"Thanks Russ. I’ve neglected to reinstall the shim when I put the manifold and carb back on, probably explains why the idle is very up and down."

"No I don’t think it’s the tube that hits, because I can take the dipstick out and run the motor no worries. But if I put the dipstick back in, it rattles like a bastard and puts a noticeable bend in the stick."

"Problem was I received the engine back from the builder without the tube installed. I bought a new tube off the shelf and installed it. I think I may have to take the oil pan off and bend the tube. It's the same dipstick that was in the motor…"

Starter Solenoid replacement-how difficult? Where to buy?

Posted by Norman Silverman on August 20, 2019 at 8:24pm 6 Comments

Hello All.

I believe the starter solenoid has gone bad in my 64 DeVille. When I turn the key, often all I get is a click, then if I try a few times again the starter turns perfectly. All battery cables are on tight and the battery is good. So, I believe this problem is the solenoid. Where do I buy the right solenoid and is it necessary to remove the starter in order to swap it out? …
