The motor in my 64 DeVille was rebuilt prior to me owning the car. Some jack wagon cut the end off of the green temperature sending wire, and never installed the temp sending unit back in the head...they just plugged it. I am hoping some one might have a pic of the correct wire routing and the connection end on the the temp sending wire.

Thank you Jason Edge for your expertise. With the arrival of the new power steering pump i am looking foward to finnaly having a clean and dry engine bay! I am passionate about keping things orriginal. I believe a restoration of theae old cars is like saving their life. I hate to see people changing motors, suspension, interiors, etc. How can you alter a car that set the standard of the world.

Brian, Hard to say 3K miles from the car. You will need to take a light and do a close inspection of your hoses, cooler, clamps, etc. If you have a good cap and stick you should use the one you have as mine will be $20 for the cap and stick as they are very high demand.  Usually your bracket is good just might need to be cleaned and painted if restoring to like new. On the hoses I have a good selection of many used hoses..some were newer replacements on the donor parts cars, or in the instance of the 41K mile Fleetwood, just wasn't used much. Are the hoses brittle, cracked, looked aged and weathered? Do your clamps have a lot of corrosion, are they worm gear and want to go back with original tower clamps?  I will have a VG used,  core pump and pulley for $45 if you want the complete setup with cooler, hoses, bracket, new clamps, cap and dip stick I would have for $100 + s/h.

Jason,I do have an A/C car  and I am wondering if all parts need to be replaced, or if I may be able to replace the specific parts that are....suspect. what is your advice?

Here is a picture of the cooler that came out in 1964 and used with AC equipped cars:

Brian, The Power steering pumps in 1964 started using the small radiator cooler mounted to the LH inner fender for AC Equipped cars, so I would need to know if you have AC and if you need the cooler and 2nd low pressure hose? The complete setup includes power steering pump and pulley, cap with dip stick (hard to find with stick attached but I have one right now),pulley to engine bracket, hi pressure pump to steering gear hose, pump to cooler low pressure hose, cooler, cooler to steering gear hose. You also originally had 4 tower clamps on the two low pressure hoses. You will often see them replaced with the aftermarket worm gear clamps. I have everything, including some new tower clamps if looking to restore to new, so shoot me an email to and list out everything related to the power steering pump and hoses you need and will get you a total. I will wait to ship the wire and sending unit as I can pack them with the power steering parts and apply the $6 toward those parts if you decide to get them.

2. My power steering pump and hoses need to be replaced. Lol

Thank you sooo much.

Tony, you are a nut.. .. but we are all into nuts and bolts here! LOL Actually, if you take as many pictures as I do you end up with good examples of most but not all aspects of these cars.

Dash removal

Posted by Jake Mickley on October 9, 2019 at 12:06am 9 Comments

Hello everyone,

On a 63 CDV, if a guy wanted to remove the entire dash to get all the metal painted, and do some other things behind there, how would he go about doing that?  I checked here and the shop manual, but can't find a complete guide.

As always, and help or direction is appreciated.  Thanks!


Introducing myself

Thanks for letting me join the club.  Picked up this ‘64 Coupe Deville a few months ago out of Beverly MA, the car has few stickers on it from various Cadillac clubs, didn’t know if anyone might recognize it from it’s “Glory days.” Everything seems pretty healthy except for the body and some very Mickey Mouse repairs, was wondering if anyone had any leads on…
