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…

Noisy vent windows

Posted on April 14, 2013 at 7:55pm 1 Comment

Quick question: Do we all get wind noise through the closed vent windows at highway speed? I do. The rubber has been replaced. I have heard from a couple of friends and fellow car guys that that's just the way vent windows are. If there are any of us out there old enough to remember if the vent windows were loud when the cars were new that would be helpful. I have tried adjusting them here & there but they are far from silent at cruising speed.

HVAC Vacuum Valve Clip-need the one for the Power Control side

Posted by Norman Silverman on September 17, 2018 at 8:15pm 58 Comments

Hi.

Update:

I removed both 7 nipple vacuum valves and called my buddy who owns a machine shop. Tomorrow we'll re-surface the valve faces and then I'll reinstall them. HOWEVER, the one that comes out easily and comes apart with no rivet is on the Power module side. It installs on one side with a small bolt, and on the other it is held on by a clip, WHICH IS MISSING ON MY CAR. I am going to assume it is the same clip that is used on the Control Module side. Anybody got one? Happy…
