  1. 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.
  2. oh one more thing can it be a bad headlight switch plus notice that it is all one harness ...
  3. 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
  4. 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??
  5. 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,,
  6. 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

    dash lights

    Hi guys finally got my dash lights settled in . had a guy go though everything and put a new board in it then then re did my distuberater as it was 180 off and timed it and new water pump in and all the hoses , but my question is my turn singles work great and blink fast and bright but once I turn my head lights in they dim and slower . When I look they seem fine same with my dash light not as bright as I thought they should be, could it be a sign that my alternator is going or is that normal?? Thanks Terry

    window regulators

    Wanted to update them but the left back side the window goes down but have pull and crank and it comes up.E mailed OPG and said they actually no parts compatible with the 69 bonneville thought maybe taking it apart and repair them but strange such a common part but finding anything for this year is hard to find any idea where to find parts for it
  9. Hi gang making my to do list and wondering about my window regulators.. I have the OPG catalog and shows a few but not for a 69 Bonneville it does show the front L&R that would fit but nothing for the back side windows would they be the same?Not sure why it is so hard to find interior parts for 69 was even looking at door panels and sure enough none for that year of Bonneville they have everything for all the others.Or does anyone know if they can be inter changed ,I know back in the day you could do that, Thanks Terry
  10. Hi no tank is in good shape was told it was the sending unit and tried a couple after markets and didn't fit.It is round like a small coffee can .All the others at long and to big.Seem the tank is thinner and longer.A guy in NY said he could rebuilt for 225.00 so just wondering.I am taking to a another car guy who is going to check all the wiring in hopes it is a bad line or connection.
  11. Hi guys now that spring is getting closer thoughts are back to the cars..anyway think I have asked the sending unit before and best is to have it rebuilt since they don't make them for my 69 Bonneville.So here is my question does anyone know which tank I might be able to use .Was thinking of swapping out gas tanks it is over 250.00 to rebuild one and not much more for a new or used.Was hoping maybe a Catalina or Grand Pix might work. Tried for one out of summit that they thought would work but most are to big as far as the height.
  12. Hi gang just wondering if anyone has changed their instrument panel lights from the circuit panel over to the socket type cluster.My lights on dash aren't working and seems light everything is out but the turn signals work and the high headlight works but as far as anything else it doesn't.Have changed the switch and still nothing so figures it's the circuit panel and hate to pull it all off if I can switch it over..
  13. Hey guys now that I have the dist issue's more or less solved just wondering with the hei what would be a decent plug gap?As of now I an running around .035 and wondering if it should be more with the hei.
  14. Hi guys just wonder if anyone would where I can find the relay power for the wiper motor.Not that mine is bad but want to up date it knowing it's old like everything else.Would like to find where I could get the wring harness also.It has the original pump for the wiper squirter but doesn't work and seems they bought one and mounted it to the wiper motor and spiced into those wires and looking closer seen where it has either a power resister or relay and they plug into that and would like to get a new one.
