"The resistor is behind the glove box. Be carefull removing the glove box, as the corners will break off if man handled.  Just find the sweet spot and the insert will slide out. No need to remove the glove box door."

"James, on the heater control head, there are 2 switches. A fan speed switch and a master switch. With the ignition off, move the top right lever from off to heat. You should hear a click. That is the master switch, and its job is to send power to…"

"I would bet that the switch is bad. Take it out and spray brake parts cleaner inside it and move the lever around to clean the contacts. The fan is suppose to shut off when it is in the full left position. That's the off position and the fan…"

"James I would test the resistors before going out and buying a new one. It still could be the switch or a tired blower motor that will only turn on high voltage. "

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…

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
