1963-64 3-Prong Door Switch Available

I found I had one of these when I went to install an aftermarket switch.  It is a 3-prong door switch from 1963 convertible.  It is missing the push-button but the spring inside still works fine,…Continue

Is there a trick to popping the rear seat cushion in 1963 convertible models?  The manual says to push back and lift up once free of the retainers.  But the metal rod inside the front bottom seat is…Continue

Has anyone purchased one of these for a 1963 recently?  Kanter no longer offers them and nobody else seems to, either.  I tried Classic Exhaust everyone on this forum raves about, but they only offer…Continue

Does anyone have experience with leaky pump or connections to pump?  I have a slow one and it's driving me crazy trying to see where the fluid is coming out.  It is definitely from the pump area (not…Continue

1963-64 3-Prong Door Switch Available

I found I had one of these when I went to install an aftermarket switch.  It is a 3-prong door switch from 1963 convertible.  It is missing the push-button but the spring inside still works fine, when I insert a pencil and push down.  I guess the plastic button got snapped off at some point.  If you're handy you might be able to install the push button from an aftermarket switch.  Anyone interested?  If so, let me know.See More

"Thanks Russ, but strike two.  Pushing down accomplishes nothing, no more than someone sitting in the seat.  As I said, the bar won't bend backwards and the seat doesn't budge."

"The entire seat bottom needs to move back. Push the seat front down and back.  You will have to wedge yourself between the rear and front seat to get leverage. "

Rear Seat Removal

Is there a trick to popping the rear seat cushion in 1963 convertible models?  The manual says to push back and lift up once free of the retainers.  But the metal rod inside the front bottom seat is so stiff it's like trying to bend a brick wall.  Am I missing something?  Has anyone successfully done this???See More

Stainless Exhaust System

Has anyone purchased one of these for a 1963 recently?  Kanter no longer offers them and nobody else seems to, either.  I tried Classic Exhaust everyone on this forum raves about, but they only offer for one year - 1956.  That won't cut it...can't find any place that still sells these!See More

Lee Martin replied to Sammy's discussion Whining noise from outer space
"Right.  Intake manifold leaks and sticky PCV whistle has nothing to do with RPM.  My leak and sticky PCV whistling were not RPM related at all.  PS:  The intake manifold gasket is not part of the carb.  It's between the…"

Lee Martin replied to Sammy's discussion Whining noise from outer space
"I agree.  I'll bet a year's wages it's either PCV or intake gasket.  Those both cause intermittent whistling and both disappear (usually) when idling."

Lee Martin replied to Sammy's discussion Whining noise from outer space
"I would also try servicing the PCV valve.  It's a very quick and simple operation.  If you are only driving in the summer it may well be stuck or tacky enough to stick in a partially open mode sometimes.  This could cause the…"

Rear Side Window Stainless Sill Removal

Posted on June 24, 2019 at 3:07pm 2 Comments

I'm looking to replace a piece of the stainless trim that sits on the outside of the car like a sill outside the rear passenger side window.  I can just barely see one screw at one end but does the door panel and/or window need to come out to access this?  If anyone has done this I'd like to learn what is involved.  Here's a photo of the piece I'm talking about:…

For sale: 1963 Cadillac front center impact bar $100 + shipping

Posted on April 3, 2018 at 2:12pm 0 Comments

Offering this newly re-chromed 1963 Cadillac front center impact bar for sale, $100 plus whatever it costs to ship it from Detroit to your location.  

The unit fits perfect on driver's side but does not sit flush on passenger side.  I am told someone needs to take a wooden block and hammer and bang the passenger side lower corner in to make it fit right.  If you know how to do this stuff, this is the piece for you.

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…

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…
