Now that I have acquired a transmission mount for my car I want to also buy a transmission tail shaft bushing (s) and seal. I remember Clovis mentioned he replaced his a while ago-any chance part numbers could be shared?

Thanks

Norm

Norman, I would consider replacing the rear lower trailing arm, forward bushing with the insert and poly bushing. It has cured several vibration issues. 

dan.mcnarry@telus.net  Contact Dan, as he has new trailing arms and the inserts. 

Interesting-the tech who worked on the car mentioned wanting to check that when he did his test drive. I guess it was good. The remaining vibration is speed sensitive and feels rotational. That said, however, I'm going to ask if that inspection was actually done. 

Thanks, Russ!

After thinking it through a bit more carefully, I believe whatever was the original source of vibration is still there but because the drive-line "anchorage" has been tightened and strengthened, the manner in which the vibration is now experienced has changed. Just for "shitz and giggles" do you know where I can buy the bushing (s) ? Thanks! 

Contact Dan —at the email  Russ gave you  in his last post 

Dan makes new control arms with new bushings and the only ones available that will work correctly on the market today in our year Cadillacs 

No other options known  that will  work to repair the rear control arm bushings for our year Cadillacs are  available

Dan’s one exceptionally innovative engineer and makes an exceptional replacement that Russ installed in his own car so part has passed the required testing by Russ 

Enjoy

Thank you!!

63 Trunk detail

Posted by Bob Pontius on April 8, 2021 at 3:07pm 1 Comment

Jason, I liked the detail and information you have provided. I would like to do mine similar to yours. Can you help? Do you have trunk material? OPGI is sending the trunk product for my 63 Fleetwood. But it does cover the entire trunk as yours was done. If you do not have can you give me a reference? Thanks!! Bob

Car lift and jack stands

Posted by Les Eastling on March 23, 2021 at 10:00am 4 Comments

I mentioned during the 63/64 chapter zoom meeting on 3/21 that we had installed a car lift in our garage. Someone asked what kind and I didn't have the info at hand, so here is a link to it and also a link to some tall jack stands we use to add more stability to the car and an additional safety factor. There is something about getting underneath one of these cars that makes me a little nervous! …

Leaky Freeze Plug

Posted by Lee Martin on March 22, 2021 at 12:49pm 7 Comments

Just developed a significant leak coming from a freeze plug right over the starter.  Would this be considered a "cam plug" i.e. like Dorman 17616DS?  Our cars have multiple sizes of plugs on engine block and I want to get the right one.  Also, does anyone know how pricey this is for a shop to fix?  Thanks!
