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.

Dash removal

Posted by Jake Mickley on October 9, 2019 at 12:06am 9 Comments

Hello everyone,

On a 63 CDV, if a guy wanted to remove the entire dash to get all the metal painted, and do some other things behind there, how would he go about doing that?  I checked here and the shop manual, but can't find a complete guide.

As always, and help or direction is appreciated.  Thanks!
