Hi everyone, ever since getting the car back on the road, the rear brakes grab when they are cold and I’m moving at slow speed. Once I get along the road and stop they are fine. I see some posts where the adjustment is to adjust up until the shoes start to grab the drum and then back off 4 clicks. When checking one side tonight it seems they required many more clicks than 4 to get them to grab. can being unadjusted too much make them grab? When I put it all back together originally I would…See More

Hello everyone. I had a perfectly good shifting Hydra-Matic transmission until I elected to fix the leak at the dip stick tube. I just did a quick seal with gasket maker since my current tube is missing the mount and I was headed to the Lead Sled show in Salina, KS in a few days. I drained about 2 quarts of fluid so I could do a good cleaning around the inlet and under the dirt flange of the tube. Installed gasket maker and reinserted the tube then let it sit for 24 hours. Topped off the fluid…See More
"Try a straight edge over the face of the pan.
Over time, often to fix leaks, folks swing off the bolts like their doing up wheel nuts, which will buckle/distort the clamping face.
The pan can be beaten back into shape ok."
I'm having a shop replace outside seals/gaskets on engine and tranny. Engine was losing 3/4qt. every 250mi. So far only a small drip on rear main. Bought an outside seal kit for tranny. sealed up dipstick, shift shaft, that went fine. Pan not so good. Went out and found a puddle under tranny for the second time after sitting the weekend. Going in for the third time to try and get it right. Are we missing something?? The shop about only deals with classic and performance stuff so he ain't no fly…See More

Good afternoon to all my fellow Cadillac owners! I have a question about the vacuum advance on my car. The car is a 64 without a/c and a Rochester carburetor. I noticed that I have vacuum at the port…Continue
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…

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…
