It appears many holes were not open when heads were pulled. Is it a wrong gasket or flipped gasket?

Clock removal

Posted on October 9, 2015 at 11:33am 2 Comments

Hey all, Couldn't get my clock out yesterday so I had a rare moment of clarity. Rubber band from the band used to hold broccoli together. After 20 minutes of cussing, put it on, worked like a charm.

Marcellus, to answer your question you posted on the chatt site;  you do not need to take the tranny out with the motor.

I just finished my motor install on my 63, so if you have any questions, I'll help out.

BTW, I'm in Tucson.

64 Recirc/Fresh Air Door Actuator replaced; FROM THE INSIDE.

Posted by Norman Silverman on February 4, 2019 at 11:21pm 8 Comments

I am happy to report that I have successfully replaced the Fresh Air/Recirc door actuator that is located on the blower box-and have done so without having to remove the blower box. I did it by taking out the glove box and attacking it from the back.  It took several days, LOTS of patience and some band-aids, but it is done. THE most difficult part -BY FAR- is to remove and then replace the screw that sits on the actuator arm, connecting it to the fresh…

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

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


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?
