I hope i am not breaking anyones bubble but if you choose to remove the speedometer you can change the mileage on these cars to anything you desire it to be by just adjusting some of its internal parts and changing the numbers
That can lead to a lot of misconduct and cause you to by a car that is not correctly represented by its mileage
Just a heads up to study other aspects of the car to see if the mileage feels right for the wear and tear you may be looking at on a given car
Break peddle wear for example etc ( unless the brake peddle was replaced --LOL )
Pick a number an that can be the current mileage you show on the dash ---Surprised ??
I bet some of you just might be
Many of our cars have been around the clock once and when reading 35,000 miles is really 135,000 miles
In the years these cars were built the life expectancy of a car was about 125,000 miles give or take a few thousand
Not like todays cars that go 250,000 to 300,000 miles due to the advent of CNC machining years later
Thought a few might find this as a possible eye opener

Want your car to be newer than it is like MAGIC !

For the NY Siciliann Crime Families thats just horsing around
Love that Movie as i have been in a lot of the sceens in that movie in my own lifetime
You can add my second favorite movie Goodfellows to the list
My uncle " Larry the Lover " ( they all have nick names ) was the guy in the movie Goodfellows played by Ray Liotta for all practical purposes
It could have been writen about his life and who he was
All my life i have grown up being related to these bad boys and then the Godfather movie came out to introduce the world to them
Many of them have passed away now but the movie has made there life style immortal forever on film
We still can make you an offer you cannot refuse !

Enjoy

Comment by Kevin Campbell on November 5, 2017 at 3:18pm

Hey Jason, the paint deal sounds almost too good to be true.

How much extra if the cans are full though.

Comment by Jason Edge on November 5, 2017 at 3:02pm

Hey, I might not have NOS speedo head units but I can set them up at Zero Miles for those that JUST NEED TO START OVER!   I've also got a few cans of Ford Blue I swear looks just like Cadillac Blue... $10 a can... buy 10 cans and I'll knock $5 off. And no one will ever know .... wink, wink!

Brakes Went Out

Posted by Christopher Codd on August 8, 2018 at 8:25am 18 Comments

My '64 Cadillac DeVille had been sitting for awhile while I was travelling this summer and when I came home it had some issues starting. After replacing the plugs and the ignition coil, it was running better than it had in a long time but the brakes were sticking. I noticed the brake pedal was traveling a little farther than usual when slowing down. Soon after I noticed a hissing noise coming from around the brake pedal. Then I lost the brakes pretty much completely. I couldn't find any…

Comfortron AC trouble shooting

Posted by Norman Silverman on July 23, 2018 at 8:54pm 5 Comments

OK, here we go.....

I got the book to troubleshoot the system. INDISPENSABLE to this effort. 

As I do a cursory exam, I see that the AC RECIRC SOLENOID is Cracked (the WHITE one in the engine compartment coming out of the HVAC body with two vacuum hoses on it). I tried to patch it up (cracked all around the base), but it does not look like it will hold. 

PLEASE TELL ME THAT REPLACING THIS PART IS NOT AS DIFFICULT AS I THINK IT IS, But I think it is a bear to…

A/C Issue / Stumped !

Posted by Dana G Cooper on July 23, 2018 at 6:29pm 37 Comments

My 63 CDV factory A/C was trash so I replaced every part in the system and converted to R134 . I also installed a STV bypass kit which eliminated the STV all together and converted the system to a cycling system.  I vacumed and charged the system with 36oz of 134. The system is cycling as it should and the pressures are right at 250 high side, cycle off at 25lbs and cycle back on at about 35lbs. It is making plenty of water on the low side hoses and evaporator drain. There is very good air…
