"Kevin, In fact it is the same hood listed for 63 & 64 in the Master Parts Book. Just a few minor mods and you can definitely used a 64 hood on a 63. Since we are drilling down to the details, here are the things you will need to do/consider for…"

Anti-freeze collection bottle

I have a '63 cad Series 62. I was wondering if these cars had anti-freeze over flow collection bottles? When I turn my car off anti-freeze runs out of the over flow hose. If not is it ok to put one in?

Thanks, Kevin

clock repair

Posted on November 28, 2015 at 2:56am 2 Comments

If anyone has a clock that chatters and does not run I think that I have figured out how to fix it. In the pic there is a shaft with some gears, ratchet and winding mechanism. This shaft comes a little loose and drops down a little bit so that the ratchet ( green arrow ) does not line up with it's corresponding gear like it should and sometimes will not engage the teeth on the winding gear to wind the clock and will thus make the contacts chatter. To fix the problem you will need a 12 volt…

63 Trunk detail

Posted by Bob Pontius on April 8, 2021 at 3:07pm 1 Comment

Jason, I liked the detail and information you have provided. I would like to do mine similar to yours. Can you help? Do you have trunk material? OPGI is sending the trunk product for my 63 Fleetwood. But it does cover the entire trunk as yours was done. If you do not have can you give me a reference? Thanks!! Bob

Car lift and jack stands

Posted by Les Eastling on March 23, 2021 at 10:00am 4 Comments

I mentioned during the 63/64 chapter zoom meeting on 3/21 that we had installed a car lift in our garage. Someone asked what kind and I didn't have the info at hand, so here is a link to it and also a link to some tall jack stands we use to add more stability to the car and an additional safety factor. There is something about getting underneath one of these cars that makes me a little nervous! …

Leaky Freeze Plug

Posted by Lee Martin on March 22, 2021 at 12:49pm 7 Comments

Just developed a significant leak coming from a freeze plug right over the starter.  Would this be considered a "cam plug" i.e. like Dorman 17616DS?  Our cars have multiple sizes of plugs on engine block and I want to get the right one.  Also, does anyone know how pricey this is for a shop to fix?  Thanks!
