So the 78 B and I head up to the BRIC race weekend at Road America and on the way the ignition light goes on. The roadside check shows I'm getting 14.3v at the battery. I cleaned the contacts on the

You got it right on, Hans. The outer brush had worn down to the point that the spring no longer could maintain contact. It also explains why it would worsen (get brighter) as it got hot and the sprin

A Pickle fork is a forked wedge that goes around the shaft of the tie rod and gets hammered on the end. It often will damage the rubber grease boot but it will pop that stubborn tapered tie rod out.
