Is this modern Cadillac Art or a Rats Nest. I think it is more the latter.

I thought the wiring in the door to body rubber conduit … or what was left of it … from my last parts car was interesting and but typical of what I often see on the parts cars I bring in.  The thing here is that these driver's door thick gauge brittle wires get bent back and forth thousands of times over the course of 50+ years, and most people take the lazy way out and just patch in the same spot hoping it will last a bit longer.  Of course peeling into the door and lower kick panel area and running nice new thick gauge stranded wire is the way to go but takes much longer.  Anyway... thought you might get a kick out of the over abundance of electrical tape!

I don't think I've ever seen one where all the wires are broken like that. Impressive. Does anybody remake the wiring harness that goes through the door jamb?

I have the parts to 'make new drivers door wire harness;s, I just need to do it.

Was the door replaced at some point in its life? A lazy repair and just spliced the wires?

Pretty sure from removing the door hinge bolts at door and at body the door had never been off the hinges! Again, this is a very common thing I have seen but it is usually just a few wires.

64 Recirc/Fresh Air Door Actuator replaced; FROM THE INSIDE.

Posted by Norman Silverman on February 4, 2019 at 11:21pm 8 Comments

I am happy to report that I have successfully replaced the Fresh Air/Recirc door actuator that is located on the blower box-and have done so without having to remove the blower box. I did it by taking out the glove box and attacking it from the back.  It took several days, LOTS of patience and some band-aids, but it is done. THE most difficult part -BY FAR- is to remove and then replace the screw that sits on the actuator arm, connecting it to the fresh…

Flashers

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

Source for Motor mounts and Trans mounts 1964 SDV

Posted by Norman Silverman on January 9, 2019 at 4:23pm 4 Comments

Hi.

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?

Thanks

Norm
