Replacment springs with square ends

Hello,Purchased new front springs from Springs and things for my 63. Both ends are square cut as opposed to the tapper cut on the originals. My question is where to position the lower spring end?  The service manual has the tapered end falling between the raised bump and the shock center line. doesn't seem right having the spring end hanging off the control arm. I called the company and they confirmed I have the correct springs.Thank you.See More

Where do the flashers go in my 64 Deville Convert.  I'm thinking that's why both turn signals stopped working.

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

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.

The fuel pump is new and there is always fuel in the glass bowl of the fuel filter. This, along…
