My Choke Thermostat when bad so I had to get a new one.  The new ones rotate the opposite way so that the choke closes when heated.  Anyone else experience this before?Continue

My 1963 eldorado wont start cold without pouring fuel into the carb. Other than that it runs great. Fuel bowl leak? Easy fix?

64 Recirc/Fresh Air Door Actuator replaced; FROM THE INSIDE.

Source for Motor mounts and Trans mounts 1964 SDV

Posted by Norman Silverman on January 9, 2019 at 4:23pm 4 Comments

Hi.

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?

Thanks

Norm
