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.

Bad Guage?

Posted by Karl Schwarz on August 26, 2020 at 3:08pm 6 Comments

So I am troubleshooting my fuel gauge issue. I bought a new sender and tested it. It  it goes from 1-ohm (empty) to 35-ohm (full). When I test it (outside the tank), when the float is in the up (full) position it only moves the gauge to about 1/2 full. When at the bottom (empty) position the gauge shows empty. This is the same issue I have when I fill and then use the gas in the tank - the gauge never reads ore than half full. Based on what I've read on this thread it would seem like the…
