold and did a little wiring work. Wiring still in-progress, but wanted to check the exhaust leak. Things were fine in the "ON" position, but as soon as I kicked it over to "START", it everything went dead. No starter...

  10. Electrical woes

    Galaxie Pages
    63 500XL, 390. Appears to be all original. Car was hard to start…found the carb base gasket pretty well gone, hopefully replacing it (yesterday) will help. Anyway, on to the electrical. Like I said, car appears original, so I believe that starter/starter cable/generator is original. I have...
