I’ve been looking for options for adding a  oil pressure and water temp gauges , but not wanting the normal round 

auto meter style to the dash, and I came across this. 

Just thought I’d share in case anyone hasn’t seen these...

Those look great.  A sure hit with the upgraded Cadillac.

The oil pressure gauge is abit excessive since the oil pressure will not go over 30 psi. 8-10 psi is idle.

I had those gauges in my '64 Impala, they were GREAT!!  So much better than the stock analog ones because you could see so many more motor functions to ensure all was well under the hood.  I had to run a GPS speedometer though which would go out from time to time if there was no satellite connectivity.  Great addition to your Cadillac, excellent choice!

I get a big kick out of the great info you bring to this site about stuff you have done in the past with your machines
I enjoy some of the directions you have already gone with hands on feeback you provide
You have done a number of modification that i am sure run through the minds of the owners of our cars often ( what can i do to this great car next ?)
Nothing better than someone who has been there done that on a given subject to advise you on the subject
Almost as good as a video on the subject --sometimes
I Love the White 58 and 64 Cadillacs you have
The increaed power and other features of the 64 made me go with that year
I like the cubic inches and style
As far as looks go i like the 57-58 the most and then the 62 ( that i owned - all convertibles for me )
So you upgrading the drive trains of both is making some very interesting perfect
Cadillac combinations
Your mechanical abilities are obvious by the mods you have attempted and accomplished
Real glad your here to Help

Enjoy

Hi Tony!

Thanks for the kudos!  I enjoy this site very much and have used it for assistance as often as I have given it.  This is a great place to network and learn from those that have done good things (and bad) to their cars.  I have been reluctant to purchase a modern vehicle for decades so I have always tried to modify my daily drivers to suit my needs.  I love my '57 and '64 Cadillacs and am always looking for ways to make them just a little better while keeping the original flavor intact.  Invention is the mother of necessity after all!  

Happy Motoring.

Mike

HVAC Vacuum Valve Clip-need the one for the Power Control side

Posted by Norman Silverman on September 17, 2018 at 8:15pm 6 Comments

Hi.

Update:

I removed both 7 nipple vacuum valves and called my buddy who owns a machine shop. Tomorrow we'll re-surface the valve faces and then I'll reinstall them. HOWEVER, the one that comes out easily and comes apart with no rivet is on the Power module side. It installs on one side with a small bolt, and on the other it is held on by a clip, WHICH IS MISSING ON MY CAR. I am going to assume it is the same clip that is used on the Control Module side. Anybody got one? Happy…

7 vacuum valve-need a good one or someone to recondition mine

Posted by Norman Silverman on September 15, 2018 at 5:44pm 12 Comments

So, I've put my 7 vacuum valve from the control head side to the test, and it failed. I looked at the instructions for re-conditioning it and unless I am missing something, the instructions are missing something (about how to take off the clip that provides the tension that holds the two pieces together). 

In any case, I can't do this particular repair so I am looking for a new valve (not likely), or a good re-conditioned one, or someone who has done this before and would do mine for…
