I do see your point as i am recalling the rubber drain tube that directs the water flow away from the evaporator core
How many of those are still there doing the job they should be might be the better question to ask ?
If the core should freeze where will the thaw water overflow wind up ?
There is surely a moisture issue in that location for a variety of reasons that are AC related
When would a rust preventative not be a good idea ?

Nope the a/c dosent drip on the fender. It drips out the bottom of the inner cowl where the evaporator is. Lots of factory undercoating there.

I dont have the parts for the ac, bought the car last year without pump, lines and so on.. So making the ac work again will be a plan for the future. But your right about the rust. My panels do need attention. I just painted the inside of the panels with a special primer that digs in to rust for now. Going to buy a weldmachine next summer and teach myself how to do bodywork. Shouldnt be that difficult right? Ghehheh.

As you have the passenger front fender off the car
I would use a good rust preventaive on the inside of that fender
The evaporator core of the AC in our year cars drips down the inside of that fender when the Ac is working and working correctly
That AC driping is the major cause of the rust that developes in that lower fender Corner which already may require some repair and attention from age

Wow, you  threw an overkill grenade. Everything was  blown off the car!  The results will be well worth the effort.

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?
