BF Goodrich Silvertown Bias ply tires, 820x15, One inch whitewall, for sale

In October 1983, I purchased 4 reproduction BF Goodrich Silvertown bias ply tires, (820x15 with a one inch whitewall) from Coker Tires for my 1964 Eldorado. They have been on the car since last week, since I decided to put radials on the car. Yes, they are 35 years old and have 5000 miles on them. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in these as display tires on your car at car shows, as a swap for driver radials, in order to avoid point deductions at judged shows. They are NOT on rims. The whitewalls are like new, and there are no marks, abrasions, cracks or dry rot on these tires - they look great. I can honestly say that these tires have never been wet except for occasional whitewall cleaning. I'd like to get $125 for the set of 4. Ideally, local pick-up in the Buffalo NY area would be the best deal, as I'm speculating that shipping would be around $25 a tire (I have not looked into the options yet.) Please contact me at jppuma@yahoo.com if you have an interest.

Hi Jerry, I know some people do exactly as you are suggesting, use radials as the driver tires, then have a set of original style for show day. Maybe someone can put these to good display use.

Brakes Went Out

Posted by Christopher Codd on August 8, 2018 at 8:25am 18 Comments

My '64 Cadillac DeVille had been sitting for awhile while I was travelling this summer and when I came home it had some issues starting. After replacing the plugs and the ignition coil, it was running better than it had in a long time but the brakes were sticking. I noticed the brake pedal was traveling a little farther than usual when slowing down. Soon after I noticed a hissing noise coming from around the brake pedal. Then I lost the brakes pretty much completely. I couldn't find any…

Comfortron AC trouble shooting

Posted by Norman Silverman on July 23, 2018 at 8:54pm 5 Comments

OK, here we go.....

I got the book to troubleshoot the system. INDISPENSABLE to this effort. 

As I do a cursory exam, I see that the AC RECIRC SOLENOID is Cracked (the WHITE one in the engine compartment coming out of the HVAC body with two vacuum hoses on it). I tried to patch it up (cracked all around the base), but it does not look like it will hold. 

PLEASE TELL ME THAT REPLACING THIS PART IS NOT AS DIFFICULT AS I THINK IT IS, But I think it is a bear to…

A/C Issue / Stumped !

Posted by Dana G Cooper on July 23, 2018 at 6:29pm 37 Comments

My 63 CDV factory A/C was trash so I replaced every part in the system and converted to R134 . I also installed a STV bypass kit which eliminated the STV all together and converted the system to a cycling system.  I vacumed and charged the system with 36oz of 134. The system is cycling as it should and the pressures are right at 250 high side, cycle off at 25lbs and cycle back on at about 35lbs. It is making plenty of water on the low side hoses and evaporator drain. There is very good air…
