can anyone help me with a driveshaft ? I have a 1963 Cadillac 62 series 4dr with the hydro-matic trans. I need the male splined shaft on the front of the rear driveshaft section. the piece with the nut attached by clip.id be willing to buy a shaft if its not horribly priced.
On a 63 CDV, if a guy wanted to remove the entire dash to get all the metal painted, and do some other things behind there, how would he go about doing that? I checked here and the shop manual, but can't find a complete guide.
As always, and help or direction is appreciated. Thanks!
Thanks for letting me join the club. Picked up this ‘64 Coupe Deville a few months ago out of Beverly MA, the car has few stickers on it from various Cadillac clubs, didn’t know if anyone might recognize it from it’s “Glory days.” Everything seems pretty healthy except for the body and some very Mickey Mouse repairs, was wondering if anyone had any leads on…Continue
3655S carb, and a 3656S carb .I know the difference is one is for A/C and the other in for a non A/C car . Now the question is : can I use the carb bowl from the A/C car on the non A/C car ? They look the same set up next to each other
I have been about to pull my hair out with my 64 rear main seal leaking. I have had it replaced twice and to no avail it still is dripping. I have had to engine rebuilt twice and I have to believe that all parts were replaced when rebuilt but not totatlly 100% sure. My mechanic says that it could be the thrust bearing could possibly be bad cause he did say there was more than usual movement in the crank that he was use to seeing...could he be possibly right about that? I just don't want to…Continue
I will be replacing the starter solenoid tomorrow (actually my mechanic will do the work, I'll just supervise). In checking the FSM electrical schematic and chapter verbiage, I don't see anything that looks like (or is referred to as) a starter Relay. It seems the Starter Solenoid serves the function and there's no separate relay. Right or Wrong?
If wrong, where…Continue
I believe the starter solenoid has gone bad in my 64 DeVille. When I turn the key, often all I get is a click, then if I try a few times again the starter turns perfectly. All battery cables are on tight and the battery is good. So, I believe this problem is the solenoid. Where do I buy the right solenoid and is it necessary to remove the starter in order to swap it out? …Continue
Can anyone shed some light on how to position the complete drive shaft in the correct position? I want to make sure my drive shaft is installed properly.
I have found a very good replacement part for the Upper A Arm Bumpers. The top part is identical to the originals the bottom can be used as is or after a few minutes with a belt sander can be ground to the V shape as the originals were. The replacement bumpers are for a 2001 to 2005 S10 Sanoma or Blazer. Part number is on the box in the photos. First photo is the box next to the box is the S10 part and an original. Next photo shows my sanded down part next to an original.…Continue
Replacing my convertible roof motor.
Has anyone any experience or advice on replacing the roof motor on a 1964 Cadillac Deville .
Can anyone give me some information on what to use to secure my hood insulation to the hood.
Can someone tell me what color the hood hinges should be? I've seen both silver and gold cadmium plating colors on the cars. Thanks
I'm looking to replace a piece of the stainless trim that sits on the outside of the car like a sill outside the rear passenger side window. I can just barely see one screw at one end but does the door panel and/or window need to come out to access this? If anyone has done this I'd like to learn what is involved. Here's a photo of the piece I'm talking about:…Continue
What do you think?
Anyone have a decent radiator and shrouds and hardware for a 1964 Cadillac deville. I have an alum. radiator and I'm deciding on to fix it or back to the original one. If I fix it I won't need parts.
I am happy to report that I have successfully replaced the Fresh Air/Recirc door actuator that is located on the blower box-and have done so without having to remove the blower box. I did it by taking out the glove box and attacking it from the back. It took several days, LOTS of patience and some band-aids, but it is done. THE most difficult part -BY FAR- is to remove and then replace the screw that sits on the actuator arm, connecting it to the fresh…Continue
Where do the flashers go in my 64 Deville Convert. I'm thinking that's why both turn signals stopped working.
Where is the best place to purchase good quality motor mounts/trans mounts for my 1964 SDV? I see that Rock Auto has them for $8 and change, and others for $24 and change. Big difference. Is there a better place to buy them from?
