!964 429 Timing Cover

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 #…"

"  I believe the one McVeys has is correct,  maybe Jason can chime in.     https://mcveys.com/collections/power-steering-hoses/products/1964-power-steering-pressure-hose. Make sure to use a tubing wrench.   "

"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. "

Power steering hose questions

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

C. Van Tune replied to Larry Rees's discussion cornering lights
"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…"

"Power comes from the turn signal switch. Check the connector at the steering column for power."

cornering lights

Neither of my cornering lights are working. I started by focusing on drivers side. I removed the entire assembly and cleaned it up, replaced the wire to the socket, cleaned and lubricated the socket and spring. Made sure light now worked by attaching directly to battery terminals. Reinstalled assembly and plugged it back in and no work. Attached a separate ground directly to the battery terminal and still no work. I checked orange power wire coming in and no power. I have the ignition turned…See More

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

accumulator dryer

Posted by CHRIS CARLSON on December 6, 2023 at 10:54am 0 Comments

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

'63 Eldorado trumpet horn + 2 standard horns restoration

Posted by Les Eastling on November 15, 2023 at 10:34am 1 Comment

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…

Spark Plug Heat Range

Posted by Patrick Westphal on July 7, 2023 at 10:00am 1 Comment

I found a diagram that illustrates the main factor in determining a spark plug heat range that I was trying to describe to you during the chapter get together.

Here it is:

 

The main factor is the length of the ceramic insulator from the middle of the spark plug to the tip (where the spark happens)  

The insulator…
