Marvel Mystery oil

Hello everyone.

I have never used Marcel Mystery oil before.
I have seen it mentioned alot, throughout the years.

Is this product snake oil or is it magical?

Any thoughts on why it might or might not be good?

Thanks all!

Re: replacement '59 headlight switch

After I installed LED's in the dash, I took out the knob and shaft and cleaned it up with some super fine Emery cloth.
After that it rotated beautifully even though with LED's they won't dim unless there's more done to the circuit.

Re: Instrument Lights

I too being a young 48 years old had trouble changing all three especially that high up center one with the tiny bit of wire. I lay on my back with my head squeezed in behind the gas pedal to get access up behind the console. NOT an easy way to do anything behind the cluster. I changed out the bulbs...

Re: Drive belt wobble

Man that is a nice looking 318.

I will check tightness. I don't like the fact the alternators on a large arm that I think might even have some give when you really tighten the belt. I will also check the alternator pulley.

Thanks guys.

Imagine that wobble being 20-30 times faster as the camera smooths it out so to speak.

Re: Drive belt wobble

Hi Dan.

Yes, it's been upgraded to an alternator. Unfortunately I've taken video but the vibration doesn't show on video well at all.

Drive belt wobble

Does anyone else see significant belt wobble on their 318's? I'm seeing a significant wobble l from the alternator to crankshaft span.
Just wondering if it's normal because it's quite a long run.
