  1. this is the only thing left on top of the manifold it scews in and has a rubber cap on top of it.Wondering if I can use any of the plugged holes to add a temp senser and using a gage?
  2. Hi guy was doing some maintance on my 69 bonnevile like putting in a thermostat that was never there when I bought the car and was running good before that. Last nite I wanted to check for leaks and make sure it opened up.All of sudden it started to stumble and spitting out gas from the sides and fumes or smoke came out also and flooded out.Waited a little and tried to start it again but only did the same thing.It is a Q-jet and it is orginal so wondering if it just died on me and need a new carb. The only other thing I did was change out the valve check that in other cars was connected to the vlave cover but on this car was in the manifold..any thoughts?/ Thanks Terry
  3. Thanks Frosty thought it would be in one of those places but turns out who ever had the car before never put one in they plugged the one on top and nothing on the side of the manifold. Went to change the thermostat and seems they never put one in there either not sure why.
  4. Hi guys been looking all over and can't seem to find the coolnet temp sencer on the mortar.I know on a chevy it it is on the drivers side block wanted to change it and put a new one in..
  5. Hi guys.I am trying to replace my furring trim on my door panels.U tube has shown that you can loosen one of the bolts slide it down some and your windows will drop enough to get at the screws.I have tried that and doesn't seem to work.But does look like if I roll my window up it hits a stop.Wondering if I take the bolt out will the window roll up higher to get at the screws to the strips? thanks for any help Terry
  6. Hi guys I am trying to replace my window trim felts and running into a problem. took the door panel off and rolled the window down to get to the felt.And I tried to loosen the screw that I thought would let me lower the window more to get to the screws but would only come down maybe 1/8th more. They say it should of came of came down as it was suppose to be the screw for the window stop.I felt all around and couldn't feel any kind of stop .Anyone have any tips on where it might be or rhe best way to get the window down another 1/2 inch or so.. Thanks Terry
  7. Hi guys just wondering of anyone might know how to lower the windows enough to replace the side fur trims They were showing on U tube but it was from a chevy and when I tried it didn't work. Was about lowering the window stop enough to get at the screws Thanks Terry
  8. Hi guys have a quick question I am finally going to have my interior restored and found a company that does this. I have looked and cannot find door panels for a 69 Bonneville so our best bet is to have them customized somewhat. I took them off so he could make a mock up of one to see if I like the style and going to clean up the inside but now for the question. My door handles to open the door swing back and forth and not up and down like a different car I once had can these be modified to up and down. The reason I am asking is the old door panels the handle sites inside what I call a cup .Or if I get a new arm rest molding and a the different style of handle if that will work.
  9. Hi guys am goping to replace my parking light warning switch since the old one is pretty bad and my brake light stays on. any way the wire is broken off from what ever is left of the switch and my question is does the wire that goes to the switch go to back o9f the fuse box or elsewhere? The wire is old and kind of brittle so thought I would change that out also.Thanks for any help Terry
  10. Hey Frosty got it I cleaned the sockets and the grounds and followed the ground wire to where it was screwed to the body and found who ever had it sprayed under cover tar in parts of the trunk and just put the ground back on so took it off and sanded it bare along with the grommet and poof lights up like the other side.and your right it is really hard to find anything for the Bonneville but a guy on e-bay said the Catalina is just about the same and more parts out there.
  11. oh one more thing can it be a bad headlight switch plus notice that it is all one harness ...
  12. Hi Frosty I will try to clean them first I did have to change one socket out last spring because I got nothing and that is the brightest light on that side will clean and check everything I know they look old and sometimes age will slow the current down at first I look for a new harness but can't seem to find anything any where ...They aren't as bright and the big thing people don't look anyway so have to get then better
  13. Hi Frosty let me see if I can pick your brain one more time. Had it her out all week it runs great and now having fun with it again then my GF noticed that my passenger taillight and brake light were very dim compared to the driver side so had her hit the brakes and sure enough one side is about twice as bright.I changed out the bulbs and still no different so wondering now is the sockets are just old and worn and need replaced??
  14. Hi frosty yes the new switch needed a ground the old one was a one wire unit finally found a good place to ground in the back and works now .Did notice there wasn't anything to light up under the dash thought maybe at least one light gonna look again if nor Ames has a kit to install one down the line,Oh by the way took it last April and the car guy redid the some of the wiring in the dash and he also installed a new circuit board and able to re do the distributor and got that right he also added dual exhausts so am up and running till I start to fool around with something else but the puzzle is coming together,,
  15. Hi guys I started to fool around with my courtsey lights in my rear seat having a convertible they never worked even when I put in new switchs on the door so took it apart and the switch on the arm rest looked pretty shabby so ordered a new one and since this was a one wire on the old was told would need to ground this one having two wires, But the problem is I am blowing fuses every time I connect them I would check with a light and seemed fine but as soon as I would connect the two socket wires bam there goes the fuse.I even reversed the wires on the new connector but the same blown fuse. My last thoughts could it be a bad socket now it is the only thing left that isn't new. I haven't checked the other side yet thinking the problem would on the side with the main wiring.Any ideas would help not that it has to used but wanting to get another piece of my puzzle working Thanks Terry
