Hello, I have a 63 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible.The car was recently rear-ended and I now have a dent in the rear bumper.Separately, the front bumper has some rust holes.I've attached pictures of both.Can you advise what options I have for getting the dent out and fixing the holes, and potential pricing guesses?  I looked on the supplies page and sent an email to Bumperboyz, as I'm in Los Angeles, so we'll see what they say.  It may be cheaper to replace the front bumper ends than try to fix…See More

Best Distributor Cap Rotors and wires for use with Pertronix III

Posted on July 5, 2013 at 6:13pm 12 Comments

Hello everyone. My 63 Series-62 convertible left me stranded this weekend.  I traced the issue down (I believe) to weak and inconsistent spark. I made the terrible mistake of letting someone else put a new Distributor Cap, rotor, and plug wires in about 2 months ago because I was super busy and didn't have time. When I actually got to taking stuff apart and trying to diagnose it, I realize they put a cheap piece of crap Cap, rotor, and plug set in there. I messed around all day on the 4th…

Hello chapter!

What are your favorite Anti-theft devices for these vehicles and why? Any advice much appreciated.

Thanks!

Bad Guage?

Posted by Karl Schwarz on August 26, 2020 at 3:08pm 5 Comments

So I am troubleshooting my fuel gauge issue. I bought a new sender and tested it. It  it goes from 1-ohm (empty) to 35-ohm (full). When I test it (outside the tank), when the float is in the up (full) position it only moves the gauge to about 1/2 full. When at the bottom (empty) position the gauge shows empty. This is the same issue I have when I fill and then use the gas in the tank - the gauge never reads ore than half full. Based on what I've read on this thread it would seem like the…
