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

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. "

HVAC Vacuum Valve Clip-need the one for the Power Control side

Posted by Norman Silverman on September 17, 2018 at 8:15pm 6 Comments

Hi.

Update:

I removed both 7 nipple vacuum valves and called my buddy who owns a machine shop. Tomorrow we'll re-surface the valve faces and then I'll reinstall them. HOWEVER, the one that comes out easily and comes apart with no rivet is on the Power module side. It installs on one side with a small bolt, and on the other it is held on by a clip, WHICH IS MISSING ON MY CAR. I am going to assume it is the same clip that is used on the Control Module side. Anybody got one? Happy…

7 vacuum valve-need a good one or someone to recondition mine

Posted by Norman Silverman on September 15, 2018 at 5:44pm 12 Comments

So, I've put my 7 vacuum valve from the control head side to the test, and it failed. I looked at the instructions for re-conditioning it and unless I am missing something, the instructions are missing something (about how to take off the clip that provides the tension that holds the two pieces together). 

In any case, I can't do this particular repair so I am looking for a new valve (not likely), or a good re-conditioned one, or someone who has done this before and would do mine for…
