Tilt Steering : is there a return spring?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Jason Edge Aug 2, 2018. 3 Replies

On the tilt column, there is a shift lever (tranny), and mine seems too loose. Like I am missing a spring.  Is there a spring and where would it be?  What does it look like? Continue

"Yes. Definitely. If you did not bench bleed the master cylinder before installing it, that's a problem. I remember that was step #1 when I replaced mine a few years back. It took several minutes to bleed all the air out of the MC."

"Come to think of it, since the MC is already mounted you can perform the procedure I described with it still there. Disconnect the lines, fit the bleeder lines and use the brake pedal to bleed."

Ian Osborne replied to Frank Murch's discussion One man brake bleeding
"Frank, Did you bench bleed the new master cylinder? I've always done this on American MCs because without it they sometimes will pump only air and no fluid. You need a couple short lengths of spare brake line. Attach them to the outlets and…"

One man brake bleeding

20 years ago I had a brake problem, got a life time master booster and cylinder from PepBoys and all was good.  My wheel cylinders are all rebuilt with stainless steel sleeves and the springs, shoes and drums are all "new" (unworn, but over 10 years old).  The pep boys master started to fail and I got it on exchange. It is from a 1968. So I had a 63 master and booster rebuilt and swapped them in today.  Now I have nothing on the peddle and I am getting nothing out of the wheel cylinders with…See More

Jason Edge replied to Frank Murch's discussion Tilt Steering : is there a return spring?
"Yes, there is a spring that keeps the lever pushed out and keeps the lever from flipping around. It fits in a cavity at the bottom end of the lever. When you go to shift gears you pull on your the lever which presses the end against spring. When you…"

Help a couple in their 80s with a Cadillac???

Posted on March 7, 2014 at 12:16am 1 Comment

There is a couple in their 80s about ready to celibrate their 50th wedding anaversery. Their son saw my 63 Cadillac in San Diego and he is trying to find a 1960-1964 Cadillac in Las Vegas in the spring for a ride.  Why? It seems these couple had a 1962 Cadillac when they were married 50 years ago. The son wants to do something nice for them and find “the car” to take them to a nice dinner or show.

 

If you have a nice Cadillac in Vegas, I would like to connect you…

Transmission swap on a 1963

Posted on June 28, 2013 at 3:05am 2 Comments

My Jetaway in my 1963 convertible is giving me problems....again.  It has 10K on a rebuild.  The transmission has been a problem some years and I have a lot of money into it.  I have not found a good transmission guy, so I am thinking.

Does anybody have specific parts and instructions for a 700R transplant??  I am thinking that I might just get rid of the Jetaway and the headaches from the thing.

Any Ideas???

Rear Side Window Stainless Sill Removal

Posted by Lee Martin on June 24, 2019 at 3:07pm 2 Comments

I'm looking to replace a piece of the stainless trim that sits on the outside of the car like a sill outside the rear passenger side window.  I can just barely see one screw at one end but does the door panel and/or window need to come out to access this?  If anyone has done this I'd like to learn what is involved.  Here's a photo of the piece I'm talking about:…
