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!

What is your preferred cruising speed on highways with your classic Cadillac? What I mean is the speed that allows for relatively quiet and comfortable cruising without slowing down other traffic.…Continue

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 2 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

Fuel loss in Carburetor

Posted by Ian Osborne on December 29, 2018 at 11:24pm 16 Comments

Lately if I haven't started my '63 in four or five days it seems that the carburetor has gone dry. The starter cranks for an extended period of time and the engine doesn't come close to firing. I have resorted to pouring a little fuel into the carb to save the starter and battery. This gets it started and it runs fine. It also starts fine after sitting a short while - a couple hours or so.

The fuel pump is new and there is always fuel in the glass bowl of the fuel filter. This, along…
