Looking to reupholster the seats on my 64 Coupe Deville, and it seems like most suppliers skip over the ‘64 when it comes to seat upholstery.  A lot of seats I see for a ‘64 have an armrest built in…Continue

Power window switch question

I was wondering how the OEM power window switch emergency/lock/normal switch is SUPPOSED to function.  Mine has obviously been monkeyed around with, as the relay is missing and it only works in “emergency” mode, which I have read about here and in the user manual.  The question I have, is I can get the switch to engage or “click into” both emergency and lock mode, but the switch won’t click into normal mode, as if you have to hold the switch in place with your hand to keep it in normal mode.  I…See More

Turn signal switch problems

Hello all, have a problem with my ‘64 Series 62 where the horn comes on when the headlights are on at the same time as the left turn signal.  Thanks to Russ’s advice, I believe I have found the problem in the worn through wire on the switch.i also have a problem where I must hold the right turn signal up/ in position to keep it blinking.  I assume this means I need a new switch, but this one is unlike any GM turn signal switch I’ve ever seen.  Attached are pictures of the pigtails and the…See More

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…

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 2 Comments

Hi Everyone, been quite a while since i have been on here.

I have had an issue with the idle on my 64 Coupe Deville ever since i have had it.

With the Idle set high enough that it is smooth, but still a nice idle, the RPM seems only slightly too high for the stall of the Torque Converter. And therefore it tends to sit there and grab and lunge a bit. So until now, i have been putting the car in Neutral at the lights to stop this happening.

I've had the car dyno tuned and…

Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

Posted by Chris on May 30, 2021 at 8:55am 1 Comment

Hello!

Newbie to the group here - we have already found tons of invaluable information on the board, so thanks! We are restoring a 1963 Series 62 Convertible. We are wondering if anyone knows of a source to buy the propellor yoke flange (that bolts to the pinion flange) for the driveshaft? One of our ears partially broke off. Not sure if we can buy just the yoke flange as an aftermarket part, or if it has to be rebuilt by a welder/fab guy? Maybe a salvage yard for a source? Again, any…
