    Radio Conversion feedback

    Redi Rad is the low cost solution for connecting the phone or tablet to the existing car radio. They work well and everyone I know that has one is satisfied. The downside is sound quality. A radio conversation is basically a modern Kenwood radio adapted to the old hardware controls. They sound...

    Thumb wheel radio

    I use a fine wire to close the gap in the gear and then JB Weld to keep it all together. About 90% of the time fresh capacitors bring these back to life. The other times are new clutch for the tuner, output transistor, or phonelic circuit board crack.

    63 Dart Radio issue

    The audio amplifier can become unstable and oscillate if voltage dips under 8, or 9V or so. A brief interruption in voltage to the amplifier can also make it take off and sing. May be driving around is aggravating a loose connection in the feed or ground? Since the radio has been serviced I'm...

    instrument voltage regulator

    I have used the LM7805 and Tobsun with good results, but keep in mind you get short circuit protection with the solution. Also, the solution is not a linear regulator, but rather a switching circuit similar to the original mechanical IVR. They did some great engineering...

    Portable Air/Fuel Ratio meter

    Mechanical engineer I work with made this and I tried it. It needs to be in the tailpipe with the car running for quite sometime before the AFR readings are stable. I think it worked well for a shade tree solution.

    Failure or success with Jeg's or Summit branded ( china ) parts

    I've got Summit Racing mufflers on the road runner and satisfied. The local mom and pop exhaust shop talked me into them and said they were the best bang for the buck. Having said that I prefer name brand stuff the majority of the time.

    Any post war Television Repairmen here?

    I was the 2nd to the last graduating class in vocational school for TV and Radio repair. That was 1981. I worked in a TV repair shop from 1979 to 1983. That vintage of TV had a ion trap for the CRT and the CRT is most likely very weak. The fly back is the next item to puke after that...

    AM/FM radio and wire identification

    Bendix radio. I have the factory service manual for the early series. Repaired many over the years and have one being shipped to me now for repair. These are AM radios that have kludge FM as a quick and dirty after thought. FM performance is far from good. I actually hate working on them as the...
