Could The Exhaust Heat Riser Be Installed Backwards & Causing Running Problems?

Posted on July 6, 2016 at 2:38am 13 Comments

Is it possible that the rebuild shop put the heat riser valve in backwards, causing excess back pressure in the manifold, causing the engine to skip and cut out and then stall when it is fully warmed up and under load? Also to run very hot- in terms of heating up the car like it never did before, and to be sluggish?

One thing I noticed when the car came back from the shop was that I no longer heard the "tick-tick" sound that the heat riser made when the car was running. The…

NEED A 1964 MUFFLER

Posted on June 29, 2016 at 2:06pm 7 Comments

DOES ANYONE HAVE A SPECIFICATION OR MANUFACTURER NUMBER FOR A CURRENTLY AVAILABLE MUFFLER THAT WILL FIT A 1964 ELDORADO?

IT SEEMS TO BE A UNIVERSAL PART FROM  WHAT I SEE  AVAILABLE ON LINE, BUT THE SELLERS ASK YOU FOR THE LENGTH, INLET AND OUTLET SIZE, OFFSET, ETC. STATING THAT THE APPLICATIONS ARE NOT VEHICLE SPECIFIC. 

ALSO IS THERE A SOURCE FOR THE RUBBER INSERTS FOR THE EXHAUST HANGER/BRACKETS?

THANKS,

JEFF KINZLER

Jeff, I noticed that you had a connection to get a kit to replace the broken choke tubes. I also need the twisted piece. The application is a 1963 Cadillac Deville with the 390 Rochester 4GC. Any help would be appreciated, I would like to get this done while I have the intake manifold off :D I bought my caddy a year ago with a rebuilt engine and shortly after it had a major oil leak. Just took the valley pan off and discovered someone folded the gasket over on one side. At least I know where all of the oil came from now!

Brakes Went Out

Posted by Christopher Codd on August 8, 2018 at 8:25am 18 Comments

My '64 Cadillac DeVille had been sitting for awhile while I was travelling this summer and when I came home it had some issues starting. After replacing the plugs and the ignition coil, it was running better than it had in a long time but the brakes were sticking. I noticed the brake pedal was traveling a little farther than usual when slowing down. Soon after I noticed a hissing noise coming from around the brake pedal. Then I lost the brakes pretty much completely. I couldn't find any…

Comfortron AC trouble shooting

Posted by Norman Silverman on July 23, 2018 at 8:54pm 5 Comments

OK, here we go.....

I got the book to troubleshoot the system. INDISPENSABLE to this effort. 

As I do a cursory exam, I see that the AC RECIRC SOLENOID is Cracked (the WHITE one in the engine compartment coming out of the HVAC body with two vacuum hoses on it). I tried to patch it up (cracked all around the base), but it does not look like it will hold. 

PLEASE TELL ME THAT REPLACING THIS PART IS NOT AS DIFFICULT AS I THINK IT IS, But I think it is a bear to…

A/C Issue / Stumped !

Posted by Dana G Cooper on July 23, 2018 at 6:29pm 37 Comments

My 63 CDV factory A/C was trash so I replaced every part in the system and converted to R134 . I also installed a STV bypass kit which eliminated the STV all together and converted the system to a cycling system.  I vacumed and charged the system with 36oz of 134. The system is cycling as it should and the pressures are right at 250 high side, cycle off at 25lbs and cycle back on at about 35lbs. It is making plenty of water on the low side hoses and evaporator drain. There is very good air…
