Good evening. I own an 1959 Willys wagon all original, including scrappy paint...I drive it everyday. I am working on redoing the upholstery, the seats are redone but not the walls. I need some interior shots to see what I am trying to do around the doors. Also my right front turn signal light went out. Its not the bulb, but I have no real mechanical knowledge so I need advice on detecting a groudn fault or whatever it might be.

Also has anyone have any experience replacing the generator with an alternator?

I know I will have more questions.....

Welcome. Not sure about your light and mine is still at the shop so I can't even go look at one to see what it looks like. Plenty of knowledge on here and people willing to help so I am sure that someone will post up with a starting point soon. Sounds like you already swapped bulbs from left to right to make sure that wasn't the problem. Is it clean? (Contacts and ground) Do you have a meter?
