Any of you guys ever change your rear end oil. Am I correct in assuming that the old oil has to be pumped out? I don't see any bolts holding a rear plate like others I've seen.

Thanks guys. I dont know if its ever been changed, but if not, every fifty years seems like the maximum interval for any oil change. lol. Im also having the tranny flushed with a new filter installed. Just made sense to do both at the same time.

I just did mine after changing out the pinion seal. Yes, the shop manual states that the carrier fluid only needs to be refilled when a leak occurs and the unit is serviced, otherwise it is permanent (of course, they didn't allow for usage half-a-century later). I have a '63 but assume the same applies in '64.

A cheap hand pump works fine for the task. I recommend a small diameter hose - better suction, and it gets in low under the gears.

You can use a hand suction tool for this purpose ,to remove and refill the rear end thru the inspection bolt
Some auto stores will lend you tools

Yes, the oil has to be pumped out.  Poor design.

In their defense, Cadillac never built the car to last this long. Quality was on their mind, not longevity.

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.

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…
