"nothing at all.  the tube just goes in to the reservoir, no moving parts there.  Just put a catch pan under it, because fluid will come out, and clean around the tube beforehand so that  no dirt falls in."

Kim K Kaiser replied to Kim K Kaiser's discussion transmission dip stick tube
"Can the tube be pulled completely detached fron the transmission or does it need to have some of the end left in.  No springs or washers or non visible parts will come zinging out will they, if you completely remove the tube.   Thanks"

transmission dip stick tube

i read on a prior topic about this leaking and mine did and i put silicone around it a couple years ago, well, it came loose when i detached the ext man from the block where the tube attaches.. i should have done it when it was open more, but,,anyway,, can you just pull the tube out completely and use the silicone under the dirt cap. or does the trans pan have to come off, replace the o ring, then use the sealant on the dirt cap?the old discussion was a bit unclear to me on that SincerelySee More

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.

I just wanted to say a thank you to Kurt for steering me to the tech tips page on V.I.N. locations.  Excellent information.  Thanks a bundle.

V.I.N. where?

Where can I find the V.I.N. on a 63 convertible?  The usual space at the base of the interior windshield on the driver's side has been decimated by weather.

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! …
