...well almost! The last stage of parting a car out is to pull it up onto the car hauler which you see in the background with another 1963 Park Avenue sitting on top of it.   Once I get it up on the car hauler then the wheels come off, front end comes off, then the that big rear end  is pulled leaving the car flat on the car hauler.  Then it is off to the Metal Yard.

This picture was taken about around 7:30am and was right after I had remove the the headliner metal bows, and the last of the buttons from what is left of the seats (Yes, I keep those buttons and are actually a pretty good seller!).   But, looking at the picture below I had to first get the other parts car off the car hauler (which is actually parts car #57), to make room for this the one in the foreground (which is parts car #58). I think this is the first time I have dismantled two out of order, but my buddy Les Eastling took the rebuilt engine from the car on car hauler (which came from Indiana), and it made more sense to go with #57 (from Tallahassee, Florida). 

Anyway, I had a busy day moving cars around but got'er done.  The 2nd picture is the view from one of the Nest Camps with the #58 up and loaded and ready for the final take down!  (Yes, that is my 2002 Escalade Ext Brutus doing towing duty ... it is nice to have an extra EXT around so I can just leave it hooked up until ready to take the 3 mile drive down to the metal yard). 

Tomorrow I will probably take the wheels and front end off the car, then get the rear end out this weekend. I am also going back and forth with my house addition project... having put up about 6 sheets of wall sheathing plywood in the last couple of days. We have had some gorgeous weather here in NC and I have been taking advantage of it! 

That's my ramble for today... and I'm sticking with it!

I suffered another vapor lock today,  and im bout ready to go to electric.  It can get really hot and dry out here in MT and it was only 88 yesterday when I stalled.   car ran flawless all day..  got into my town, did some slow and idle driving, and temp on gauge got to about 195.   To get to my house, I have to climb a pretty steep hill, and as has happened on other occasions, has stalled about half way up.   I checked the bowl, it was at the bottom.  The fuel pump was HOT!!!,,,I had it…

While working on my trunk lock on 64 Cadillac, I mistakenly closed the locking mechanism while the trunk was open.  Is there an easy way to manually release the lock back to the open position?

Thanks.

Fuel Pump Failure

Posted by Jon Shields on August 6, 2022 at 6:48am 4 Comments

Hello,

I'm located in Melbourne, Australia and my 64 sedan de ville is stuck in the garage due to failed mechanical fuel pump. The first after market mechanical fuel pump lasted a few years before it failed & left me stranded 5 hours from home. A hire car and tow got us home. On inspection, I noticed a valve not seated within the housing. I was optimistic, pressed it into place and assumed the pump was good to go. But alas, no. From what I can now determine, the diaphragm pushrod…
