Does anybody know what the deal is with the caps under the cowl? I was cleaning out a mouse nest and found that the passenger side cap was cracked open. What are they there for? Does anybody have a replacement for sale?

Those help to seal the engine bay fumes from going into the vent cowl.

What would be the harm of installing the cowl without these?

Yes.. just pops in.

Yes, that's the cap I'm talking about. I'd like to keep the mice, debris, and water out. Does the cap just pop into place? I'll send you an email tonight about purchasing one as well as some other little parts.

You are talking about the large plastic cap under the cowl to right center in this picture. I am not quite sure what they are for. Perhaps to facilitate construction of car. If it is for other maintenance in the shop manual I have missed it. I do hove a box full of these. I I an pick put a very nice one for $5 and ship for a couple bucks 1st class if you want a nice one.

It's not the easiest spot to photograph, but here is the area I'm talking about.

Radiator And Shrouds

Posted by Dominic Salemi on April 24, 2019 at 3:36pm 1 Comment


Anyone have a decent radiator and shrouds and hardware for a 1964 Cadillac deville. I have an alum. radiator and I'm deciding on to fix it or back to the original one. If I fix it I won't need parts.


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

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.
