Because the lower "keyed" cable from the transmission to the power unit (Jason, thanks for the pic) is so rare and (I think) expensive and is not reproduced, I found a way to solve the problem and get this thing started. I bought a reproduced "upper" cable (power unit to speedometer) in the States and got another good used original (long) speedometer cable for free of a parts car from a friend of mine, to build one, that's fit on the connections either the power unit and the tranny. But the important thing is, that I created the "keyed" piece out of a metal hose by welding a piece of metal on it, where I can put in the inner metal cable. Squeezing it will protect it against rotating. It fits perfect in the power unit (I know, that I have to cut it). The whole thing costs less than 30 bucks. As always, I've gone a different way to fix anything about my car and I know, that you don't even like "my way" sometimes. But it works and I am very proud about it. Guys, thank you very much for your help! I really appreciate it being a part of this chapter. Especially to Jason, who's alway there for everybody.

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…
