Part needed transmission dipstick

Posted on March 30, 2014 at 8:24am 5 Comments

Hello, I am looking for a new dipstick for the transmission on my 64. The top broke off. Not the tube just the stick. If there is a new one that will work, any idea of what to buy. Of anyone have a used one to sell? Thanks for your help.. It's almost warm enough to bring the 64 out of winter hiding!

Looking for cadillac convertible. Just not a 63 or 64

Posted on December 29, 2013 at 12:17pm 0 Comments

Sorry to be off,topic but I would like to add a project to my garage. I think a 1960 convertible would fit the bill. One on a working mans budget. Hard to find here in Wisconsin so I figured maybe someone on this site can find my 64 a friend. Thanks

Looking for right hand manifold and 15"wheels

Posted on December 27, 2013 at 8:54am 2 Comments

Hello, winter is here again and it's time to work on the 64 deville. Looking for 4 wheels in the se Wisconsin area that accept hubcaps and a good right hand exhaust manifold. The manifold can come from anywhere. Shipping should not be too painful. I did find some wheels for $50 each locally but I am not sure if it is a good price. Thanks for your help

Turn signal switch

Posted on March 24, 2013 at 7:25pm 3 Comments

Looking for a source for a turn signal switch. I piggybacked the front signals off the rears because they did not work but am setting up to tow a vintage camper and would like the signals to work correctly. I cannot find a source to replace or repair the switch I have. Thanks in advance

If I remember correctly, the 64 & 63 had the same specifications. I know the 63 specification, so if that is true you can use these. The radial setting is what I run with my 63.

Toe in Bias Ply 3/16"                     Radial 1/16-1/8"

Caster Bias Ply -1°                        Radial + 2°

Camber Bias Ply 0° L    -1/4° R     Radial- Same

HTH, David

63 guidematic issues

Posted by maurice lapoiinte on November 24, 2019 at 3:10pm 0 Comments

 So my 63 guide matic headlamps stay on low beam all the time. I have so far bypassed the system and everything works normal. I have been thru the trouble shooting in the manual but this is where the confusion begins.on my car when the power relay is powered I have low beam and when its not powered I have highbeam, this appears to be opposite what the diagnosis says should be correct.The wiring is all original and no wires have been mixed up.has anyone ever unplugged the 2 wire connector…


Another advantage of the Pertronix III

   Having tried both the II and III I can say the multispark feature of the III offers a smoother idle . It is also easier to install .Does not require removal of the distributor

Stuck at two red (dash) lights!

I hope someone can help solve these two electrical problems that appeared one after the other.

By way of background: The car, a '64 Eldorado has very limited use. It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January-  that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…
