I will send to local upholstery shop  seats from my 63 sedan deville.

 I guess I should remove tracks with all electric gear so I can restore it etc.

My seat had power but it didn't moved forward or back.What lubrication I should use for seat transmission etc? Any tips to restore seats ?Thank you,Paul

Do a search of the help section. I think Jason Edge and others have some good tutorials on what and how to do it. 

The tracks on the seats usually get gummed u with dust and dirt. The horizontal movement rides on phenolic blocks, so a spray of silicone lube will suffice.  The tilt actuators depending on the year are gear or shaft driven. A spray of white lithium grease will do there.

lean the parts off with a spray can of brake parts cleaner.

The actual power pack to the power seat has different components that can malfunction. Just because you are getting power to the seal, doesn't say much.  Be sure the motor spins. If not, you will need to troubleshoot by it does not. Either a bad relay or a bad motor. next is the transmission. The grease inside gums up and stops the slides from moving.   A cleaning and relube will suffice. I use spray silicone on the sliders, and wheel bearing grease on the gears.  

Do not take the power pack to the upholstery shop. They will break it, somehow.

Clovis and Russ are as always giving good advise. But you might find it handy to learn how this website is working.

The two pages you will most likely find the stuff you need is "Help" and "Parts Suppliers". The rest is also good information and should be looked on.

Step 1.

Step 2, scroll down to the topic you are looking for:

When I'm new to a website I never check "Help", as in my simple mind Help contains instructions on how to use the website.

However "Help" on 6364cadillac.ning.com is the go to place. Look here first. If you don't find a solution and solved the problem please post a good description WITH pictures and Jason will tag it to "Help" thereby helping other members in the future. It is the best library for our cars. And used by others when sorting out the non-63/64 Cadillacs as well.

Excellent HELP Anders!

Thank you for all advice.

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

Posted by Norman Silverman on January 9, 2019 at 4:23pm 2 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

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…
