Dustless blaster

Here's something cool I stumbled across on Youtube. Pretty cool. It's like a power washer with sand.

Food Cruise

A group of my car buddies & I go on a monthly food cruise, sometimes breakfast, lunch or dinner. Last Saturday we took a 40 mile cruise down country roads from Austin TX to Salado TX. We went to a shop there called City Garage that specializes in Lincolns & had lunch afterwards at a good burger joint in Salado. We've been lucky this winter with beautiful weather for the most part with just a few cold rainy days in between. Here's a little video I put together from the cruise. It's a…

Pics from Cadillac show yesterday

Our local CLC chapter had their annual show at Covert Cadillac in Austin TX yesterday.

There is an interesting story on the 61 limo. A man wanted to purchase a car for some nuns. They reluctantly agreed but insisted that it be bare bones with no radio or air conditioning. When the 61 series 75 showed up of course even without a radio or a/c it was way too ostentatious. The nuns tried to return it to the dealer but they said they could not sell it because it didn't have a/c. So most…

Hardtails Bar & Grill

I went to the annual Lincoln show in Salado TX on Saturday. Yes, I have friends on the dark side. LOL. I brought my 63 CDV of course. There was also a pristine 67 Eldo, & a 89 Allante in the spectator lot so Cadillac was well represented. On the way home we stopped at Hardtails Bar & Grill in Georgetown TX http://www.hardtailsbarandgrill.com/index.html and there crashing through the wall is a full sized front end from a 64…

Noisy vent windows

Quick question: Do we all get wind noise through the closed vent windows at highway speed? I do. The rubber has been replaced. I have heard from a couple of friends and fellow car guys that that's just the way vent windows are. If there are any of us out there old enough to remember if the vent windows were loud when the cars were new that would be helpful. I have tried adjusting them here & there but they are far from silent at cruising speed.

Great info on gasoline

During that discussion another member posted this link to a gasoline white paper. It has great detail on gasoline, octane, ethanol, etc. More…

Finally a sealed passenger compartment

I finally found and fixed the remaining pesky water leak into the passenger compartment. This is the 1st time since owning this car (28 years) that it does not leak from somewhere. I have resealed the windshield, back glass, trunk seal, door seals, & window seals over the years. This last leak eluded my for the longest time. Water would end up on the front passenger floorboard after washing the car. Thinking it was still the windshield I pulled the dash pad and had a friend pour water…

wiper operation

I recently found and fixed a pesky leak where water was entering the passenger compartment and winding up on the front passenger floorboard. I can post details about that if anyone is interested in a separate blog. My wipers have always as long as I have owned this car (29 years) had a delay from the time I flip on the switch til they start wiping, up to a minute sometimes. I have also seen where they have a delay after I turn them off til they stop wiping. I had the dash out recently and…

64 Recirc/Fresh Air Door Actuator replaced; FROM THE INSIDE.

Posted by Norman Silverman on February 4, 2019 at 11:21pm 8 Comments

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…

Where do the flashers go in my 64 Deville Convert.  I'm thinking that's why both turn signals stopped working.

Source for Motor mounts and Trans mounts 1964 SDV

Posted by Norman Silverman on January 9, 2019 at 4:23pm 4 Comments

Hi.

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?

Thanks

Norm
