Comment by Keith Walmsley on April 26, 2015 at 1:20am

Hi I could use a little advice I am replacing the floor and other rusted parts on my 63 Caddy Convertible only to see that the heater is leaking inside . My question is ( is there an easy way of removing the heater core) it has factory Air.

2/  On removing the front seat I notice that the wiring and plug for the seat controls that are in the door arm rest (that has never worked )are just lying on the floor  but no where on the seat for it to plug in too am I missing a piggy back loom the switch on the seat works the motor getting a little tired but still works as I am in Australia there isn't to many of these around.  Thanks any helpful advice would be appreciated Keith.   

Comment by Jason Edge on April 26, 2015 at 6:58am

Heater core removal instructions are in the shop manual. If you do not have one, that should be your first purchase.

If this is a 6 way power bench seat, the harness from the arm rest control switch should ben connected to connector from relay and motor as seen below:

Comment by Keith Walmsley on April 27, 2015 at 2:30am

Thanks Jason yes your right a manual would be a good investment about now and will heed your advise

The harness shown in picture is what I need but not what I have, if there is any one parting out a 63 and would have one I would be interested to hear from them

Thanks again Jason will no doubt call again before its finished regards Keith   

Comment by Russ Austin on April 27, 2015 at 7:57am

Keith, shoot me an email, and I'll see if I have something.

Many of you are probably aware of site that lists ethanol-free gas in the US and Canada, but just in case you didn't or forget it I posted above in our List of Help links.  Here it is again:

 looking at water control valve on page 13-13 in the manual but what is a thermal vacuum valve , and where do buy one....thanks again .

Comment by Jason Edge on July 29, 2016 at 11:20am

The Thermal vacuum valve is mounted on the end of the water control valve (also called heater control valve and heater water shut-off valve). It is also illustrated with a close up showing the vacuum lines on page 13.21, Fig 13.17. Look at lower right for complete assembly then a cut away of just the thermal vacuum valve near center of illustration. I sometimes have VG complete water control valve/thermal vacuum control valve assemblies but am out. If you want VG used I can add you to my Wait List and would also suggest posting to our Wanted Forum here at www.wanted.6364cadillac.com. If you don't mind aftermarket, I believe USA Parts, and maybe OPGI and Rock Auto Sell them. Also check with Time Groves (Cadillac Tim) on our parts suppler page here at www.parts.6364cadillac.com
