Happy New Year Everyone! I hope you have a chance to check out our January Newsletter with the fantastic personal story by David Cotton. Here are just a couple of quotes form his endearing story:

"When I raised the hood what I saw was bad enough to bring tears to your eyes. He had used a cutting torch to remove the engine and transmission. In the process he had cut EVERYTHING. All the brackets for the alternator and power steering pump were cut, all the supports for the transmission were cut, all the power steering hoses, rad hoses and transmission cooler lines were cut along with most of the wiring harness. He had also cut the engine mounts- all with a torch. I knew this was going to make this restoration that much harder. Looking at this massacre, I became even more determined to bring her back. "

"My main goal was to have this Classic Cadillac on the road and certified before My First Son was born. I wanted to bring him home in Style- but all my friends thought it was impossible. I had a car from a Junk yard that needed EVERYTHING but I kept working on it! It took me NINE MONTHS to get the mechanical restoration complete and by late summer my Dream Car passed its mechanical inspection. My Son was born shortly after and the nurses all cheered as I pulled up in this old Cadillac to pick up My Wife and New Born Son."

After renovating both the engine and the automat, I have vibrations. Not sure if they come from the engine or the transmission. Can the flexplate versus converter be wrong? or the flexplate against…Continue

64 Power Servo vacuum leak

Posted by Kent Prows on June 27, 2020 at 4:02pm 0 Comments

I finally got around to fixing a leak in my heater core.  I decided to check to see if there were any other obvious issues while I had everything torn apart.  When I put a vacuum directly (bypassing the transducer) to the power servo it gets to about 10" and then slowly leaks back to zero.  The fan will not go to full and the mode door will not open completely.  I have read a couple of other posts that said they repaired the power servo leaks.  How?  Does anyone have one to sell?  I just…
