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

Mark S Anderson replied to Christian Doerk's discussion Comfort Control and voltage from the voltage regulator or alternator
"a one volt difference at the battery shouldn't create a one volt drop at the transducer, the control panel circuit should compensate for voltage fluctuations.  My 66 drops to 12.7v with the AC and lights on but the climate control…"

Mark S Anderson replied to Andy Kalnins's discussion courtesy light wiring
"The voltage you see on the ground side when the circuit isn't on is normal; the voltage on the right side is "leeching" through the filament of the bulb on the left side, because they are all connected.  This is very good news,…"

Mark S Anderson replied to Andy Kalnins's discussion courtesy light wiring
"Andy, everything you need to know is already at hand.  If you ground the black wire with a bulb in place, the bulb lights.  So you have no ground at the jamb switches or the seat switch.  You should start by repairing what you know is…"

Mark S Anderson replied to Andy Kalnins's discussion courtesy light wiring
"All of the courtesy lights in the circuit are tied together, so that if one switch is closed, they all come on.  Therefore, it's a series circuit.  The black wire has power because the voltage is travelling thru all of the bulbs in…"

Mark S Anderson replied to Sam G's discussion Comfort Control Temperature Dial Calibration
"the ground that controls the transducer voltage is thru the 1/4 screws that hold the circuit board to the comfort control panel , and through the dial.  the dial is a variable resistor going to ground, if this is open, then that's a…"

"Like I said, I don't have tim's book, so i'm not familiar with the test, but if you're performing it correctly, it seems like either their is an open circuit inside the transducer, the amplifier ground is bad, or the amplifier…"

Mark S Anderson replied to Sam G's discussion Comfort Control Temperature Dial Calibration
"I don't know Tim's book's procedures, since I don't have a copy,  but if the voltage is high,  then one of the resistors in circuit is likely shorted (low resistance).   I forgot to list the temp dial itself as a…"

Mark S Anderson replied to Sam G's discussion Comfort Control Temperature Dial Calibration
"The voltage to the transducer is regulated by the "sensor string", which are the ambient sensor near the blower, in-car sensor in the dash, and duct sensor in the air duct plenum.  In the 1964 shop manual, you'll find a chart…"

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…

Radiator And Shrouds

Posted by Dominic Salemi on April 24, 2019 at 3:36pm 1 Comment

Hello

Anyone have a decent radiator and shrouds and hardware for a 1964 Cadillac deville. I have an alum. radiator and I'm deciding on to fix it or back to the original one. If I fix it I won't need parts.

Thanks

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…
