    yeah, voltage regulator.

    The white rubbery crap is basically like RTV gasket maker, just a slightly different compound that doesn't have acid to rot electronics. This one looks a lot different...

    My Continental is an R134a conversion. The Mark VII with the same AC parts is a propane/butane mix. The explosive gas bomb system is a hell of a lot colder. I really should flush that out and...

    I'd be very unsurprised if the message center module doesn't just need an overhaul. Old electronics that live in a bad environment just don't hold together forever. I've had a lot of issues with...

    There are two kinds of R12 high side port, the Ford one, and the "everyone else" one. If what you have doesn't fit your car, you got the "everyone else" fitting. I want to say its 1/4 SAE flare vs...

    The early power antennas had limit switches in them to turn it off once it gets to end of travel so it *shouldn't* run the batt down but no guarantees. If that switch were leaking current it might...

    I think the thread is M8 as well, its an odd reduced head bolt. Normally 8mm head is on an M6 bolt, and I'm pretty sure those are larger than M6. M6 basically 1/4", M8 is 5/16".

    should also be one more or less below the brake booster where the vacuum line for the parking brake release went through. Might be easier to find that one from inside the car.
