"My old Falcon work van some mornings, has a lifter rattle. I just turn it off and restart it immediately and MOST times its gone. The car does have in excess of 800,000 klm on it with a rebuilt once in that time, so ijust deal with it. :-) "

"Did you try to start the car when it died while rolling in gear to the side of the road --that would cause a backfire I blew up a new muffler doing that Did the lifter noise settle down and go away after a few minutes of running? Enjoy"

Lifter noise after backfire.

Drove my car to work today and when i went to lunch she just up and stopped running. It didn't take but just a couple of minutes to find the problem and it was the the wire that goes to the condenser.  The car backfired while coasting over to the shoulder of the road, i guess the condenser wire made contact for just a second.I replaced the condenser and points and when i started the engine the lifters were making a lot of noise and has a miss to it now,I pulled the pushrods thinking it may have…See More

Air Suspension - How to Choose and Install

Posted by Michael Forte on February 19, 2018 at 10:00pm 8 Comments

What I enjoy most about old cars is that they can be restored to original condition, radically customized, or somewhere between those extremes, reflecting the owner's individual style.  For my '63 Convertible, I want to achieve a mostly original look, with minor custom touches to make it clean, smooth, and low.  This article is to share my experience in choosing and installing the suspension components to achieve a low stance and a comfortable ride.

I purchased my car in August of…

Emblem Removal

Good Afternoon - my name is Chris and I'm new to the site (well ... officially; I've read a lot of your posts and am very impressed by the great advice and interest).  I'm working on a very original '63 SDV Park Avenue and am attempting to remove the "Park Avenue" emblems in preparation for a repaint.  Once I carefully removed the truck liner, I noticed that the studs are conical shaped and do not appear to have ever had a speed-nut, or some type of push clip ever installed.  I have removed…

Updating the alternator without losing the "Gen" light

Posted by Michael Forte on February 19, 2018 at 12:00am 8 Comments

Our old Cadillacs have a pretty simple electrical system using an externally regulated alternator to keep the battery charged and run the accessories while driving.  First appearing in 1963, the GM 10DN externally regulated alternator was a step up from the bulky generator used on the '62 and earlier.  But newer, internally regulated alternators are now available that can output three times the current in the same size package.  This article explains how I upgraded my charging system to a…
