Beware that those old cars develope all sorts of bad connections over time. Bad connections cause resistance and generate heat when current passes through them. Often when you fix one bad connection, another one in the line overheats and can bring about the same symptoms. It's kind of like an old garden hose. You patch a whole and the pressure comes back up to normal causing a nother rupture somewhere else. Just repeat your earlier tests to make sure you haven't uncovered another problem somewhere else.
