"The O ring will sit snug into the machined groove. You will need to roll the O ring over the threads into the groove."

"Yes I noticed the machined groove in the drain plug, but when I torque it down the o ring squeezes out and rips.  I will take closer look maybe I got the wrong O ring. Thanks Russ."

Drain plug and speedo bullet seal.

Hello,Sealing  up my 63 Jetaway duel coupling and questioning the drain plug and the speedo bullet, both used an o ring for sealing. This does not seam proper as the o ring gets crushed when torqueing. And my $86.00 seal kit did not come with any alternative. What is the proper seal for the drain plug and speedo bullet to case? I'm thinking a copper ring would be most practical. Also, what type of modern trany fluid do we use in these units?Thank you, PeteSee More

1963 Eldorado convertible boot

Posted by Les Eastling on February 27, 2020 at 10:33am 1 Comment

I need a used convertible boot for a 63 Cadillac convertible - condition or color is not an issue since it will be used as a pattern for making a new one. One from either a 62 series convertible or an Eldorado would work. I know I am searching for hen's teeth here... but you never know unless you ask!
