Replacing Front Door Window Chrome Channel

List Mates,My '64 De Ville Conv. front door window chrome trim needs to be replaced.  The chrome on both front door window his getting a little bit of pealing off.  I have the chrome replacement channels, and flat rubber window channel lining tape.  I've watched Youtube videos on how to remove the old channels and seat new ones.This seems like a fairly long an complicated project because it appears that I have to remove door panels and remove the windows from the doors and then  to put the…See More

"When you say cold idling is the choke engaged and pushing up the rpm? If so then you would have some vaccum with the throttle is parially opened from the choke. .. at least that is what i remember when I had the stock carb setup with choke."

snaps / molding for convertible top cover

Hey guys I'm in search of the molding that runs around the back lip of the car that the convertible top cover snaps on to when the top is down. The previous owner eliminated 3 snaps and replaced them with screws (really bad decision) and seems as though the holes are to big now. Also seems as though the factory incorporated the snap into the molding somehow as there is no screw head in the middle. The snap measures 2.88 mm or .113 inches. Any info is appreciated!Thx,Ken Stout…See More

Vacuum advance

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 when cold idling but not when hot and idling. Is this normal? The car seems to run fine, but I thought I should have constant vacuum.

1963 series 62 convertible transmission issue

Posted by Matthew VanDeWater on June 22, 2021 at 3:03pm 1 Comment

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…

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 2 Comments

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.

I've had the car dyno tuned and…

Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

Posted by Chris on May 30, 2021 at 8:55am 1 Comment

Hello!

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…
