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!

Help with this repair Estimate.

Posted by Dj Lethal on December 13, 2018 at 7:05pm 11 Comments

I recently took my car to a “Cadillac” “Specialist here in Los angles CA.

After leaving my car to diagnose my steering column for not shifting properly. I get this txt from the shop owner. Mind you I just got the car and wanted to at least shift from the column without having to shift for the engine bay. Also wanted to get a price on dash lights to work. Basically I’m trying to feel out if he’s putting gravy on the labor.

Although the radiator was not leaking, nor was the car running hot, I tool out the radiator today to have it boiled out and rodded out. Then I changed the oil and filter (filter is very easy to reach with the radiator out), then the thermostat got changed. 

I'll have the radiator back from the shop on Monday, and will reinstall it then.

The front lower ends are gone but what's there looks to be in decent condition and a fair price in today's market. I have no connection, just passing it along in case it might work for someone.
