"Thanks Kurt for covering my backside with the hood V. I forgot.   The valance is an extension to the hood. On the 64, it is part of the upper grill. The 63 has it mounted to the bottom of the hood.  I'd post a picture, but my computer…"

"Also the 63 "V" hood ornament is smaller so the holes don't line up. You can just use the 64 hood ornament if that doesn't bother you. Otherwise it would require filling in the 64 holes, & drilling the 63 holes and whatever…"

Russ Austin replied to Kevin Kennedy's discussion cadillac hood
"Yes, and no. It fits perfectly, but the 63 has the lower valance while the 64 does not.  The 64 has the dimples in the metal for the fasteners, while the 63 has holes where the fasteners go.  You can just screw the lower valance to a 64…"

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…

Posted by maurice lapoiinte on November 24, 2019 at 3:10pm 0 Comments

 So my 63 guide matic headlamps stay on low beam all the time. I have so far bypassed the system and everything works normal. I have been thru the trouble shooting in the manual but this is where the confusion begins.on my car when the power relay is powered I have low beam and when its not powered I have highbeam, this appears to be opposite what the diagnosis says should be correct.The wiring is all original and no wires have been mixed up.has anyone ever unplugged the 2 wire connector…

I hope someone can help solve these two electrical problems that appeared one after the other.

By way of background: The car, a '64 Eldorado has very limited use. It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January-  that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…
