Just bumping this up. These are so important to understanding the changes occurring as the 63 & 64 were being produced I may create a new page to link to these. I will load the 63 & 62 bulletins next.

Comment by David Murray on August 30, 2012 at 5:21pm

These are really very interesting......didn't spot them on the old site at all. The little bit I've read so far indicates how minor modifications and tweaks were regularly being introduced throughout model years, identifiable by engine number....very interesting.

They have a lot of history of the tweaks and changes for our cars. You will find everthing from the changing of fans on AC cars in 64, to going black on the firewall in 63, to making front seat belts standard in 64, to things like fixing the leaking vent overflow pipe on the gas tank, to seeing truly how problematic that passenger side ashtray latch was with no less than 3 entries in the bulletins trying to get it right. There is a wealth of information there and uncovers some ( not all) mysteries of the production of these cars!  For those interested in these cars they are a wealth of information. These manuals, coupled with the Specfication Manual and of course the "owners manual", will give you a great overview of these cars.

Is it possible to buy a proper copy of the complete 1964 serviceman bulletin? Even though I can print a black/white copy myself its not the same thing as having an original.

Comment by Jason Edge on February 3, 2017 at 8:18pm

I found all of my originals on eBay. If none are available create filters to notify you when they are posted. These are great technical addendums to the Shop Manuals and of course a nice historical documentation to add to one's collection.

I have an almost complete set of the 64.  Just missing the month of October and November.

75.00 for the set.     I also have an extra month of January, April, June, and August.  10.00 each.

email me at  russ85747@hotmail.com

Comment by Russ Austin on February 4, 2017 at 11:55am

Opps, the almost complete set will come with the index pages.

Comment by Anders on February 11, 2017 at 6:01am

Bought the complete set of 1964 and 1965 Cadillac Serviceman including index and some additional supplements. Total cost 104 USD including shipping. So thought it was good. And it was except that issue July 1964 was missing. Talked to the seller and he wan't aware of that and immediately offered a 10 USD refund.

The supplement included was;

1964: October 20

1965: January 15, August 16, November 15, December 3, and a December 3 pages template for aligning something on the doors.

So if there is a need I can scan the pages necessary and send them to Jason.

The serviceman bulletins for a particular model year start with the October issue of the prior calendar year, so the primary Serviceman Bulletins you will want for a particular model year are the October to September issues. For example, the 1964 model year was introduced in the October 1963 Serviceman Bulletin as seen below:

Comment by Anders on February 11, 2017 at 3:21pm

Yes I see the point in that. But the index is from January to December. If the Serviceman followed the modell-year it would show on the index? I'm reading the October to December for 1964 and see a lot about the 1965 cars but also for the 1964 models. Not much about 1964 cars in January 1965. Haven't read it all yet, but its enjoyable.

As I did have some supplements I wonder if supplements was issued each month or only on special occasions?

Doing disc brake conversion and I need to change out the rims--what to get?

Posted by Preston Bealle on December 7, 2017 at 3:55pm 20 Comments

I'm having a mechanic change to '64 Deville convertible to disc brakes. He used the spacers that came with the kit but one side takes 2 spacers and the other 3, and there is a slight disconnect from the center hub from being so far out. It appears the best solution would not be further tinkering with spacers but a deeper 15" rim made for disc brakes. Does anyone know what rims might work that will allow the existing Cadillac hub caps to fit?  

I have read everything I can find on disc…

The Mileage reading on your speedometer

Posted by Tony and Ginny 429 on November 4, 2017 at 10:57pm 20 Comments

I hope i am not breaking anyones bubble but if you choose to remove the speedometer you can change the mileage on these cars to anything you desire it to be by just adjusting some of its internal parts and changing the numbers

That can lead to a lot of misconduct and cause you to by a car that is not correctly represented by its mileage

Just a heads up to study other aspects of the car to see if the mileage feels right for the wear and tear you may be looking at on a given… Continue
