Hello everyone, hope all is well.Winter has arrived in the great state of Minnesota.  My Cadillac decided to put herself down for the winter with a brake hose leak.  While I am in there swapping out the brake fluid hoses, I am taking this opportunity to swap out worn suspension components.  I am ordering parts and see that the upper control arm bushings come in either 1.5 inch OD or 1 7/16 OD.I have a 63 coupe DeVille, which ones do I need?  I know I have seen this discussed previously but I…See More

Hello everyone. It's been a while, I hope all is well.The projects are ongoing with the Cadillac as you can imagine. I'm planning for the winter projects at the moment.

I know the factory coils are different based on the build. It's a 63 coupe DeVille with AC. I'm not looking for nos, just the best fit. Thanks.P.S. Tony I apologize for…See More

Looking for a power antenna

Since I purchased my Cadillac, there has been some additional wiring that has always bothered me.  Finally tracked it down today.  The antenna on the car is not factory and let's just say the previous owner, well, "made it work."I would really like to get this cleaned up and back to factory.  Anyone have a working factory power antenna for a 63 coupe deville they are willing to part with?  Thanks.--JakeSee 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
