    C2 Coupe Exhaust and Choke Questions

    Door handle replacement question

    I replaced the door handle on the passenger side of my 61 and things went smoothly with no apparent problem. When I tested the handle prior to putting the door panel back on it would not advance the pivot rod enough to release the door. Could not get it to work so put the old handle in place...

    Just got a 61 beauty and the battery died after sitting for 4 days. Replaced it and the new one died after 2 weeks. Using a 12 volt tester I removed the ground and jumped the ground back to the neg terminal with the ignition off. Got a positive indicator of current flow. Next checked the...
