Sorry for my confusion about the trans that came stock in your Sedan

"1964 Sedan de Ville came with Turbo Hydra-Matic with PRNDL Shift pattern and had 11 qt 6 oz capacity (see page 2-10 in shop manual), indicates 11 qt capacity and about 30 from top of cap to tip so all sounds correct to me.For reference the…"
"it sounds like it's a TH400, by the shift quadrant and the stick, so go with that. all the Devilles in 64 came with the Turbo 400, so if your car is a Sedan Deville and not a 62 series, it's correct. The easy ways to tell the…"

I recently purchased a 64 Cadillac Sedan Deville and I’m pretty sure the engine oil dipstick and Trans dipstick are not from this car. I have seen the dimensions for the oil dipstick elsewhere in the forums so I’m not incredibly worried about finding that out but for the transmission I have no idea.

I finally got around to fixing a leak in my heater core. I decided to check to see if there were any other obvious issues while I had everything torn apart. When I put a vacuum directly (bypassing the transducer) to the power servo it gets to about 10" and then slowly leaks back to zero. The fan will not go to full and the mode door will not open completely. I have read a couple of other posts that said they repaired the power servo leaks. How? Does anyone have one to sell? I just…
