    The Grinch

    I like to find "little Old Lady" cars. Ones that have been driven to church and the store and not in much traffic. I have a 2007 Lucerne that I bought for my wife a few years ago like that. 25 K on the odometer and now has 52 K on it. Runs great and drives nice and hardly used. If she avoids poles and other cars, I can keep that one for a long time.

    Finishing my Buick Shop

    Sams Club sell these nice chrome plated shelving that will hold heavier things. I have a few sets of 4 in my garage and they will hold cylinder heads and A/C compressors. Pretty good deal for under $75 a set.

    We have driven 3K miles in the past 3 weeks but none of it was in my Buick or my wife's Buick. Hopefully I can stay at home this weekend and maybe get some driving in.

  7. Wednesday went and picked up Maja from school. She walked out and found me but when she go into the car her comment was "I thought I recognized that car but wasn't sure". Come on, how many 1960 Buicks are at school picking up kids.

    how do you work under your cars ?

    I like my Quick Jack. It lifts the 1960 Buick Electra just fine. I have thought for longer length projects to build a set of cribbing blocks to set under the tires. That way I will have access from the sides of the car.

    I use a 7000 lb quick jack but back it up with jack stands. I have had jacks fail on and was saved by the jack stands the car fell on.

    1960 electra A/C wiring harness

    That is the incorrect part, the one I need is the round on at the top.

    1960 electra A/C wiring harness

    Chris, that was my thought too so I bought one. It is different with the switches backwards. After some searching I found they have 2 different part numbers too. So now I have a spare heater switch. SO I am still looking for a Blower switch I dont know the part number the one I was given was incorrect. It is this big round switch on top.

    1960 electra A/C wiring harness

    Ha What fun this has been. I got the wiring but while I was removing the harness I found some of the issues with my AC (or lack of). Seems the rotary vacuum switch leaks and won't hold vacuum and the blower switch is iffy. Worked on high most of the time but not on medium or low. So once again, a short task turned into a search for parts and more money. Waiting for the parts I ordered last night to come.

    Ben, Do you park out of gear ? Another Saturday and another trip for lunch. Fairly boring as we didn't see much besides cattle, Llamas and a dead possum on the road. But it was a nice sunny day for a drive. Another 56 miles today for a total of 1759. Car is going to get some wiring changed this next week so hopefully I will have A/C again. We still got plenty of time to drive these old cars down here, so not giving up the challenge quite yet. It has been fun though.

    1960 electra A/C wiring harness

    Still having many issues with the A/C in my 1960 electra. It seems like when it get hot under the hood, the A/C compressor stops. Traced it to no voltage at the compressor. Working with the wires, they are old and the isolation cracks any time you move a wire. Plus there are splices and burn marks on the plugs. So I decided to replace the harness as opposed to fixing it. Especially after I found the harness at YNZ for $ 115. Its on order now, ordered it Monday and they shipped last night. Pretty good service and we will hope this fixes it. At least it will be easier to troubleshoot.
