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

Posted on September 13, 2017 at 5:18pm 7 Comments

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. …

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?

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 ?

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?

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.

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…

Source for Motor mounts and Trans mounts 1964 SDV

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?
