Oh man, so many folks would've thrown the toys outta the cot and gone away.

Tony, I had a funny feeling, you'd have to test the theory.... you did....

Good on ya..... yes mate, ya Mum and I are very proud. Please take one gold star, stick on ya forehead and wear it with pride.

Tony you did good, my friend, on an intellectual level you probably don't even realize! LOL. This was a non-trick question and a trick question at the same time. I knew you guys would go all over the place with this one. This is one of the "too deep in the trees to see the forest" questions.   If you just think about the fact one car has Bigger tires, and think about how that affects the entire car (the forest) and not get caught up in specific details like gear ratios, etc. (the trees) it is actually pretty simple.
So Congrats again to Tony for stepping out of the trees to see the Forest! Your intellectual genius came roaring through when you realized --> Yep, stick those bigger tires on the car and put a measure stick up next to it and it raises the car a bit! 

Genius, Man... just pure Mad Genius! Mamma, would be proud, indeed!!

Most of us were trying to re-invent the wheel on this one!

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…

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