For anyone looking for the original style spring ring cables the correct length, I do have an extra set of these cables on hand and would remove the lower ground strap that attaches to bottom of negative cable and bolts to radiator support from an original cable and attached to the "69 Camaro spring ring cable as I did) making a correct fitting set for $125 + s/h.

Many use those incorrect bolt terminal battery cables and have to say a correct looking spring ring terminal able really makes a difference if you want you Caddy to look original and stand out. I was in a large arena with probably 75+ "Classics" and as best I could tell, I was the only one with the correct battery cables.    They are also far easier to remove and installed. Just take a channel lock and open to 2nd grove and clamp end together and it goes on and off as quickly as you can squeeze the pliers.  If interested in my one extra set of cables shoot me an email to jasonedge@nc.rr.com

 I will post the transfer of the battery cable negative ground strap sometime in the future as an addendum to the article.  

Covering all ground straps would be a good separate topic as there are at least a half dozen or more in the engine compartment alone.  This "tech tip" focuses on the battery and battery cable.

A picture of the starter ground strap and the other ground  straps  locations would be great , as some may have been removed over the years , and we often have the ground strap location question come up from time to time on this site

I want to go back and add a couple pictures installing the small ground strap at bottom of Negative cable. For anyone looking for this setup for their 63/64, I ordered a 2nd set of the correct length 69 Camaro cables and will add that ground strap to bottom and put up for sale. Shoot me an email at jasonedge@nc.rr.com if interested.

Radiator And Shrouds

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

Hello

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.

Thanks

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…
