Edelbrock 1406 Carburetor + Parts For Conversion For Sale

Gentlemen,

After 31 years I have sold my '63 convertible. Long story short is I got a price I believe was very respectable considering the market right now. That and I am moving on to finish my other project which I have owned even longer, 40 years, my Sunbeam Tiger. Bottom line is I don't have room to garage both of them and all of my other stuff and I wasn't making any progress on the Tiger. It is a rare car and a ton of fun so all of my efforts are going towards it now.

I have some extra Caddy parts left over and will attempt to sell them here. First up is an Edelbrock 1406 conversion I never got around to. I have the 1406 which I bought used off of Craigslist. It was described as having low run time and that looks to be the case. Beyond that, I know nothing so it is sold as-is. I have fabricated the TV rod plate discovered by Mike Daly in this thread - https://6364cadillac.ning.com/forum/topics/edelbrock-1406-carb?xg_r...

I also have the adaptor I purchased from Russ Austin that allows the original air cleaner housing to be used and a Trans-Dapt TRD-2446 recommended for this conversion that are included in the sale. This is the majority of what is needed for this swap.

Excellent summary here: https://6364cadillac.ning.com/forum/topics/edelbrock-1406-1411-inst...

$275 plus actual shipping cost. I'm just trying to get my money back.

Congratulations on the sale Ian.

Thanks mate!  

The sale is pretty unique. I sold it to this club for car enthusiasts who have seven classic cars that members can drive whenever they want. The Caddy replaced a Lincoln Continental convertible that they just sold. The owner told me I can come drive it if I want to so if you ever get to L.A., I absolutely will take you cruising in it.

Geez, I really wish we'd come over 2 years ago when we had planned to.

Some idiot, it might have been me, suggested we move house, put the trip on hold for 2 years..... you get the picture. :-(

At this rate with this covid thing, it will be a while, but I will take you up on the offer.

So, do we call Max, Mr. Smart or just plain ol 86 now?

Yeah, don't bother coming now unless you want to deal with Covid, fires and constant zombie attacks all at the same time. The offer stands for better times, for sure.

To answer your question:

ian

A real good Answer —for sure !

Sure there is a good story behind that plate 

Enjoy

Ian

You left earthquakes off you list but the idea is clear

Hopefully things will get better the question is just when ??

Enjoy

How could I forget earthquakes? We just had one the other night. Yes, figure on those too.

I am looking for that linkage piece. Where did you get that?

I adapted the linkage plate of an old Rochester 4GC as described by Mike Daly in the attached link to the discussion here a while back. I turned a bushing and silver-soldered it in the correct location. If you don't have an old Rochester part to convert, the part can also be fabricated from scratch.

I still have all of my parts but prefer to sell them together. If you also want the air cleaner adaptor, I would sell those two parts together for a very reasonable price.

Price reduced to $225 for the lot.

I sold the carb locally but still have the linkage adaptor, spacer and air cleaner adaptor.

How much for the rest of the parts?

Thanks

I am interested in buying? What is the cost?

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…
