"I have not dealt with Cadillac Kings much, but i have had good experiences with them on the few transactions we did do.
I have a 64 timing cover for 250.00 plus shipping. The oil pump well is in good shape and the pump shaft hole mic check within…"
"Thanks Jason, for the pix and info.
Today, I ordered the two hoses that Caddy Daddy has on their site. Since they have that red '64 Eldo project car, I'm hoping they'd have the correct hoses.
BTW: The existing hoses on my…"
I'm looking to freshen up a few thing on the 429, and am looking for sources of the timing cover. I.m new to the Cadillac world and have found that the Cadillac King sells a refurbished timing cover, just wondering if someone had any experience with them and or any other source. I searched back on this site and didn't find any info when people asked similar questions. Thank you very much.See More
"The original Power Steering Hose for 1964 was Parts Group 6.670, Part No 599 2602 per 1965 Master Parts Book. It lists 2 numbers for 1963, but says to use this part # when prior # (569 0579) was depleted ... just one of many midyear part #…"
"Just a quick trick on the crimped in light sockets. First, Mike is correct, they lose contact from corrosion over the years. The quick fix, which I have found has lasted over a decade on my 64 CDV, is to turn the bulb base back and forth so you wear…"
"Neither of my cornering lights were working when I purchased my '63 Coupe de Ville. I'm pretty good with electrical so I thought it would be a super easy issue to fix. It wasn't. MANY hours later, I realized that the light bulb…"
"There is 1 type of fitting or hose type for the 63 64 high pressure hose. The low pressure is a straight piece of tubing.
If you do not like Caddy daddy or any other manufacturer, just take the old hose to a shop and get one made up. "
My '64 Eldo's high-pressure P/S hose sprung a leak, so I want to change it (and the low-pressure hose.) My car is concours-level restored, so keeping as close to the stock fitment and appearance is important. Caddy Daddy's site shows hoses that look correct, to my eye, but are several inches longer than the ones on my car. My other question is about the fittings. Were there two different styles/sizes of fittings used in '64? On the various sites I've searched, several list TWO different part…See More
"Larry, I agree that the problem might be the turn signal switch. Those get dirty, brittle, and problematic. Tilt wheels tend to make them wear even more.
But also, it might be related to a headlight switch problem, even though you said that…"

A few questions on the resistor wire, what color is it in the pic? The yellow/blue or black? And connecting to the ACC on the fuse box seems easiest way to go with the new switched wire, but where…Continue
Who rebuilds original AC accumulator dryers for 1964 Cadillac? I have been on Classic auto air in Tampa FL wait list for over a year , There is one on Old air products web site that looks very similar to the original # 21-4214A but states it fits 1962 Gm cars, The one recommended for a 1964 Cadillac is half the length 21-4215A What is everyone using ? I would prefer to be as original as possible. Thanks
My son, unbeknownst to me, had all three of the horns on our 1963 Eldorado completely restored. We had recently added the Eldorado trumpet horn to the two standard horns and the sound was not very good... we had heard good ones so we knew something was not right... but there was not much we could do to get better sound from the 3 horns.
There is a restoration service called The Horn Works who my son…
