Hello all! It is time for a new project, and your input is being solicited.  Initially I had zero movement for the power 6-way seat, but could hear the motor clicking so I knew it was getting power.…Continue

Sam’s ‘64 DeVille Timing and Idle Fiasco

So, in my infinite wisdom, I decided to tinker with my timing, distributor, and air/fuel mixture.  I took a perfectly running engine, and threw a wrench in it. Why? I found it odd that the timing…Continue

"Thank you Mark. That was very helpful, and resulted in 10V across all three wires. I will try to find the grounds for the CC system, and try to figure out which one is the culprit."

Comfort Control Temperature Dial Calibration

Anyone ever recalibrate their CC thermostat, and have issues with voltage to the transducer staying high? Trying to figure out why my vacuum to the servo won’t drop off when cooling, and troubleshooting with Tim’s book doesn’t go into details about what to do if you can’t obtain 6 - 6.5 volts to the transducer...that I can find.SamSee More

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
