Here is a list of links to my 2012 Engine Rebuild Project and various Other Restoration Projects and thought it might be helpful to pull them all together and post on our Restoration Forum.  See links below:

I often get asked about my history with the 64 Cadillac and the March 2014 Newsletter article I did featuring the 50th birthday of my 64 Coupe de Ville put's it all together rather nicely. I keep a PDF version on my iPhone and thought I would share here.   To check it out click on Jason's Story from March 2014 Newsletter.pdf

Beautiful job.

Thanks, It's crazy that it has been 8 years! Needs a bit of freshening up but has held up well.

Hello I've been restoring a 63 for way to many years. Down to almost done, but have issue with trans linkage, when column in park shift rod 2 inches short. everything original. been trying to find picture of manual rod hooked up from under car to see position of linkage. was wondering if anybody has access for pictures. I wanted to see if my manual linkage is bent  wrong out of the trans if somebody dropped the trans or something. Doesn't make sense why it doesn't work. Thanks for any input…

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.

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…

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…
