"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…"

Russ Austin replied to C. Van Tune's discussion Power Steering Hose Questions
"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

"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

63 Exhaust Hanger Mystery

I'm in the process of installing a stainless steel single exhaust from Classic Exhaust on my '63 Coupe de Ville. I'm running into a mystery regarding my middle exhaust bracket. I have the bracket that goes on the body but I'm missing the piece or pieces that attach the pipe to that body bracket. I've attached a picture of the bracket I have (the pic is taken looking up over the rear axle where the "over the axle" pipe will run). I was hoping someone on this forum would be so kind as to post…See More

"Dave, Have you been able to get your ignition system operating properly?  I think that you are wired into the wrong circuit for 12 volt power.  I would be glad to get on a call with you to discuss it if you would like 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

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…
