Weird steering gear leak

I have a weird leak coming from the top of my steering gear box where the adjusting bolts are.  It only seems to leak on hard left turns and is definitely not coming from an area that has o-rings. I…Continue

Wanted Non AC Kick Panels, vents and cables

Started this discussion. Last reply by Russ Austin Jan 5, 2018. 2 Replies

Does anyone have a pair of Non AC kick panels, vents and cables for a '64 coupe?  I know most Cads came through with AC so this may be a tall order.Continue

Has anyone out there used a '60 Cadillac dual exhaust on a '64? I know there may be minor mods needed to make it go.  Kanter listed a dual exhaust in their catalog for 1964 but when it arrived, it…Continue

Michael Long replied to Darris Loose's discussion jetaway transmission internal pictures.
"Turbo 400 is probably the very best transmission of the era! They were used behind all Cads after 1964, Big Block Chevrolets, and most high end GM cars.  When my Jetaway bit the dust, conversion to the 400 was the only way to go for me. "

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.

Source for Motor mounts and Trans mounts 1964 SDV

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

Hi.

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?

Thanks

Norm
