"Jason, the references provided only state to install the shim.  I remember recently reading the "whistle" of the carburetor, if the metal shim wasn't installed. A field note or serviceman bulletin goes into detail about the shim."

"Jeff, that' would be a cool custom and don't think it would be that far from you. Sounds like a good project for you! LOL.  I think I saw something like this years back. Perhaps it was the same car but can remember for sure."

64 coupe deville frame question

I picked up a couple coupes for parts and one I worth restoring but previous owner notched the frame for the motor mounts and set in a caddy 500 motor , what's the best way to fix it to get back to factory ? I do have another car with a good frame a matching engine and trans but not the same options. And would rather not switch the entire frame .what's my best option? Cut of the one to fix the other ?
