Long story... short.

Friday night, very slight vibration in Fleetwood.

Sunday, short trip, hard to tell if it was shits roads or vibration.

Monday, go to town.... by then, vibration worse. Get out onto highway, zip to 65 and half my filling were falling out. Shakin all over.... short trip and into gas station. I ran my hands over the tires, well, the bits I could and all seemed ok.

Back out onto highway, can't get over 50 without stuff wanting to vibrate off the car. Pull over again, and do a second hand on tires thing. Its around 35 c and me, the tires and the road are red hot. Couldn't feel any lumps, so off the highway and onto the back roads to home.

This is when I affectedly rubbed the Fleetwood's dash, and said, c'mon baby, I buy you the best oils, i use the nicest smelling car wash fluids on you..... just please get us both home.

Yesterday, took off the right rear and its had a massive separation.... bugger

Give me an idea whats going on with the 64 sedan --and the last conversation you had with her -- LOL !
Is a lot of it still apart as i know you have the Mini Cooper you are also working on and enjoying
Do you feel comfortable walking away from the Cadillac for a while with it apart for long periods of time As you need to remember where all those parts go back together ?

Glad you are stopping by to stay in touch
I always enjoy the info you have to offer
You are our resident --MAD SCIENTISt - for a very good reason !

Is there a separate Starter Relay, or does the Solenoid serve that purpose?

Posted by Norman Silverman on August 30, 2019 at 5:57pm 7 Comments

Hello All.

I will be replacing the starter solenoid tomorrow (actually my mechanic will do the work, I'll just supervise). In checking the FSM electrical schematic and chapter verbiage, I don't see anything that looks like (or is referred to as) a starter Relay. It seems the Starter Solenoid serves the function and there's no separate relay. Right or Wrong?

If wrong, where…

Starter Solenoid replacement-how difficult? Where to buy?

Posted by Norman Silverman on August 20, 2019 at 8:24pm 8 Comments

Hello All.

I believe the starter solenoid has gone bad in my 64 DeVille. When I turn the key, often all I get is a click, then if I try a few times again the starter turns perfectly. All battery cables are on tight and the battery is good. So, I believe this problem is the solenoid. Where do I buy the right solenoid and is it necessary to remove the starter in order to swap it out? …
