Id like to rebuild the 390 in my 63 Deville wagon.
Is it possible to bore/stroke it to 429 inches?
Also the hydramatic has got to go. Too slow.
Id like to put the TH400 behind it.
Fine looking Eldo
Mostly in the convert i like to see the interior match the exterior color in the 64

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.
