"Great to read that you got to the source of that annoying "tick" and that Dino is back on the road again. And that engine compartment looks soooo good! I never knew these cars had so much gold cadmium under the hood."
"Tony, You have what I am saying backwards. The lifter was significantly shorter than the others --> 7/100ths of an inch. It is my belief that when the springs got a bit worn and couldn't compensate for the shorter lifter, resulting in…"
"Just to add the head rebuild could be an article in itself. I dropped a valve just around the corner from the house, had the car towed to a touted "old car school professional" to have heads pulled and rebuilt. It sat there 2 weeks and I…"
"You indicated the bad valve lifter was mushroomed on the cam lob side and difficult to remove from its bore for that reason ( ice solution )
The mushrooming that happened should be responsible for the reduction in height of that lifter I would…"
"I just read the story in the newsletter. So those lifters were installed by T-Hoff in the late 90's? If so has it been ticking for a long time? Really strange how that shorter lifter got in the mix. I would tend to believe that it is a…"

Hey all, has anyone had their windshield removed and resealed successfully. I'm pretty skittish about having someone mess with my perfectly good glass knowing that these cars are a little different than the new junk. It leaks in 3-4 places when going down the hiway. Also worried about them screwing up the trim around the windshield. Maybe I'm just being over protective since its hard to find competent techs on this old stuff.Thanks Tom BSee More

Hello I've been restoring a 63 for way to many years. Down to almost done, but have issue with trans linkage, when column in park shift rod 2 inches short. everything original. been trying to find picture of manual rod hooked up from under car to see position of linkage. was wondering if anybody has access for pictures. I wanted to see if my manual linkage is bent wrong out of the trans if somebody dropped the trans or something. Doesn't make sense why it doesn't work. Thanks for any input…
I was successful in getting a vehicle from the New York contact I talked about at the last club meeting. I am still trying to figure out how to post a picture of the vehicle that is tied with this comment so if you see a random picture of a black convertible in a yard, that's me haha. …
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.
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…
