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

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. "

Source for Motor mounts and Trans mounts 1964 SDV

Posted by Norman Silverman on January 9, 2019 at 4:23pm 2 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?

Thanks

Fuel loss in Carburetor

Posted by Ian Osborne on December 29, 2018 at 11:24pm 16 Comments

Lately if I haven't started my '63 in four or five days it seems that the carburetor has gone dry. The starter cranks for an extended period of time and the engine doesn't come close to firing. I have resorted to pouring a little fuel into the carb to save the starter and battery. This gets it started and it runs fine. It also starts fine after sitting a short while - a couple hours or so.
