Can anyone help identify this part?  It came with my partially disassembled '64 Eldorado. Now attempting to reassemble car with help of a local restoration shop here in Long Island, New York. 

Thanks.

Regards to all,

My car is parked in a way so I can't go and check. But if memory serves it does look like the part below the radiator. Have checked my MPB and I can't find it in it either.

That is the Radiator Air Deflector (Parts Group 1.272, Part # 147 9472). It attaches via 4 bolts to the bottom of the radiator support and lips above the front lower center bumper end bar.  It helps funnel air through the radiator by sealing from below and serves as a rock & debris shield. It should definitely be installed on any your car if it has been removed.

Here is a picture of mine:

I'll have to check our car, but I don't recall having that.

It was there from the factory.

... but have often seen them removed and not reinstalled.

Hey Jason, do you have one and if so, how much?

I am out right now. Maybe Russ or one of the others reading this has one. If not, I can add you to my Wait List.

Can you please bung me the wait list.

I'll check with Russ as well, but if you haven't got one, I doubt anyone would. 

Kev, I have one for you.  email me at;  russ85747@hotmail.com 

If its not there you should get it. In your climate it might help cooling the engine as per Jasons: "It helps funnel air through the radiator by sealing from below". My guess he can get you a good one.

Jason, Anders
Thank you very much for your help.
Best regards,
Jeff

HVAC Vacuum Valve Clip-need the one for the Power Control side

Posted by Norman Silverman on September 17, 2018 at 8:15pm 4 Comments

Hi.

Update:

I removed both 7 nipple vacuum valves and called my buddy who owns a machine shop. Tomorrow we'll re-surface the valve faces and then I'll reinstall them. HOWEVER, the one that comes out easily and comes apart with no rivet is on the Power module side. It installs on one side with a small bolt, and on the other it is held on by a clip, WHICH IS MISSING ON MY CAR. I am going to assume it is the same clip that is used on the Control Module side. Anybody got one? Happy…

7 vacuum valve-need a good one or someone to recondition mine

Posted by Norman Silverman on September 15, 2018 at 5:44pm 12 Comments

So, I've put my 7 vacuum valve from the control head side to the test, and it failed. I looked at the instructions for re-conditioning it and unless I am missing something, the instructions are missing something (about how to take off the clip that provides the tension that holds the two pieces together). 

In any case, I can't do this particular repair so I am looking for a new valve (not likely), or a good re-conditioned one, or someone who has done this before and would do mine for…
