Kevin, Been there done that ... probably 15 years ago.  It is more than just monetary value as Tony indicated, but value of my time and value of the parts in terms of getting the Cadillacs back on the road. I have over a dozen entries spanning back literally half a decade of specific items on my parts list with customers needing front engine covers, intakes, exhaust manifolds and the like. I current have one person looking for a 390 engine and it is for rebuild.  Even if I say rebuilt the carb on this car, ran all new fuel lines, changed all the fluids, addressed electrical issues, addressed fuel delivery issues, addressed vacuum issues, and got the car to fire up, the majority of my customers would say "I need the front cover", I need the intake, I need the exhaust... and by the way, see of that front cover is badly scarred... I want a nice one".   

Sometimes when I pull a car in it is still running... 3 parts cars ago was as I recall, and that is great. You can have some fun with a running parts car.. see below. And if there is indication the car would fire up with some gas, battery, maybe a quick cleaning of the points and plugs I will give if a go. If it looks like I might spend the better part of a day just to get a car to fire up that I will dismantle at least to the short block regardless.   There is also the issue of you really can't tell the health of an engine until you peer into it. What are the nylon teeth on the cam timing gear light, any metal, water or anything else in the oil.  Any obvious physical damage.  The recent pristine 429 see below is a good example.  I had to remove the front cover and cylinder heads to see really how nice this block was. And even as such, as a complete short block, in that condition for a one year only engine, I personally think it is worth $750 to $1000, but have sat on it for months at $500 ($400 for Chapter members). I can easily make more money on a nice front engine cover and 2 exhaust manifolds not to mention all the other goodies that comes off the engine.

So yes, it is nice to determine if the engine will run, if it doesn't take that much time. but that doesn't always guarantee the health of an engine like the one you see below.

And here's the fun you can have with one that does run!

Kevin

The part individually are worth very much more than the complete running engine would be
That is the motivation for disassembling the parts
Sure the parts can be evaluated better with them being apart and examined for resale

All good -Mate

Need correct Muffler for 64 DeVille

Posted by Norman Silverman on June 18, 2018 at 7:57pm 13 Comments

Hello all.

I need to replace the muffler on my 64 and the local shop does not have the correct one.

After looking on the web site's help section, I still don't see a recommended part/manufacturer or suggestion. 

What is the best solution to purchase for a stock, single system with 2 1/2 inch pipes, center in, offset out? 

Thanks.

Norm

64 Power Seat Transmission cleaning-it did the trick

Posted by Norman Silverman on June 16, 2018 at 5:36pm 4 Comments

Hello All.

I thought I'd post a little encouragement for those that might have an inoperative 6 way power seat in their car. The fix is relatively easy, and VERY cheap.

I just purchased an original (not re-painted, nor reupholstered) 64 Sedan De Ville 4 window. When I purchased it the front seat was adjusted forward and tilted down in front; two of the worst positions for me, so I had no choice but to attempt to repair it. 

Pushing the switch in each direction brought…
