Kinda crazy that I will be in Texas 1 week from now watching the Cadillacs & LaSalles roll in as part of the 2018 CLC Grand National. I missed out last year and have definitely had GN withdrawal over the past year, and chomping at the bit to get my GN Groove On again!  There is nothing like hanging out with hundreds of other fellow Cadillac enthusiasts with a show field filled with classic cars.  These people become like family and have to say being a part of the CLC Family and participating in these Grand Nationals, and meeting our fellow 1963/64 Cadillac Chapter members in person, has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.  

With that said, I am starting to get in the ramp down mode on the many house projects, while ramping up on my preparation for the Grand National.  The hardest thing for me, probably like most of you, is packing.  What clothes to take? ... it is supposed to be 103 the day we arrive the last time I checked; what electronics do I take? ... make sure I have chargers, adaptors, plugs, cords cables; can I take any Chapter stuff for our meet-up? ... I like to take at least a few unique items; what reading material to I bring? ... I always go way over board and bring books and magazine I barely have time to glance at the cover.

For our Chapter Meet-up I would love to bring a car load of stuff and make it really fun, but we are flying and will have to improvise! As far as reading material this will be the first time I have judged under the new judging procedures and, yes, I have had my head in the 2018 Judging Manual just about everyday this week.  

So, I think I will just relax and just go have some great fun in Texas!!!!!
Jason.

Brakes Went Out

Posted by Christopher Codd on August 8, 2018 at 8:25am 18 Comments

My '64 Cadillac DeVille had been sitting for awhile while I was travelling this summer and when I came home it had some issues starting. After replacing the plugs and the ignition coil, it was running better than it had in a long time but the brakes were sticking. I noticed the brake pedal was traveling a little farther than usual when slowing down. Soon after I noticed a hissing noise coming from around the brake pedal. Then I lost the brakes pretty much completely. I couldn't find any…

Comfortron AC trouble shooting

Posted by Norman Silverman on July 23, 2018 at 8:54pm 5 Comments

OK, here we go.....

I got the book to troubleshoot the system. INDISPENSABLE to this effort. 

As I do a cursory exam, I see that the AC RECIRC SOLENOID is Cracked (the WHITE one in the engine compartment coming out of the HVAC body with two vacuum hoses on it). I tried to patch it up (cracked all around the base), but it does not look like it will hold. 

PLEASE TELL ME THAT REPLACING THIS PART IS NOT AS DIFFICULT AS I THINK IT IS, But I think it is a bear to…

A/C Issue / Stumped !

Posted by Dana G Cooper on July 23, 2018 at 6:29pm 37 Comments

My 63 CDV factory A/C was trash so I replaced every part in the system and converted to R134 . I also installed a STV bypass kit which eliminated the STV all together and converted the system to a cycling system.  I vacumed and charged the system with 36oz of 134. The system is cycling as it should and the pressures are right at 250 high side, cycle off at 25lbs and cycle back on at about 35lbs. It is making plenty of water on the low side hoses and evaporator drain. There is very good air…
