Hi Jason, thanks for the welcome. I'll have many questions, but I wanted to go through the forums thoroughly because I have a hunch than most of my questions have already be addressed. The old girl has 178,000 miles on her so I'm starting by carefully attending to oil and lubrication. Then (here goes) vacuum leaks and the remarkably, amazingly complex comfort control. Thanks again! -- Brent
I recently installed installed a Edelbrock 1406 carb on my 63 Park Avenue. Do I need to install a fuel pressure regulator? I believe my mechanical fuel pump puts out 5 to 8 PSI and the Edelbrock recommendation is like 3 to 4 PSI. I followed the instructions on your install but didn’t see a fuel regulator on yours.
Thanks for the welcome! Although I am new to this group, I am not new to Cadillacs. My maternal grandparents owned a 1964 Fleetwood 60S in Nile Green with a light green leather and cloth interior, for which I have had a special fondness, down to the present day. I have assisted a number of Cadillac owners in the Southern California area in technical and mechanical matters, including the owners of several 63s and 64s.
Thank you Jason for all the info on 63/64 Cadillacs. I’m installing an Edelbrock carburetor and eliminating the choke tube on my 63 park avenue. I’ve learned a lot of information from reading posts on your website! I’ll have a ton of questions for you once I build my savings up for the rest of the repairs on my car lol !
Thanks for accepting me. I haven’t been able to work on my car for a couple of years now due to the fact I Have been traveling due to work. Home now and looking forward to working on my car. GREAT SITE !!!
Hi Jason, thanks for the welcome to this fantastic resource. I'm just starting to find my way around, I'll try and post some more pics soon and maybe even try to contribute in some small way, if I can, in the future. I'd love to try and trace some more history about my car in due course. I acquired my car last summer here in the UK and I'm very enthusiastic about it, your website is certainly going to help with looking after her! Best regards, Graham.

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 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?
