Oil dipstick sleeve

Posted on June 12, 2014 at 4:30pm 4 Comments

I need a sleeve for the oil dipstick on my '63. What other years fit?

Transmission Removal

Posted on May 3, 2014 at 7:19am 8 Comments

I am planning on pulling the engine out of my '63 today and send it out for a rebuild. Thinking about doing the same with transmission. Is it easier to pull them together or separately? Does anyone have any tips that deviate from or add to the shop manual?

Engine Trouble

Posted on April 27, 2014 at 4:43pm 19 Comments

If my engine is ruined, what are some good options others have used and how much do they cost? Buy rebuilt? Rebuild myself? New engine? Pay someone to rebuild? I also need to redo my transmission.

Valve cover gaskets can be ordered through most local Auto Parts Stores.  You can get the Fel-Pro VS13333C through AutoZone for around $21 + s/h & taxes. They are the thick cork and rubber filled type.

The biggest mistake in installing valve covers and gaskets is over-torqueing. Make sure the rims of the valve cover are flat.  If not take two boards...one on top and one on bottom and flatten with a hammer. Per shop manual valve covers are torqued to 28 in/lb or about 2 1/3 ft/lb.

The Bill Hirsch 1949 to 1976 is the closest to the original.  Click Here for a PDF cheat sheet I did of engine paint colors. You will see contact info for Bill Hirsch paint. Also Click Here for an engine painting tips I put together and included in a recent chapter newsletter.

For engine paint colors check out this link: http://6364cadillac.ning.com/profiles/blogs/engine-colors

I would steer clear of the Seymour paint if you are trying to stay original. If you like the lighter brighter color I have 3 cans I will let go for $15 + s/h just to get them off my self.  Here is a comparison I did between the

Bill Hirsch and Seymour paints: http://6364cadillac.ning.com/profiles/blog/show?id=6543066%3ABlogPost%3A49413&commentId=6543066%3AComment%3A49319

Posted by Matias J. Adrogue on January 7, 2020 at 11:11am 9 Comments

Good morning!  I am Matias Adrogue.  I bought a 1964 Cadillac coupe de ville last year and am real close to the final restoration details!  I call her “Jaws 64”.  Pics will be posted soon.  I need advise regarding a AC/heater.  It came stock in the vehicle but it does not work.  A mechanic gave me a bid of $1700 to replace and repair.  I am ready to install a new system - Vintage Air or Old Air Products from Fort Worth Texas.  I would greatly appreciate your thoughts.  I read the great write…
