1963 Fleetwood door bumper sizes question for CLC forum

The CLC forum had this question:Hello to all, I am trying to replace all the door bumpers in my 63 Fleetwood 4 door. I've looked around and found there are different sizes. I was going to measure the ones that I thought were on the car but when I looked they were all gone. I have no idea what sizes belong where. I looked for diagrams and pictures online with no luck and my shop manual tells me nothing. I'm hoping someone could help me here. Thank you, George…See More

Self-Starter article on the 429 engine series

Posted on May 18, 2013 at 10:31am 3 Comments

I would like to obtain a copy of the Self-Starter's article on the 429 engine series.  I think it was originally published in the July 2003 edition.  Does anyone have a copy to share or any ideas of how to obtain a copy?

Thank you.

looks like many will deal  or have dealt with this issue at some time,when owning our fine cars

the 10-40 motor oil mentioned in the artical should help with a leak issue

Wonder what kind of seal goes on the metal PCV pipe under the intake?  It looks like the larger part is kind of a press fit into the manifold but maybe there was a rubber gasket under the bolt that…Continue

1963 Eldorado convertible boot

Posted by Les Eastling on February 27, 2020 at 10:33am 1 Comment

I need a used convertible boot for a 63 Cadillac convertible - condition or color is not an issue since it will be used as a pattern for making a new one. One from either a 62 series convertible or an Eldorado would work. I know I am searching for hen's teeth here... but you never know unless you ask!
