Wednesday May 30th - Breakfast Tour.

Our first Breakfast Tour for 2018 will be on Wednesday May 30th.  Meet at the McDonalds on Old 231 South at 8:30am  for a short tour to breakfast at an outstanding newer restaurant dedicated to the morning meal.  It's even called The Breakfast Company.  You won't want to miss this terrific spot.  You should easily be back home by 11:00am.  

Tech Tip

 

Many years ago wiring in automobiles and trucks was covered with a rubber and cloth like material.

This was state of the art at that time but over time the rubber material would dry out and become brittle, cracks would develop and eventually bare wire would become exposed, leading to shorts in the wiring, possibly causing fires, not a good situation to say the least. Some vehicles even fused the lights and to have your light go out at speed on a dark road will get you into a bad situation real quick!

Other manufactures used circuit breakers which would reset in seconds giving some margin of safety.

Inspect your wiring, if you have breaks and cracks in it you would be wise to replace it, the old style is still available but very expensive, use it if you are wanting to maintain a high level of authenticity.

Plastic covered is very durable and a lot cheaper, both types are available through antique auto suppliers, they can furnish reproduced wiring harnesses, get on line and do a search for your vehicle.

Now get a wiring diagram if possible for your vehicle, this will make the job a lot easier, if you don’t feel at ease with doing it yourself get professional help. 

(I have rewired two cars and it really was a learning and fun experience!)
