DOES ANYONE HAVE A SPECIFICATION OR MANUFACTURER NUMBER FOR A CURRENTLY AVAILABLE MUFFLER THAT WILL FIT A 1964 ELDORADO?

IT SEEMS TO BE A UNIVERSAL PART FROM  WHAT I SEE  AVAILABLE ON LINE, BUT THE SELLERS ASK YOU FOR THE LENGTH, INLET AND OUTLET SIZE, OFFSET, ETC. STATING THAT THE APPLICATIONS ARE NOT VEHICLE SPECIFIC. 

ALSO IS THERE A SOURCE FOR THE RUBBER INSERTS FOR THE EXHAUST HANGER/BRACKETS?

THANKS,

JEFF KINZLER

Clovis, I had duals previously, but went back to factory style exhaust, sourced through Classic Exhaust out of Ohio, about 3 1/2 years ago.

Jason, I thought you had dual exhaust on your car? If you do did you get it from Classic exhaust?

I just ordered it from Bob at USA Parts Supply. The prices are out of date but it was 110 plus shipping. $132 all in.

He no longer stocks them but has them made up in Ohio. Probably buys from Waldron ir Classic. As they used to say "all roads lead to Rome."
Thanks.

Thanks for the tip. As far as I know all is original and I am trying to do some damage and cost control to status quo ante following the disastrous untuning of the engine by the rebuild shop resulting in a massive backfire.

USA Parts & Supply has the mufflers listed for $84.50. I would assume they would be the original style/size muffler.  When you ask for spec for a muffler that will FIT A 1964 ELDORADO, I am assuming you are keeping everything factory.  If going aftermarket you can pretty much run almost any muffler out there ... it just has to match the diameter of the tail pipe being used. I've pulled In parts cars with tube mufflers, offset mufflers, single chamber mufflers, multi chamber mufflers, even one with those Thrush Mufflers we use to like to put on hot rod cars... well the poor hot rodders cars. Your muffler shop should be able to recommend & source a good replacement muffler, hangers, etc.

Thanks. I just left a message with Classic as their web site is useless.

I was looking for a specification for an off-the-shelf rather than custom fabrication part.

I just got a quote of $176 from Caddy-parts.com who has them fabricated to order. OPG has them for around $100+but seems to be non oem type i.e. noisier..

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

Hi.

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
