"For me, the vacuum advancer adjusted all 15 degrees at idle when connected to driver-side port. it made the idle rough and car also vibrated in non-cadillac way. I will fix the port in 20-80 vacuum valve during winter."

"The vacuum advance will work in both the left and right vacuum ports on the carb but produces more power on the left side of the carb as it improves the cars timing curve over the stock one for more performance  Enjoy "

Dash removal

Posted by Jake Mickley on October 9, 2019 at 12:06am 9 Comments

Hello everyone,

On a 63 CDV, if a guy wanted to remove the entire dash to get all the metal painted, and do some other things behind there, how would he go about doing that?  I checked here and the shop manual, but can't find a complete guide.

As always, and help or direction is appreciated.  Thanks!
