"Yes, sorr . You are correct.  I was thinkin rpm, however. 18, 19, 21 are the correct psi's after the car gets really heated up after extended driving.  The only time it stays atthe manual spec is at initial warm up to driving…"

"Merry Christmas, Kim. I am sure the 2100, 1900, 1800 psi's are typo's. Keep in mind you can always go back and edit a post once it is submitted. I'll take a guess and extrapolate that the 30 to 32 psi at 35 mph would peg you about…"

"OK. so "may be 23 at 30 mph." Not to beat this to death but I would have warmed up the engine, got a reading at idle, found a straight stretch of open flat road, pegged it dead on 30 mph and got my reading. The stop and go just driving…"

Kim, I have a 63 Coupe Deville, all stock. I had the exact same problem and I know what you are going through. I have a 600 cca battery in my car. I firmly agree with the others about using the highest amp battery you can find. I have my timing set at 5 degrees. The fuel additive is what seemed to help the most . My engine was pre - igniting when hot and the stock starter just could not overcome it. As I mentioned the additive made the biggest difference. I cannot find the paperwork on my starter but if you google high torque starters you will find it. The cost was around $300.00.

Good morning!  I am Matias Adrogue.  I bought a 1964 Cadillac coupe de ville last year and am real close to the final restoration details!  I call her “Jaws 64”.  Pics will be posted soon.  I need advise regarding a AC/heater.  It came stock in the vehicle but it does not work.  A mechanic gave me a bid of $1700 to replace and repair.  I am ready to install a new system - Vintage Air or Old Air Products from Fort Worth Texas.  I would greatly appreciate your thoughts.  I read the great write…
