Correct strut rod bushings replacement

Posted on October 29, 2015 at 8:41pm 5 Comments

A quick question. Is there a difference in the bushing design from the 63-64 vs the 65 on up Cadillacs?

I am in need of some bushings and I've looked on RockAuto, and OPG, but I am confused because on the OPG website it list the bushings being the same for a 61 all the way up to a 76 Cadillac.

Caddy Daddy is insanely expensive and overpriced, so I am looking for alternatives.

Can I use the MOOG bushings part # K5184 for the 64?

Thanks.

I think my 64 has a 65 engine and trans combo in it? Help!

Hello everybody, well this has been an interesting journy. I am still trying to figure out why I am getting a vibration at the flywheel area, I suspected something was replaced so this lead me to look at the transmission ID # on the side of the trans, including the engine itself. I can't believe it took me this long to figure it out, but the ID # on the trans is AA-65, and the 429 engine has to be out of a 65 as the water pump lower hose outlet connector goes to the passenger side of the…

Anyone have a spare flywheel cover for a 64 with a TH?

Exactly what the title says. Mine is missing, and I really don't like the flywheel being exposed as rocks and debris can damage it.

Thanks!!

Oil pan has been cut and welded back together, Why?

Posted on July 24, 2015 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

For some reason I just barely noticed this last night while under the car. It looks like someone removed the oil pan once before, and decided to cut it. I see the weld marking going all around the pan. 

Why would anybody do this?

Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

Posted by Chris on May 30, 2021 at 8:55am 1 Comment

Hello!

Newbie to the group here - we have already found tons of invaluable information on the board, so thanks! We are restoring a 1963 Series 62 Convertible. We are wondering if anyone knows of a source to buy the propellor yoke flange (that bolts to the pinion flange) for the driveshaft? One of our ears partially broke off. Not sure if we can buy just the yoke flange as an aftermarket part, or if it has to be rebuilt by a welder/fab guy? Maybe a salvage yard for a source? Again, any…

V.I.N. where?

Posted by Robert Pellow on April 18, 2021 at 1:41pm 6 Comments

Where can I find the V.I.N. on a 63 convertible?  The usual space at the base of the interior windshield on the driver's side has been decimated by weather.

63 Trunk detail

Posted by Bob Pontius on April 8, 2021 at 3:07pm 6 Comments

Jason, I liked the detail and information you have provided. I would like to do mine similar to yours. Can you help? Do you have trunk material? OPGI is sending the trunk product for my 63 Fleetwood. But it does cover the entire trunk as yours was done. If you do not have can you give me a reference? Thanks!! Bob
