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."

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…

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
