  1. Because of that if you ever have a problem you wont look at the knob cutoff as the problem and will have a hard time diagnosing a problem and solving it. They work on some cars and dont work on other cars. Definitely a no go on 6 volt cars tho. That screw is what is passing current and only where its touching the other thin parts. You can have cables as big as you're wrist but all the power is still trying to go thru a connection smaller then a pencil. It works despite the knob cutoff not because of it.
  2. Just use RTV for the rear end cover. Most modern card dont have gaskits. Sounds like shoddy work but is acceptable for most new cars. Should be ok for this car and might work better then a gasket anyway.
  3. Are you sure thats still a Packard Keiser?
  4. So wait wait wait. Your saying this kind of line for gas is an advantage to owning a gas car rather than being able to "fill up" at home with electrical? Or are you saying why bother with electric cars that have unused "filling stations" that are always available when you need them when you can have this kind of paradise instead? I mean no offence but I dont get this line of reasoning. No they do it on purpose. All about showing people whose boss I guess. Its the same water heads who shove their faces in their exhaust pipes to prove diesel is great and people are stupid for driving cars that get good mileage. Admit it most of hating on electric cars is because you dont agree with the politics of the people you think who own them. Its OK we all know anyway. You can say it out loud.
  5. I'm not going to base my car buying decisions on the fear of a end of the world event happening while I own it. If my survival is based on what powers my car then I'm probly already screwed anyway when the zombies come. Where do you live where such bad things happen that you need to flee for your life farther than the range of a electric car? Maybe time to move someplace where the end of the world doesnt happen all the time?
  6. So basicly "if we dont have 100% of the hurdles solved dont even bother trying." That makes sense. Why arent we all still riding horses again?
  7. Aluminum conducts electricity just fine. Many houses were built in the 60s with aluminum wiring.
  8. To me the car with the separate headlights looks ordinary. Seeing it from the side it could almost be anything. It goes from being distinctive to blending in. Isn't that what we hate about today's cars? They all look the same. I wouldnt be able to tell you what that car is without looking close at the grill. That isn't what I expect from a pierce.
  9. This makes sense to me. Its comparing 40 to 41 probly to show compound carbs was better.
  10. That seems like a very good price for a car that nice. Ac is a big plus and the big motor. Nice car.
  11. I always use a little paint thinner to remove the paint and markings on hoses and belts. Makes a real difference not seeing all those modern names and logos.
