"Dino cruises nice at about 70 mph, but plenty of get up and go if I punch it. I think with the 3.21 gear 80 mph seems a bit more rpm than I prefer although it glides along fine. I think if I were more into interstate cruise, the 2.94 gear would make…"

Question: comfortable highway speed?

What is your preferred cruising speed on highways with your classic Cadillac? What I mean is the speed that allows for relatively quiet and comfortable cruising without slowing down other traffic. The speed limit in my country is 130 km/h (80 mph) but many people are driving faster than that.And related to the above, do you experience any excessive wind noise? My vent windows are still rather noisy despite new rubber seals.See More

Where do the flashers go in my 64 Deville Convert.  I'm thinking that's why both turn signals stopped working.

Hi.

Where is the best place to purchase good quality motor mounts/trans mounts for my 1964 SDV? I see that Rock Auto has them for $8 and change, and others for $24 and change. Big difference. Is there a better place to buy them from?

Thanks

Fuel loss in Carburetor

Posted by Ian Osborne on December 29, 2018 at 11:24pm 16 Comments

Lately if I haven't started my '63 in four or five days it seems that the carburetor has gone dry. The starter cranks for an extended period of time and the engine doesn't come close to firing.
