Does anyone happen to know the right gasket to use on the ventilator valve connector, where it meets the valley cover? I pulled a crusty gasket off the connector, but can't seem to find the right replacement online.

I have them new from the engine rebuild kits I have brought in over the years and sell for $3 as seen below and can ship from NC to CA 1st class letter rate (no tracking) for $2, or 1st class parcel for $4 (tracking), or 2-3 day priority (tracking) for $8 for a total of $5, $7 or $13 depending on shipping preference. Shoot me a PayPal to and will have one on the way tomorrow morning. If you don't have PayPal email me at and I can send an invoice so you can pay with credit/debit card.


It is just a round cork gasket. You can easily make one by getting a sheet of cork material from any auto parts store. be sure to use a new razor blade.

Russ is right. These are easy to make using a sheet of cork rubber gasket, a utility knife, and a steady hand. The issues is sometimes getting a good template. If you have an old gasket available the easiest method is to lay on a piece of paper and spray with rattle can paint, lift the old gasket and there is your template.  Simply overlay on the gasket material and use a utility knife to cut out. Since this is just a circle, so you can measure the inner and outer diameters and draw the circle on a piece of paper, overlay the gasket and cut out. 

Since I have the new gasket in my hand here are the specs: ID 1 3/8", OD 1 7/8", 1/8" thick, 1/4" width.
For small gasket projects, I like the Fel-Pro 3060 4 pack gasket set.  It's $9.39 via Amazon and if you are a Prime Member (who isn't!), it will be delivered to your door free in 2 days. I just re-upped last week. Our local AutoZone sell for $8.99 but the 40 cents savings is not worth it and I can wait 2 days! For the Amazon link Click Here. They also sell individual sheets of different gasket material. For the 4 pack set here is what is included:

One cork-rubber sheet = 10"x 8 5/8" x 1/8"
One cork-rubber sheet = 9 1/8" x 8 5/8" x 1/16"
One rubber-cellulose sheet = 9 3/4" x 8 5/8" x 3/64"
One rubber-fiber sheet = 9 1/4" x 8 5/8" x 1/32"

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.

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


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?
