Hello everyone. It's been a while, I hope all is well.

The projects are ongoing with the Cadillac as you can imagine. I'm planning for the winter projects at the moment. I'm wanting to replace the coils and shock absorbers on all four corners. Does anyone here have a recommendation for certain coils and shocks I should go with? I know the factory coils are different based on the build. It's a 63 coupe DeVille with AC. I'm not looking for nos, just the best fit. Thanks.

P.S. Tony I apologize for making a post where your answer of "check your grounds" does not apply... You were right the last time...

Here's a better pic of the car just because I like it.

Car looks great!

I got standard springs for my 64 Fleetwood from Springs and Things, USA made, good price and very happy with them, correct and level ride height. 

Don't know if you are planning to, but be prepared to replace control arm bushings and ball joints while your at it.

No problem
Having owned my 64 since new and being a super gear head i do get it right --MOST -of the time
If i get it wrong Jason or Clovis will see to it i am corrected
Mostly trying to give some direction and you the confidence to jump into the repair
Clovis has done the above for me regarding attacking my 64 comfort control

These guys and this site are a God Sent owning one of these cars

It takes a Village as they say to get some of these restorations right

Enjoy

63 guidematic issues

Posted by maurice lapoiinte on November 24, 2019 at 3:10pm 0 Comments

 So my 63 guide matic headlamps stay on low beam all the time. I have so far bypassed the system and everything works normal. I have been thru the trouble shooting in the manual but this is where the confusion begins.on my car when the power relay is powered I have low beam and when its not powered I have highbeam, this appears to be opposite what the diagnosis says should be correct.The wiring is all original and no wires have been mixed up.has anyone ever unplugged the 2 wire connector…

Another advantage of the Pertronix III

Posted by Doug Scarrow on November 23, 2019 at 11:12am 1 Comment

   Having tried both the II and III I can say the multispark feature of the III offers a smoother idle . It is also easier to install .Does not require removal of the distributor

Stuck at two red (dash) lights!

I hope someone can help solve these two electrical problems that appeared one after the other.

By way of background: The car, a '64 Eldorado has very limited use. It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January-  that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…
