Got two problems that I've been trying to tackle:

1. My radio has almost constant static coming through the speakers when I try both the AM and FM radio stations. If I play around with the wiring a little bit in the back or if I pull the radio out it works fine. As soon as I put it back in though it might stay for a day or an hour and then go right back to static. The antenna is tight on the post on the fender. The static doesn't sound different depending on RPM so I don't believe its the radio signal displacement thing on the decklid above the engine. I replaced the stock radio with another stock one from the junkyard and both of them are doing the same things. I feel that it's unlikely that both of them could be causing the same problem.

So I'm not sure where my next step should be in checking. I'm guessing the wiring harness but I'm not sure exactly where to start diagnosing because all of the connections are tight and I can't see any corrosion.


2. I've tried adjusting my e-brake equalizer because of how loose the cables are, but no matter how I move it or tighten it, there is no movement in either direction. I believe it is probably just seized after all of these years. I purchased a new one but I have no idea how to get the old one off now.

Thanks!

Adjusting likely won't help.
You have bad wheels cables or all three and/or bad calipers.

I read your whole post on rear brakes, and I'm just going to hope that the rebuilt calipers that I put on are correct for the moment. The equalizer is 3/4 down the threaded part of the brake cable which is why I see it so loose. With that in mind, I believe that the equalizer just needs to be threaded back and it will tighten up. Not sure how to do that because no matter how I grab the cable and equalizer the cable just spins and doesn't move up or down the threaded part.
