Frequently Asked Questions
Clock and Radio Conversions
Do you restore components vehicles other than 1960 – 1980 Mopars?
Do<br /> you repair cassette or 8-track tape player mechanisms?
Can<br /> you reproduce the suede finish on some dash frames and many steering columns?
Do<br /> you stock spare parts should my components be missing some parts?
Do you repair Water Valves for Air Conditioning (A/C) equipped cars?
Do you have<br /> a way to make my car safer from the dashboard fires and overheating problems<br /> that have plagued many Mopars over the years?
My Gas / Fuel<br /> Gauge doesn’t indicate correctly, can you help me?
These problems are usually related to either a broken gauge, an inoperative sending unit, poor wiring to the sending unit or a bad fuel tank ground.
If the ground is fine and the needle seems to be moving, then a bad sending unit is usually the cause (often even a brand new replacement can be faulty). Send in your gauge and we will calibrate and test it to eliminate the possibility of a broken instrument. If there is still an issue upon installation, we can talk you through it over the phone as a part of our After Sales Support.
My speedometer<br /> and ammeter both work, but the rest of my gauges are dead. What can I do?
We offer a line of Replacement Circuit Boards and reliable Electronic Limiters in both available styles that are easily installed to fix these issues.
On A Body, as well as some B / C Body vehicles, the limiter is built into the gas gauge. In that case, we can repair the limiter portion by installing a new electronic limiter in your existing fuel gauge.
My<br /> speedometer needle bounces and I have already replaced my speedo cable, can you<br /> help.
My<br /> plastic instrument cluster and clock lens is all scratched, is this something<br /> that can be fixed?
Do<br /> you repair soft plastic dash pads?
I am not very good at dash wiring and electrics can you restore and build me a complete dash that I can simply install in my car and plug in?
Certainly, we call that a ‘turnkey’ dash restoration. Every component is restored (cluster, wiring harness, frame, radio, heater controls, switches etc), loaded into the fully refinished dash frame which is mounted on our custom dashboard rotisserie and once assembled powered up and tested just as if it was installed in your car. When you uncrate it all you have to do is mount it in your car, click in the main bulkhead connector to the firewall, add your steering column and you are all set to go!
My<br /> tach doesn’t work with my new MSD style ignition box. Is there anything you can<br /> do.
Can<br /> you update my instrument cluster to use LED lights?
I<br /> have an AC control and the push buttons are really hard to press, can you help<br /> me?
Some of my wiring harnesses have splices, cut wires and in one case a melted wire. Can this be fixed.
Sure it can, not a problem at all. We can restore virtually any wiring harness as long as it is not heavily chopped up, totally melted or all dried out so the insulation is hard or cracking. All of our repairs are done with professionally soldered connections, fully insulated with heatshrink tubing and then wrapped back into the harness with the correct black friction tape. In the mean time all connector shell bodies are ultrasonically cleaned and all high current connections are professionally soldered to ensure maximum reliability and to eliminate any chance of overheating.
