Whatizzit?
« on: October 01, 2008, 08:30:45 AM »

Stripping a '75 New Yorker today.
I was pulling some wiring out from under the dash.
I saw this section of wire with a humongous bulge in it.
I peeled the heatshrink of the bulge and found this.
Never saw one before.
Whatizzit and what duzzitdo?

Looks like a small noise filter to eliminate electrical noise in the radio.

Yep,red with tracer goes to radio.Especialy if the car had any power options like power windows,antennae,etc.
Ditto if the radio that came out was a factory AM/FM/CB unit.
The CB radio waves pick up all kinds of electric noises from inside the car.

When Steve & Matt left you, they didn't happen to leave with spinning tires and spraying gravel, did they?
