1964 Cadillac AC with a 7 port Vacuum control valve

Posted on August 24, 2017 at 3:00am 28 Comments

Is anyone having the same problem I'm having ? In park with AC on no vacuum at the fast idle diaphragm, ( so the fast idle diaphragm is out and bumping up the idle) when I put it in drive I'm getting vacuum there. So in park with the AC on the engine is idling at 900 RPM's put in drive it drops down to 450 600 ish. So when your sitting at a red light it feels like the engine is starving for fuel not to mention it's running hotter than it should.…

Can't sleep thinking about my car, am I alone in this ?

Posted on August 23, 2017 at 3:23am 20 Comments

I have had my 64 13 years and I think I might be on the right track to fixing my AC. I think I might have the vaccum lines going to the check valve before the neutral safety switch at the bottom of the steering column in the wrong configuration and Im not sure where the black line going from the power servo rotary valve number 6 vacuum line is going.

Thanks, that was me at Christmas last year :) I feel that is the one thing missing from the Holiday ( Pirates )

did you find something wrong with the window switch, when you took it apart?

At 6:41pm on October 1, 2012, Jason Edge said…

Sometimes the contacts just need cleaning and pulling up to make contact once switch housing is removed from casing. If you still need a 4 way I may have one but going down my needs list right now. I've got a good one but going down my needs list to see if those looking for one earlier still needs one. If not its yours...

At 1:20pm on October 3, 2012, Jason Edge said…

Joe, Make sure the power window wires that go through the door are not broken. Remove the small 1/4" hex metal screws attaching the retainers on the door wire rubber boot (if still in place) and pull the rubber boot back and check that those wires are not broken and in good condition.

If that is not the problem and you still need a switch, I've got a good working 4 way master switch if  you still need one. My other 2 on the "needs list" never got back with me. Shoot me an email to jasonedge@nc.rr.com

At 3:02pm on October 3, 2012, Joe DiIaconi said…

will your 4 way switch work on my 6 way button. you sold me one awhile ago and its black, the one I have is tan. when I but yours in the vent windows would not work but the main windows would. Then I took mine apart & cleaned it but it is not working right. I looked at the wires first & they seam to be OK. I just don't understand how some work with yours & some work with mine.

At 3:06pm on October 3, 2012, Joe DiIaconi said…

O yeah mine is thin & Tan where yours is thick & black so I can't even switch the vent window chip in them both to make them work together. PS I cleaned them with electrical cleaner & 1000 grit sandpaper.

At 3:37pm on October 3, 2012, Jason Edge said…

Joe, the color of the bottom material shoudn't matter. I always test out the switched before I send out. it seems like you have other problems. I would double check the wiring etc.

You can use the main 4 way section of the the 4 way switch I have for the 4 way main window switch part of your 6 way but if the windows you are having issues with is the Vent Windows it will do not you any good.

At 4:56pm on October 3, 2012, Jason Edge said…

The section I'm referring to is that on the left for the 4 way switch below:

Doing disc brake conversion and I need to change out the rims--what to get?

Posted by Preston Bealle on December 7, 2017 at 3:55pm 20 Comments

I'm having a mechanic change to '64 Deville convertible to disc brakes. He used the spacers that came with the kit but one side takes 2 spacers and the other 3, and there is a slight disconnect from the center hub from being so far out. It appears the best solution would not be further tinkering with spacers but a deeper 15" rim made for disc brakes. Does anyone know what rims might work that will allow the existing Cadillac hub caps to fit?  

I have read everything I can find on disc…

The Mileage reading on your speedometer

Posted by Tony and Ginny 429 on November 4, 2017 at 10:57pm 20 Comments

I hope i am not breaking anyones bubble but if you choose to remove the speedometer you can change the mileage on these cars to anything you desire it to be by just adjusting some of its internal parts and changing the numbers

That can lead to a lot of misconduct and cause you to by a car that is not correctly represented by its mileage

Just a heads up to study other aspects of the car to see if the mileage feels right for the wear and tear you may be looking at on a given… Continue
