Well my friends looking for a little advice. the old Rochester has well; seen better days.it leaks around all the gaskets after i just replaced them all. I have a 600 cfm Holley off an old Mopar thinking about putting it on the 64 SDV. Just wondering if anyone has experimented with the holleys on these cars? it wokrs great on the Mopar 360 cubic inch just not sure about the spacers and gaskets i need. A question for jason is did you use JB weld for the choke tube hole or whats your thoughts on plugging the hole?

Thanks all Tyler

Ian, that's a good way of putting it!

So........For a 63,  the eldelbrock 1406 is perfect if going for a great functioning carburetor, and a 1411 is you wanna try and get a little more punch???(and  a little less mileage....)

Will the stock carburetor insulator spacer not work with the Holly? If not, check the Holly web site to see if they sell a spacer with a PCV connection that will work with their carburetor. You are not the only person that is trying to use a Holly on a car with a PCV valve.

No there is a 3/8 " fitting to connect brake booster. Just the holley limits that they don't have the pcv fitting in the front like the original Bakelite or the edelbrock have. I'm thinking you would be right about steeling the vacuum away from the brakes. Thinking I'll just have to break down and get the edelbrock. Haha just $ 329 that I might not have to spend. Not to sound cheap

That connection would be to the back of the Edelbrock carb ,so it does not apply if using the holly carb ,you plan on using
Good luck with the carb swap

The PVC system is to remove spent oil vapors from the crankcase and pass them thru the carb into the engine
Keeping the crankcase cleaner
It is oily stuff
I think you have a connection ,for the brake booster vacuum hose behind the carb on the intake manifold. ,or some place back there
Why are you not using that ,so your brakes work as they should ?

1963 Eldorado convertible boot

Posted by Les Eastling on February 27, 2020 at 10:33am 1 Comment

I need a used convertible boot for a 63 Cadillac convertible - condition or color is not an issue since it will be used as a pattern for making a new one. One from either a 62 series convertible or an Eldorado would work. I know I am searching for hen's teeth here... but you never know unless you ask!
