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.

I have not dealt with Cadillac Kings much, but i have had good experiences with them on the few transactions we did do.

I have a 64 timing cover for 250.00 plus shipping. The oil pump well is in good shape and the pump shaft hole mic check within limits. 

email me at russ@thecadishack.com 

Question: what are those specs. on the oil pump gear wells on the front cover ?

Not sure off hand, but the shop manual has the specs in the back of the engine section. 

Hi Mike,

     I had to replace the aluminum timing cover for my 64 429.  I did it last year and it was tough to find a cover with the exact number on the lower part of the cover.  Finally managed to locate one but there are very few out there to match the engine.  Some say Cadillac King is a risky site, but I do believe they might have one.  Just make sure the number on the cover matches theirs.  Cadillac King had one listed for a 1963, but it was the same number; that's what counts.  I believe it was expensive.  Dennis DiBari Cottekill, NY

Ok thanks everybody for the information.  I just need to pull it apart and develop my plan from there.

Loud air moving sound within carb with cleaner removed

Posted by Dave Fehrle on March 23, 2024 at 3:23pm 8 Comments

While checking my Carter carb with engine running, I took the air cleaner off and there was a very loud hissing sound of air. I placed a piece of paper over the carb and it didn’t move up or down, is this normal?

Vintage Air AC

Posted by Chase on March 21, 2024 at 5:55am 0 Comments

Hey everyone, has anybody done a Vintage Air AC/Heat setup in their car? I want to bypass the old vacuum setup and go with a Vintage Air Gen 2 model. Before I get started, does anyone have any experience with this? (Which model to go with, do’s and dont’s, etc.) It looks pretty involved. Any and all info/pics would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

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…
