Most excellent info. I would have liked to do that to the hearse, but that has moved on to a new owner.

Hi Russ!  I would love to see you put a "Big Cad" into one of your '63-64 cars.  While not for the meek and mild, the conversion is a definite improvement, keeps the car "all Cadillac" and eases the sourcing of parts when you are on vacation 500 miles from home and your fuel pump dies! 

I have attached a link from the company where I bought the crate motor. Of course they published this years AFTER I did the job so mine was trial, error, cuss, cuss, cuss and then success!

This lays out the swap up to 1962 but our frames are very similar to the '62 and I can honestly say 90% of the mods described within are valid. Good luck, let me know how else I can help!

Mike

Is there a separate Starter Relay, or does the Solenoid serve that purpose?

Posted by Norman Silverman on August 30, 2019 at 5:57pm 7 Comments

Hello All.

I will be replacing the starter solenoid tomorrow (actually my mechanic will do the work, I'll just supervise). In checking the FSM electrical schematic and chapter verbiage, I don't see anything that looks like (or is referred to as) a starter Relay. It seems the Starter Solenoid serves the function and there's no separate relay. Right or Wrong?

If wrong, where…

Starter Solenoid replacement-how difficult? Where to buy?

Posted by Norman Silverman on August 20, 2019 at 8:24pm 8 Comments

Hello All.

I believe the starter solenoid has gone bad in my 64 DeVille. When I turn the key, often all I get is a click, then if I try a few times again the starter turns perfectly. All battery cables are on tight and the battery is good. So, I believe this problem is the solenoid. Where do I buy the right solenoid and is it necessary to remove the starter in order to swap it out? …

Can anyone shed some light on how to position the complete drive shaft in the correct position? I want to make sure my drive shaft is installed properly.

Thanks
