So I won't mention what vehicle this master cylinder is on and I think I know my answer but it always good to get a second opinion. Similar to performing a full frontal lobotomy on yourself. Get a…Continue
I've got a traveller's fuel tank that the original owner had installed to use on long vacation trips. He disconnected it at some point because of carb problems. I was looking to see if it could be…Continue
I haven't spent much time on my old cars this summer. My latest project has been a gazebo on the new island. I'll be ready Wednesday to start putting on shingles. Tomorrow its facia and some more…Continue
I thought I'd start a post that lists vintage aftermarket or dealer installed accessories, that are cool or wierd, that we have found on our collector cars. Doesn't matter if they are Cadillac or not…Continue
"Ian, I have a new respect for you now that I know you've replaced your own clutch on a mini. I not right in the head sometimes and when I start on something I research until I become a.... well, a mad scientist LOL. I have several hundred hours…"
"Hey hey hey wait a minute. I didn't say I no longer love my Cadillac. This thing is my pride and joy. I'm just trying to preserve it for future generations to love. Meanwhile ......
I'm knee deep into MINI Clubman s's at the…"
"Sorry Kurt I've owned one of those for 25 years. I bought it when I put together my second tree spade and used it to clean some paint and scale off heavy equipment. I've used it so many times over the years I can't remember. Just as…"
"What's with us car guys? We can't seem to stop at one car, I just bought a new project. A 2009 mini cooper clubman. This should lower my fuel consumption, two big blocks and a hemi are killing me. My excuse for another car LMAO. Howdy…"
"Years ago I read a couple of books on car chassis design and handling improvements. This was when restomod cars were first being built and that term hadn't been coined yet. There are so many different things that can be done to change a cars…"
"Did some cars come without that tube? My car has hoses routed to the inner fender with a clip that secures both. I thought someone just threw out the pipe and did it that way but the clamp used looks to be factory and some add on part."
"It was an option for the passenger mirror. Not a lot of them got it. Opgi sells them new though. Try spinning you side mirror down and in not up and out. If you look at dealer pictures that's how its installed. Jason pointed that out to me and…"
"I hear you Norm. I like to up date things to a certain degree, but... it needs to blend nicely with the originality of the car and look somewhat thought out. I went with Fitech fuel injection but used the stock breather with an adapter from Russ.…"
"Sometimes the building of these rigged tools is more fun than the work you need to do with them. I love it when a problem is solved with off the shelf garage stuff. Great work and keep the pictures coming. "
New member who just purchased a 1964 Sedan Deville with a bad AC system. I have seen that you wrote some great articles on repairing the pneumatics (mechanical part of AC system is now working). Can you send me a link to your previous posts ? Thanks. Bob Sweeney
I need the front bench seat reupholstered with original style material. This is a 1963 Park Avenue with #44 Trim. If anyone can suggest a Cadillac experienced upholsterer it will be appreciated.…Continue
Well I recently found a guy here locally, who’s got about 8-9 63/64 Cadillacs convertible and hardtop coupes. I also recently found a 64 convertible Eldorado. I really want to purchase it here shortly. If anyone wants to buy it off me or the guy selling it, let me know ASAP. It’s really a great price. If anyone is looking for anything let me know. If you have Instagram my handle is @caddikingheartbreaker. You can also message me on here. I’ll check back from time to time. Or… Continue
Although the radiator was not leaking, nor was the car running hot, I tool out the radiator today to have it boiled out and rodded out. Then I changed the oil and filter (filter is very easy to reach with the radiator out), then the thermostat got changed.
I'll have the radiator back from the shop on Monday, and will reinstall it then.
