In the Nov/Dec 2012 Newsletter, I included an 'Engine Painting Tips' article from my experience over the years and thought I would save  as a separate document to reference from the website.

I have updated the article a bit and saved as a PDF file which you can now access, save and print by clicking on this link: Engine Painting Tips

Hopefully this will help some of you in your restoration of your 390 & 429 engines.

Jason.

Tim, generally after 24 hrs to make sure the paint is dry and started curing. I will have to add that to the write up sometime. Jason

Jason, how long after the final coat do you wait before putting the engine parts in the oven?

Great info.

2 to 3 cans of engine primer, gloss black  and blue engine paint, and 1 can of the hi temp primer & exhaust paint. Of course the more coats you add the more more paint. I generally do 2 coats of each....and bake and cure as indicated in write-up.

Great post about the engine paint colors
Any chance you can give an idea as to how many of each can you did use ?
( That break dancing is exhausting stuff--LOL. )

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

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
