It's my first time posting a question.  I want to add seat belts front and rear to my 64 convertible. Seems like all suppliers have them in 60 or 74 inch lengths. Most passengers are of average typical size and I did the rope measure test and 60 inch belts seem the way to go. Does anyone know what the original length that was produced when new. Any and all thoughts are welcomed.

Thanks John Boening

At the top of the home page see a group of headings.  Click on the Help button.   All help topics are arranged in alphabetical order.  Scroll down to seat belts sections.  I believe you will find a lot of your questions answered there.

Thank you Gene,

I am just starting to use 63/64 and appreciate the help navigating the site. Saw lots of other info there too. Now can anyone help me rotate my picture or should I delete and repost it. Newbies, geez

John, On your profile picture you can re-crop but do not see any rotate editing available so you need to rotate it upright with software on the device it resides then reupload. Once you have it upright just click on Settings and you will see the link to upload a new profile picture.


You can flip an image (on your "My Page" only) using the advanced setting on the "My Page" tab.    Go to "My Page", and just below your profile pic, click "customize"

Then,  on the Design Page, click "Advanced" on the top left

Then, paste "#xg_themebody #xg img{transform: rotate(180deg);}" at the bottom of that window.  That will rotate your main image 180 degrees.  When you're done, it should look like this (on a windows 10 desktop):

Finally, click Publish at the bottom right, and your profile pic will be flipped (mine is now).   Note that it only flips the picture on your page, so chat thumbnails and the actual image if you click on it will render as you posted it.  nonetheless, it will show upright -part- of the time.   Like mine, for example:

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

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?



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. I have resorted to pouring a little fuel into the carb to save the starter and battery. This gets it started and it runs fine. It also starts fine after sitting a short while - a couple hours or so.

The fuel pump is new and there is always fuel in the glass bowl of the fuel filter. This, along…
