"Shocking" Question

Does anyone know when air shocks hit the market?  My '63 has always had air shocks on the rear, with a very official-looking port built into the rear.  Were these an option way back when or just…Continue

Hi folks, I have a newly chromed 1963 front bumper lower center impact bar (the big piece) for sale.  It has not been installed on any car since being re-chromed.  However, the mounting plate on passenger side is bent out of alignment and doesn't line up flush with the passenger bumper end.  The plate which mounts to bracket on passenger side may also be out of alignment, but I'm not sure.I'm asking $150 for the piece, plus $150 shipping, unless you live near Michigan and want to just pick it…See More

1963 Carter Carb Mystery

Posted on May 17, 2016 at 11:30am 6 Comments

Last weekend, I was trying (vainly) to remove the blower motor cover in the engine compartment when I noticed something strange:  A black rubber hose, originating from a vacuum actuator on the passenger side of my Carter carb, that went nowhere.  The previous owner had carefully tucked the free end underneath another vacuum actuator attached to the blower motor cover.  There was a plastic nipple stuck in the free end of the hose, meaning the other end led to another hose.  I looked…

Beware OPGI Transmission Cooler Lines

Posted on May 22, 2015 at 8:30am 3 Comments

The lines sold for 1963 & 64 Cadillacs are NOT good on all cars.  Specifically, they do NOT fit Series 62 or 75 vehicles. 

The lines they sell have threaded ends/screws on both ends.  Refer to your shop manuals and you will see this is NOT the correct fitting for the transmission ends.  A complicated setup involving beaded tube endings and sleeves with O-rings connected by rubber hose & clamps is required.

After two lengthly phone conversations with customer service it…

Pinion Angle

Posted on May 19, 2015 at 3:49pm 8 Comments

My mechanic says the downward angle of my pinion has chewed up my driveshaft and will do it again unless we raise it.  Problem is there doesn't seem to be any direct means of adjusting pinion angle on 1963 Cadillac Series 62.  Anyone else go through this?  What was the resolution?
