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 :)

Flashers

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

Thanks

Fuel loss in Carburetor

Posted by Ian Osborne on December 29, 2018 at 11:24pm 16 Comments

Lately if I haven't started my '63 in four or five days it seems that the carburetor has gone dry. The starter cranks for an extended period of time and the engine doesn't come close to firing. I have resorted to pouring a little fuel into the carb to save the starter and battery. This gets it started and it runs fine. It also starts fine after sitting a short while - a couple hours or so.

The fuel pump is new and there is always fuel in the glass bowl of the fuel filter. This, along…
