reality sets in

Another year went by, and I still haven't gotten around to touching my 64 Eldorado.     I don't think anymore that I ever will.  So after the year turns, I'm gonna try and sell it.   Not sad though,…Continue

"I forget,  but it can only go one way, which is the way that it fits the notch in the pan gasket.follow up question... did you use a little bit of RTV where the pan side gasket meets this seal?"

"Yes, that seal is correct and not the cause of your leak from what I can see.  Can you take a pic of the other half.  See how much faster you're moving now?  gaining valuable experience here."

Radio Belts

Posted on January 22, 2017 at 11:20am 10 Comments

I just finished repairing a few 66 stereos, and after fixing up the circuits to make them play again (another discussion), I was left with the usual problem; trying to find a belt that wouldn't slip.

I've tried:

  • 'glue together' kits -- they can break off at any time, so no-go.
  • rubber dial belts available online -- they stretch and…

64 eldo bench seat covers

Posted on February 16, 2015 at 9:00am 12 Comments

Just getting started on a new set of seat covers, this is as far as I made it last night.    Only using vinyl, but perforations are pretty similar, and I'll have the patterns made for a leather copy later on.   I'll post pics up as I go forward.

baku wood

Posted on July 18, 2014 at 9:17pm 10 Comments

So I bought a sheet of paper backed makore (baku) veneer to redo the wood on my 64.  It seems like the original has a urethane clear coat.  What's everybody using for a final finish?   I have plenty extra to play with, I think I want to start with an automotive clear urethane, but what is the norm?   It says "hand-rubbed in the advertising, which would lead me to think it was lacquer, but lacquer thinner tests make me think they used urethane.  

Glue suggestions would also help, I'm…

63 guidematic issues

Posted by maurice lapoiinte on November 24, 2019 at 3:10pm 0 Comments

 So my 63 guide matic headlamps stay on low beam all the time. I have so far bypassed the system and everything works normal. I have been thru the trouble shooting in the manual but this is where the confusion begins.on my car when the power relay is powered I have low beam and when its not powered I have highbeam, this appears to be opposite what the diagnosis says should be correct.The wiring is all original and no wires have been mixed up.has anyone ever unplugged the 2 wire connector…

Another advantage of the Pertronix III

Posted by Doug Scarrow on November 23, 2019 at 11:12am 1 Comment

   Having tried both the II and III I can say the multispark feature of the III offers a smoother idle . It is also easier to install .Does not require removal of the distributor

Stuck at two red (dash) lights!

Posted by Jeff Kinzler on November 3, 2019 at 10:00pm 9 Comments

I hope someone can help solve these two electrical problems that appeared one after the other.

By way of background: The car, a '64 Eldorado has very limited use. It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January-  that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…
