There was some discussion about fuel filters and thought I would post these pictures showing an original type filter, and an aftermarket paper element AC and on AC filter. Note the one on the left.

The original AC filter on the left was a GF-97 but seems to have been replaced by the # GF-149 at some point. The non-AC original filter was a GF-200. I don't think I have one of those or a picture.

The 2 filters on the right are the sealed AC type (WIX 33039) and the open top non-AC type (WIX 33034). In particular note the carboard base. When installed the gasket goes over this base and the glass goes on top of gasket holding everything in place........but......the bottom carboard will disentegrate and filter will float to bottom becoming useless. You can keep filter pressed up with a spring, but the base still disintegrates and it is probably a good idea to periodically replace.

Go back to the original type filter and look at how sturdy the base is with the steel ring. As they say, the just don't make things like they use to.

Posted by Dominic Salemi on April 24, 2019 at 3:36pm 1 Comment

Hello

Anyone have a decent radiator and shrouds and hardware for a 1964 Cadillac deville. I have an alum. radiator and I'm deciding on to fix it or back to the original one. If I fix it I won't need parts.

Thanks

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…
