I have parts car #48 sitting in front of my bay with Dino the Gold 64 Caddy inside, and HE is ready to get out and about so I am pushing myself to get this one stripped to the point I can get the parts car out of the way and up on the car hauler.... but.... when you find those 429's (or 390's) with that blue tipped cork, it is time to pop the 429 cork and savor the goods!  While, it is recommended to reinstall cork with a rebuild or reinstall of the balancer it is usually not done, and is a good indication you have an unmolested original engine! OK... back to the fun!

Always nice to find one that hasn't been abused!  Maybe this one really did belong to a little old lady that only drove it to church on Sunday?

Getting close to pulling the engine and will see how it looks inside. I use to pull almost the entire engine out then remove externals such as intake, balancer, front cover, valley pan, alternator, sending units. etc. but now tend to remove most externals sitting in the engine bay as it makes a nice work stand! About the only thing left on the engine when I lift up and out these days is the heads, exhaust manifolds, starter, and adaptor ring, flexplate, and motor mounts, and they come off within minutes of lifting it up and out.

Holy cow! I never heard of this. I checked my 64 Caddy CdV while in the garage tonight and I just had to go look. Damn, there it was! Tried to get a photo but couldn't. My car is an original survivor, 89K on the clock. Runs pretty well considering, but it leaks *everywhere*.

1964 power steering sector rebuild

Posted by CHRIS CARLSON on March 20, 2023 at 11:32pm 3 Comments

 I'm having my steering sector rebuilt, and considering changing it from 20-1 ratio 4.2 turns lock to lock to 3.5 turns lock to lock @ 16-1 ratio, If i change from a 3 1/4" box to a 3" box i could have a 14-1 Ratio steering response would be faster, shorter distance to turn the wheel to get a response,   has anyone done this? and how do you like it? thank you

Need help with a hood latch

Posted by Curtis Dover on January 2, 2023 at 5:23pm 0 Comments

Hey guys, I need some help.  Could someone send me some pictures on how the first hood release lever on a factory 1964 Cadillac is set up, where it comes though the grille. Not the secondary one. I need to know where the thumb or finger position is located through the grille. Is it above or below the center grille molding piece? Mine seems to be positioned behind the center molding piece and will not adjust above or below the molding. I have a wire tied to it to release it…
