"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…"

"Firstly thank you It is the th400 from my knowledge. Gear selector is PRNDL. The dipstick is as you described 30” and says 11 Qrts."

Russ Austin replied to Steven Gaynor's discussion Transmission Dipstick dimensions
"Going to assume you have the Turbo Hydramatic with a PNRDDL gear selector pattern.  The dip stick is 30 inches from the bottom to the top of the cap. It also says 11qts use only cadillac approved transmission fluid. "

Transmission Dipstick dimensions

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. What leads me to believe the dipsticks are wrong is the trans dipstick says capacity 11quarts and after consulting the shop manual it says capacity is 9 and the engine dipstick shows a lot more oil…See More

64 Power Servo vacuum leak

Posted by Kent Prows on June 27, 2020 at 4:02pm 0 Comments

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…
