Can't sleep thinking about my car, am I alone in this ?

I have had my 64 13 years and I think I might be on the right track to fixing my AC. I think I might have the vaccum lines going to the check valve before the neutral safety switch at the bottom of the steering column in the wrong configuration and Im not sure where the black line going from the power servo rotary valve number 6 vacuum line is going.

See all is well just as i thought With the boys
I forgot your last inovation
The rear control arms with urethane bushings to add on to the above list of improvement parts ( you are something )

Does Joe D have his vacuum check valve installed correctly in the picture above ?

Kevin, exactly my thinking as well. Russ said he could get the part. For me it really wasn't easy as auto parts sellers didn't have any in good size or price. So as Russ was sending some other stuff I asked him to throw a vacuum check valve into the package as well. He did and I was very happy with that. Fully aware that it was an aftermarket product.

Selling used auto parts (sometimes new) is a long term business and both parties has to be satisfied with the outcome. Both Jason and Russ have built their names on keeping a promise and deliver on it. For a reasonable and fair price. There are others on this site that also are building their reputation doing the same thing.

So Russ, I never thought of you as a shyster. I was very satisfied with the parts and the rapid help. Same praise goes to Jason.

Hey Russ, when I saw the post, I never thought it was anything hat was dodgy. Being in Australia, i'd be happy as if someone could do some shopping for me  and save some grief.

Don't give Tony a thumbs up though, he's not that good, maybe just a gold star on his forehead.

If there were emocons, I'd give you a thumbs up Tony.

I do not think anyone thinks you are a shyster
I know your dealings to be very reasonable for years
Most of us are thrilled that you designed the fix for the broken AC vacuum check valve that many have had a problem with or will in the future
Your creativity regarding our year cars is to be admired in my opinion
Your headlight harness -headlight switch repair -Nss repair - your LED taillights -illuminated headlight switch --the vacuum check valve repair - your electrical trouble shooting skill are right up there - restoration parts for our year Cadillacs ETC
Sure i forgot a few but point made

It is a pleasure to have you here for your hands on experience and the help and opinions you offer daily

Glad to call you one of the Classic Cadillac Angels my friend

"The vacuum valve I bought from Russ when I needed some other stuff from him as well. I think he just went in to any auto parts store and bought over disk. It works just the same as the original valve but instead of having it all inside the 8.850 Heater Vacuum Check Valve its just attached above. very simple and very good."

Now now, don't try to make me out as a shyster.  I never sell aftermarket parts advertised as originals.  I remember letting folks in here know that I was getting a generic vacuum check valve from my local parts store.

Help on Removal of rear seatback on 64 convertible

Posted by Nile Bolen on January 8, 2021 at 11:44am 7 Comments

I'm trying to remove the rear seatback on my 1964 deville conv.  The only help on this site that I can find is the following:

The seatback, its bright stainless trim, and the speaker grille are removed as an assembly.  The seat back hangs on two hooks near the top, and is retained to the body by two bolts and washers near the floor, one on the right side, one on the left.Once these fasteners are removed, lift the seat back upward and free it from the hooks

I've removed…
