Stephen, with CAPS LOCK.

Jason is posting transmissions in his selling thread. Should give you an idea what he is charging. My guess is that he is a bit cheaper than the back street seller. The good thing with buying from Jason is that you get what you pay for and if any problems you will get 100% assistance. Check what it would cost having the transmission sent from Jason, using engineshipping or similar service. If you get a reliable and trustworthy transmission locally for less then go for it.

Most of these transmissions for sale will have to be rebuilt at a large expense due to being without fluid in them for a while  being 50 plus years old and the gaskets and seal drying up while out of the car without the fluid in them 

The turbo 400 trans —is so very bullet proof that I have not seen one that required rebuilding —-on this site since 2006  so I assume there is not a lot of demand for them for that reason ( new for 64 ) 

There are constantly hydromatic trans that need attention or rebuilding  of some kind over the years on this site 

The other Extremely Important issue is —you need to be replacing the same trans you now have in the car —with the same type trans that is coming out of that car ( cannot swap the two ) 

You cannot be putting —a turbo tans ( the better trans reliability wise ) in a car with a Hydromatic  the trans needs to bolt up to an engine that has ———the correct crankshaft in your engine —to be doing that 

The  engines crankshaft end on the trans side of the engine —-are different sizes for the two trans —and you will be —breaking flywheels if the  you install A turbo trans on an engine that had a Hydromatic stock 

Just trying to keep you out of some major trouble when doing trans replacement on your pride and joy 

Enjoy 

There has been a lot of heated discussion about location and shipping. I have deleted these replies as they do not help answer the question. I will just say I charge $150 for good used 1964 Turbo Hydramatics. I charge a lower rate because I do factor in the fact these are heavy and shipping can be expensive for most people. 

My suggestion if you are buying, is to factor in what it will cost you to pick up or transport the transmission.

My suggestion if you are selling, is to give as much information as you can. Include the location, weight (200 lb with torque converter or 155 lb without) and any stipulations regarding shipping (will you charge extra to strap down on a palate, do you require payment up front) . Also include as much information as you can about the condition of transmission.
- Did it come out of a good running shifting car or is that unknown.
- Is the fluid nice and pink red like new fluid, or does it have a brownish hue with a burnt smell
- Do you have any documented maintenance or rebuild on the transmission.

Also, pictures can help sell anything. When I pull one with a large % of the original Cadillac blue on the casing I always include a picture. Pictures can help sell anything as someone can actually see what they are buying. I always have a hard time sending big money for anything used when I don't have a picture. 

Price.. that is up to you. I have over a dozen for $150 sitting covered on a palate. Four are known from good runners, shifting cars. I am in central NC. I am not in a hot bed of old Cadillacs like up in the North East or California so most of mine have to be transported by a national carrier. Given the fact this is a 1 year only transmission, I would think one from a good shifting car should command over $500 ... but again I have 12 on palates. I know that probably 4 out of 5 customers that contact me for one are turned away due to shipping. That is one reason I have continued to adjust my price downward. 10 years ago I sold them for $250 each.  That is about the extent of advice I can offer.

Stuck at two red (dash) lights!

Posted by Jeff Kinzler on November 3, 2019 at 10:00pm 9 Comments

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…

Dash removal

Posted by Jake Mickley on October 9, 2019 at 12:06am 9 Comments

Hello everyone,

On a 63 CDV, if a guy wanted to remove the entire dash to get all the metal painted, and do some other things behind there, how would he go about doing that?  I checked here and the shop manual, but can't find a complete guide.

As always, and help or direction is appreciated.  Thanks!

Thanks for letting me join the club.  Picked up this ‘64 Coupe Deville a few months ago out of Beverly MA, the car has few stickers on it from various Cadillac clubs, didn’t know if anyone might recognize it from it’s “Glory days.” Everything seems pretty healthy except for the body and some very Mickey Mouse repairs, was wondering if anyone had any leads on…
