WTB power steering pump pulley

My power steering belt pulley sheered the woodruff key off the pump shaft and is pretty wrecked. Does anybody have a pulley for sale? Or the whole pump and pulley together?

Brakes Went Out

Posted on August 8, 2018 at 8:25am 36 Comments

My '64 Cadillac DeVille had been sitting for awhile while I was travelling this summer and when I came home it had some issues starting. After replacing the plugs and the ignition coil, it was running better than it had in a long time but the brakes were sticking. I noticed the brake pedal was traveling a little farther than usual when slowing down. Soon after I noticed a hissing noise coming from around the brake pedal. Then I lost the brakes pretty much completely. I couldn't find any…

Modernized Stock Radio

I've been waiting a long time for somebody to make this so I'm really excited to share it. I've seen people run Aux to the original radio, but this goes way beyond that. You can keep the looks of the stock radio, but with modern amenities like Bluetooth, Aux, and outputs for Amps and Subs. I posted the website and Youtube link to a Cadillac radio below. …

Cowl cap

Does anybody know what the deal is with the caps under the cowl? I was cleaning out a mouse nest and found that the passenger side cap was cracked open. What are they there for? Does anybody have a replacement for sale?

NOS Hubcaps Bidding War

Hi Chris my name is Joe. I was looking in the help topics under A/C stuff & came across your AC problem & was wondering if you got it figured out ?

At 5:01pm on May 1, 2014, Vince Torrano said…

OK so I figured it out the lens come out easy just stuck a bit. I thought it was a burned out bulb but its not. The right side all work but the left side does not blink. Very low light from the turn signal but the corner light on the fender just stays on. Where else should I look?

Thanks

Hi Christopher, If you still need an in-car sensor grill you were at the top of my 'needs list' and have a nice one from the last parts car waiting for you. Check your emails. Jason.

Help on Removal of rear seatback on 64 convertible

Posted by Nile Bolen on January 8, 2021 at 11:44am 7 Comments

I'm trying to remove the rear seatback on my 1964 deville conv.  The only help on this site that I can find is the following:

I've removed…
