"It seems that these are a generic GM part as Tony pointed out available as rebuilt units. Somewhere I recall a post about substituting a steering gear from a full size '73 Olds that was a direct fit and added the variable ratio feature for…"
"Are you talking about the steering gear unit bolted to the frame (the steering shaft is attached to it) or the power steering pump mounted on the front of the engine that is run by a belt?
I'm asking because the pump typically whines when…"
"Have a spotter look while you turn the steering wheel to determine where your leak is. My power steering pressure hose started leaking and was replaced a few years ago and it might save you a few bucks if that's all it is. "
A used or rebuilt unit would be the way to go You may be able to get one here --on this site They need to be rebuilt by a pro as best i know
Someone on the site should offer a replacement if they have one available --shortly

"Silly question and a bit late but who sells the best original looking headliner? I see lots of companies out there, some of whom only offer white, black or green? Some offer non original materials cut and sewn to original specs but obviously…"
"Some things I forgot:
Before you start, fold the new lining in half and mark the center line at the front, back, and all the listing pockets for the rods. Then, find the center of the car's roof and mark that with chalk (if the…"

My '64 Cadillac DeVille had been sitting for awhile while I was travelling this summer and when I came home it had some issues starting. After replacing the plugs and the ignition coil, it was running better than it had in a long time but the brakes were sticking. I noticed the brake pedal was traveling a little farther than usual when slowing down. Soon after I noticed a hissing noise coming from around the brake pedal. Then I lost the brakes pretty much completely. I couldn't find any…
I got the book to troubleshoot the system. INDISPENSABLE to this effort.

PLEASE TELL ME THAT REPLACING THIS PART IS NOT AS DIFFICULT AS I THINK IT IS, But I think it is a bear to…
My 63 CDV factory A/C was trash so I replaced every part in the system and converted to R134 . I also installed a STV bypass kit which eliminated the STV all together and converted the system to a cycling system. I vacumed and charged the system with 36oz of 134. The system is cycling as it should and the pressures are right at 250 high side, cycle off at 25lbs and cycle back on at about 35lbs. It is making plenty of water on the low side hoses and evaporator drain. There is very good air…
