"Doesn't matter what oil, whatever you are running in the car would be fine. Next step would be to perform a leak down test.  You can usually rent a leak down tester from an auto parts store. Important that you get each cylinder at top dead…"

Tosh Dickenson replied to Michael Chomout's discussion Compression test
"Put a squirt of oil (about a teaspoon) in the low cylinders and rerun the test.  If the compression boosts then the rings or cylinder walls have leakage.  If no boosts then likely a valvetrain issue and you can move to the next tests."

Oil filler cap discharge

Hello all,I've noticed some oil droplets that appear to be coming from the oil filler cap on my '64 Deville.  It's not a California car so it's just the cap with the wire mesh breather...no hose connections on it.PCV valve is new and the breather tube is clean...redid all that not too long ago.  No other engine oil leaks to speak of.I suspect it's been happening a while but the ac compressor had been slinging oil everywhere until I got it fixed.I recall seeing a post somewhere about someone…See More

Tosh,congrats on the Caddy. There is a lot of help out there. Ruby is now in Buckeye,AZ. We winter here and 5/W up in the NW.  I should have been able to find more time by now, but the list on what to do next is still long. "She" just left Eugene late last year.

64 Power Servo vacuum leak

Posted by Kent Prows on June 27, 2020 at 4:02pm 0 Comments

I finally got around to fixing a leak in my heater core.  I decided to check to see if there were any other obvious issues while I had everything torn apart.  When I put a vacuum directly (bypassing the transducer) to the power servo it gets to about 10" and then slowly leaks back to zero.  The fan will not go to full and the mode door will not open completely.  I have read a couple of other posts that said they repaired the power servo leaks.  How?  Does anyone have one to sell?  I just…
