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

The  non A/C  carb bowl has a broken mount on the base 3655S, I had an A/C carburetor 3656S same year  and everything look the same  so I’m transferring all the parts  jets,metering rods floats, nozzles .....everything to the carb that had A/C  . I’m just putting together a good spare Incase I have an issue with the one on the car

The sizes of the jets and metering rods is stamped on them 

If the metering rods are worn  ( usually on the top ) you can get new at the local auto parts store 

Once you know —ALL the engine spec  and vacuum issues have been addressed and correct you will want to reject the carb for the ethanol fuel we now use ( very last adjustment to tweak the tune ) 

The plugs should look the color of a brown paper bag when they are right and will burn whiter than they SB with the ethanol fuel

Whiter is leaner and produces additional heat in the cylinders 

if you call Edelbrock  techs and tell them the number of the jets  and metering rods you have they will advise you which primary jets and metering rod combo to go to get the plugs that color 

Took me two times to get mine right with there help 

They bought the rights to produce the Carter carb and made a few changes to it on there new carbs they sell  

The Carter is an outstanding carb so rebuilding them and staying stock is a very good idea to me especially if you have a 63 with the TV rod that shifts the trans attached to accelerator arm of the carb 

The bracket for the TV rod does not come on any new Edelbrock carbs sold and you would have to be making your own for the trans to shift right which I would not be comfortable doing 

The trans performing correctly  on the any Cadillac in our years with the Hydromatic  trans is way to far important to be making you own carb bracket  to be doing that in my own opinion

So what is tour info on carb models ?

Enjoy

Where did you get tour info on the carb models?  I would love to have that info on hand, as I never heard it before. One never stops learning, I love it. 

The Carter carb bowl should be the same, just check the jets.

When rebuilding the Carter  carb be sure the accelerator pump moves freely and is not binding in its cavity

Thanks for the info Tony .

I think the only difference WB the vacuum idle up valve that the AC carb would have on its outside —on the passengers side of the carb as an attachment 

Brings the idle up 600 RPMs when AC is used at an idle 

Otherwise the carbs SB the same —so yes

1963 series 62 convertible transmission issue

Posted by Matthew VanDeWater on June 22, 2021 at 3:03pm 1 Comment

Hello I've been restoring a 63 for way to many years. Down to almost done, but have issue with trans linkage, when column in park shift rod 2 inches short. everything original. been trying to find picture of manual rod hooked up from under car to see position of linkage. was wondering if anybody has access for pictures. I wanted to see if my manual linkage is bent  wrong out of the trans if somebody dropped the trans or something. Doesn't make sense why it doesn't work. Thanks for any input…

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 2 Comments

Hi Everyone, been quite a while since i have been on here.

I have had an issue with the idle on my 64 Coupe Deville ever since i have had it.

With the Idle set high enough that it is smooth, but still a nice idle, the RPM seems only slightly too high for the stall of the Torque Converter. And therefore it tends to sit there and grab and lunge a bit. So until now, i have been putting the car in Neutral at the lights to stop this happening.

I've had the car dyno tuned and…

Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

Posted by Chris on May 30, 2021 at 8:55am 1 Comment

Hello!

Newbie to the group here - we have already found tons of invaluable information on the board, so thanks! We are restoring a 1963 Series 62 Convertible. We are wondering if anyone knows of a source to buy the propellor yoke flange (that bolts to the pinion flange) for the driveshaft? One of our ears partially broke off. Not sure if we can buy just the yoke flange as an aftermarket part, or if it has to be rebuilt by a welder/fab guy? Maybe a salvage yard for a source? Again, any…
