Hi all. Just signed up, figured I'd say hi and introduce. I've already found a lot of useful information on the site, thanks!

Name is Stijn (that would be Stein in less weird Dutch spelling), live in The Netherlands, Europe.
Last year I bought a matador red 64 Coupe Deville in the Portland OR area and roadtripped it to San Francisco port for shipping to Europe. The car arrived here a few weeks ago and I'm in the process of giving it some technical TLC (mainly brakes and other general maintenance) for it to pass European registration tech in a few weeks.
The roadtrip (long way round, through the parks) was amazing and I really fell in love with the old Caddy.
It's no show winner but it's unrestored, original and rustfree. Has a few 'senior parking' dings but nothing too bad. Engine is still matching to the car.

Well, I'll probably post a few questions here and there. Best regards from across the Atlantic - sorry to have abducted one of your classics to another continent but I promise it's in good hands :)

Thanks

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…
