Trunk Pull-down

Hi gang.  While reviewing the extensive photo archives on this site, I came across an excellent series of photos documenting a trunk pull-down assembly posted by Jason Edge.  I really didn't even realize this was optional on our cars!  I'm wondering how many cars came with this option...and of course I WANT ONE!See More

Hi gang. Im looking for a set of power seat cables for my 64 deville. Can any one point me in the right direction?

Power Steering

Posted on September 9, 2015 at 12:25pm 3 Comments

I have seen several examples of 63 and 64 restored motors and engine compartments; including Jason Edge' beautiful pics of his motor, on our website here. I am an advocate of saving the life of these old Cadillacs. To me this means returning the car to its original glory. That said, using the correct colors in the correct places is important to me.

I have seen examples of power steering pumps in black and Cadillac blue, I have seen examples of vented and non vented pulleys in black and… Continue

Water temp sending unit

Posted on August 31, 2015 at 1:35am 13 Comments

The motor in my 64 DeVille was rebuilt prior to me owning the car. Some jack wagon cut the end off of the green temperature sending wire, and never installed the temp sending unit back in the head...they just plugged it. I am hoping some one might have a pic of the correct wire routing and the connection end on the the temp sending wire.

Freeze Plugs

Posted on August 4, 2015 at 2:33pm 3 Comments

My 64 DeVille has a set of steel freeze plugs.  The car was left in storage with only water (no Antifreeze) in the engine.  The freeze plugs have rusted and are starting to leak.  I am trying to find a source for a set of the good brass Freeze plugs to replace them.  The vendors here on our website only seem to carry the steel replacements.

I am sure I can get the brass freeze plugs if some one could give me the correct size of each of them.

I am open to suggestions.

Is there a separate Starter Relay, or does the Solenoid serve that purpose?

Posted by Norman Silverman on August 30, 2019 at 5:57pm 7 Comments

Hello All.

I will be replacing the starter solenoid tomorrow (actually my mechanic will do the work, I'll just supervise). In checking the FSM electrical schematic and chapter verbiage, I don't see anything that looks like (or is referred to as) a starter Relay. It seems the Starter Solenoid serves the function and there's no separate relay. Right or Wrong?

If wrong, where…

Starter Solenoid replacement-how difficult? Where to buy?

Posted by Norman Silverman on August 20, 2019 at 8:24pm 8 Comments

Hello All.

I believe the starter solenoid has gone bad in my 64 DeVille. When I turn the key, often all I get is a click, then if I try a few times again the starter turns perfectly. All battery cables are on tight and the battery is good. So, I believe this problem is the solenoid. Where do I buy the right solenoid and is it necessary to remove the starter in order to swap it out? …

Can anyone shed some light on how to position the complete drive shaft in the correct position? I want to make sure my drive shaft is installed properly.
