Although the radiator was not leaking, nor was the car running hot, I tool out the radiator today to have it boiled out and rodded out. Then I changed the oil and filter (filter is very easy to reach with the radiator out), then the thermostat got changed.
I'll have the radiator back from the shop on Monday, and will reinstall it then.
The front lower ends are gone but what's there looks to be in decent condition and a fair price in today's market. I have no connection, just passing it along in case it might work for someone.

I went to replace the bulb in the trunk light socket and was met by something I had never seen before: the socket appears to be made in two thicknesses. First a wide one with appropriate cut outs on the side where the bulb nipples fit in, then a long slender shaft (with a cardboard tubular insert) down to the positive contact. I've never seen anything like this. Only thing I can figure is that it is designed to have a metal rod inside the cardboard shaft that…Continue
I got the rebuilt Power module back from the rebuilder and reinstalled it.
It's been a while since i posted on this topic so I will remind those reading that the main problem I have been chasing is that i can't get air out of the AC or the heater ducts-even though the heat/ac vacuum solenoid is working. Today, I found out why.
I installed the newly rebuilt Module but it…Continue
If anyone is interested there is a front lower bumper end for sale on ebay for $750. It looks to be a good restoration. I wish I had the $750 because I have been looking for one of those forever!

I finally got the car back from the body shop, where they color sanded and polished it out. I am literally blown away by the result! Now, it looks great from 2 feet but if you look REALLY CLOSE you can see that the paint is not as glossy as it should be, but Sothe end result is much better than what I started with. The interior is still original.

Here's something cool I stumbled across on Youtube. Pretty cool. It's like a power washer with sand.
I want to replace the radiator in my 64 DeVille.
Which vendor is a good source for an OEM type unit?
While waiting for my AC transducer and power module to come back, I started to pay a little attention to the rear door window, which works but gets hung up (the back goes up higher than the front and I have to lift the front while it is coming up). I am guessing the front of the scissors is out of the track and needs to be put back-but I'm not sure and won't be till I get a look at what's happening in the door. …Continue

Can anyone give me a brief and easy way to replace the rear differential pinion seal mine is leaking and spraying gear lube everywhere. Thank you Michael
I removed both 7 nipple vacuum valves and called my buddy who owns a machine shop. Tomorrow we'll re-surface the valve faces and then I'll reinstall them. HOWEVER, the one that comes out easily and comes apart with no rivet is on the Power module side. It installs on one side with a small bolt, and on the other it is held on by a clip, WHICH IS MISSING ON MY CAR. I am going to assume it is the same clip that is used on the Control Module side. Anybody got one? Happy…Continue
So, I've put my 7 vacuum valve from the control head side to the test, and it failed. I looked at the instructions for re-conditioning it and unless I am missing something, the instructions are missing something (about how to take off the clip that provides the tension that holds the two pieces together).
In any case, I can't do this particular repair so I am looking for a new valve (not likely), or a good re-conditioned one, or someone who has done this before and would do mine for…Continue
