1964 Cadillac Carb

I am completing my engine rebuild and would love to add an EFI system vs a carb but I’m not prepared to spend over $1200 at this time.  I was just doing an engine rebuild then I dove into the trans and instead of rebuilding it I decided to upgrade to a Turbo 400 so that upgrade along with the adapter and misc. engine and trans parts put me over budget.  My choices are to rebuild the existing carb, buy a new carb or install a new EFI System.  Since I still have some other items to do and the car…See More

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…

Flashers

Where do the flashers go in my 64 Deville Convert.  I'm thinking that's why both turn signals stopped working.

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
