Kurt replied to Frank Murch's discussion One man brake bleeding
"Yes. Definitely. If you did not bench bleed the master cylinder before installing it, that's a problem. I remember that was step #1 when I replaced mine a few years back. It took several minutes to bleed all the air out of the MC."

"I had wondered why the limos were built that way & why the 65 limo was actually a 64. Low production numbers, that's got to be it. Thanks, Kevin."

Kurt replied to Nick Mazza's discussion What fuel do you run? Octane booster?
"I'm running 93 octane in my 63 Coupe DeVille without pinging. I did have a pinging issue in another car (79 Trans Am with 400 SBC). That turned out to be too hot spark plugs. Cooler plugs solved that one."

Hi Kurt, to tell the truth it's not Elmshorn, it's Neuendorf where I come from. This is exact half the way between Elmshorn and Glückstadt. But there are houndreds of Neuendorf in Germany so I decided to say Elmshorn as there is only one in Germany. If you are ever here again you're welcome.

Food Cruise

Posted on January 28, 2015 at 1:39am 2 Comments

A group of my car buddies & I go on a monthly food cruise, sometimes breakfast, lunch or dinner. Last Saturday we took a 40 mile cruise down country roads from Austin TX to Salado TX. We went to a shop there called City Garage that specializes in Lincolns & had lunch afterwards at a good burger joint in Salado. We've been lucky this winter with beautiful weather for the most part with just a few cold rainy days in between. Here's a little video I put together from the cruise. It's a…

Pics from Cadillac show yesterday

Posted on May 12, 2013 at 11:51am 0 Comments

Our local CLC chapter had their annual show at Covert Cadillac in Austin TX yesterday.

There is an interesting story on the 61 limo. A man wanted to purchase a car for some nuns. They reluctantly agreed but insisted that it be bare bones with no radio or air conditioning. When the 61 series 75 showed up of course even without a radio or a/c it was way too ostentatious. The nuns tried to return it to the dealer but they said they could not sell it because it didn't have a/c. So most…

Hardtails Bar & Grill

I went to the annual Lincoln show in Salado TX on Saturday. Yes, I have friends on the dark side. LOL. I brought my 63 CDV of course. There was also a pristine 67 Eldo, & a 89 Allante in the spectator lot so Cadillac was well represented. On the way home we stopped at Hardtails Bar & Grill in Georgetown TX http://www.hardtailsbarandgrill.com/index.html and there crashing through the wall is a full sized front end from a 64…

Flashers

Where do the flashers go in my 64 Deville Convert.  I'm thinking that's why both turn signals stopped working.

Source for Motor mounts and Trans mounts 1964 SDV

Posted by Norman Silverman on January 9, 2019 at 4:23pm 2 Comments

Hi.

Where is the best place to purchase good quality motor mounts/trans mounts for my 1964 SDV? I see that Rock Auto has them for $8 and change, and others for $24 and change. Big difference. Is there a better place to buy them from?

Thanks

Norm

Fuel loss in Carburetor

Posted by Ian Osborne on December 29, 2018 at 11:24pm 16 Comments

Lately if I haven't started my '63 in four or five days it seems that the carburetor has gone dry. The starter cranks for an extended period of time and the engine doesn't come close to firing. I have resorted to pouring a little fuel into the carb to save the starter and battery. This gets it started and it runs fine. It also starts fine after sitting a short while - a couple hours or so.

The fuel pump is new and there is always fuel in the glass bowl of the fuel filter. This, along…

I would like to upholster my caddy back to original.   Does anyone know where I can look at some pictures or photos.  Also, how hard is it to remove the dash?  thanks
