Yep, it's old, dirty, cracked, and glued.  My understanding is this style reservoir was used in the first half of 63 before they changed the design.  The replacement I have on my car is the later…Continue

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'm wanting to replace the coils and shock absorbers on all four corners. Does anyone here have a recommendation for certain coils and shocks I should go with? 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

HVAC Vacuum Valve Clip-need the one for the Power Control side

Posted by Norman Silverman on September 17, 2018 at 8:15pm 6 Comments

Hi.

Update:

I removed both 7 nipple vacuum valves and called my buddy who owns a machine shop. Tomorrow we'll re-surface the valve faces and then I'll reinstall them. HOWEVER, the one that comes out easily and comes apart with no rivet is on the Power module side. It installs on one side with a small bolt, and on the other it is held on by a clip, WHICH IS MISSING ON MY CAR. I am going to assume it is the same clip that is used on the Control Module side. Anybody got one? Happy…

7 vacuum valve-need a good one or someone to recondition mine

Posted by Norman Silverman on September 15, 2018 at 5:44pm 12 Comments

So, I've put my 7 vacuum valve from the control head side to the test, and it failed. I looked at the instructions for re-conditioning it and unless I am missing something, the instructions are missing something (about how to take off the clip that provides the tension that holds the two pieces together). 

In any case, I can't do this particular repair so I am looking for a new valve (not likely), or a good re-conditioned one, or someone who has done this before and would do mine for…
