Where do the flashers go in my 64 Deville Convert.  I'm thinking that's why both turn signals stopped working.

Thank you Jason

Mike, The flasher is on the framing above the lower dash panel cover as seen circled in picture below. From the factory it is held to the framing via a clamp but thru the years the clamp sometimes gets discarded or flasher left to hang loose. You may be able to reach under and over to get to the flasher, however removing the lower cover will give you direct access.

LOVE your advice!  Thank you LOL

The lights would have to be disassembled to get to test the bulbs
Often the bulb socket needs to be cleaned up so the metals makes contact and conducts electricity again
The spring action at the bottom of the bulb can be made to work with some WD-40 and moving it up and down a bit
A lot has to do to the conditions the car was exposed to over its life time which is in most cases --unknown
Honestly electrical trouble shooting is some of the more difficult time consuming car repairs

You may need --a new friend --that is a --GEAR HEAD --to get the Cadillac you love back in working order
I would grab the first --great looking biker you could snag --future Cadillac light repair --DONE !
Worse things have been done to have --the car of your dreams running GREAT
( hope you get my humor ) --LOL ! ! !

Check your fuses in your fuse box

Thank you.   Turn sigs both sides, brake lights are only out on driver side......tried to see how to get at bulb and I think it's a big deal, can't reach from inside the trunk that I can see (I'm Michael's widow and my friend is not the mechanic Mike was).  Appreciate your input to help even if have to take to a mechanic.

The flasher is located under the plate below the steering column
That could be your problem ( hopefully ) or you may be having an issue with your turn signal switch which is located in the steering column under the sterring wheel that must be removed to get to it

Bulbs could always be the problem so do not overlook them
Test then first

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?



Fuel loss in Carburetor

Posted by Ian Osborne on December 29, 2018 at 11:24pm 16 Comments

Lately if I haven't started my '63 in four or five days it seems that the carburetor has gone dry. The starter cranks for an extended period of time and the engine doesn't come close to firing. I have resorted to pouring a little fuel into the carb to save the starter and battery. This gets it started and it runs fine. It also starts fine after sitting a short while - a couple hours or so.

The fuel pump is new and there is always fuel in the glass bowl of the fuel filter. This, along…
