Hope you're doing well today - I just left a message on your VM regarding some expansion plugs for a '63; specifically: rear cam plug, two threaded plugs for the rear oil galley, two front cup-style plugs, and the four plugs required to seal the rocker shaft ends. I understand you're busy - hope to hear from you soon.
Will have to cancel being a 6364 member. Because this car belongs to my 11year old son, who is on a budget so he can't sign up to C.L.C and pay fees. We have excellent knowledge on these cars. Three weeks ago we just pulled the car from storage after sitting for over 35years. We we're even going to send you pictures of our correct tires still on vehicle.
Too bad this site wasn't free.
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 !

I wound up with an extra front cover for my '64 and offering it for sale.
Purchased from a knowledgable part supplier with thorough hands-on knowledge of 63-64 Cadillac engines, who checked the part before sending it to me. The oil pump driven gearSee S bore and the pressure relief piston bore are both .002 over and within the .005…
