Eventually I’ll replace the speedo cable if needed but I believe the dash will need to come out to do that. However, shortly, I will be replacing the transmission on my 64 Fleetwood and I was wondering when we plug the Speedo cable into the new trans, is there a lubricant I can get into there? It makes noise especially when cold. Figure it might help a little. 

Thanks! 

Logan

Also, I’ll upload a few photos of the “Craigslist Rebuild” I did on the trans. No full rebuild, but the case and pan sure looks better! Hoping this used trans from Jason does the trick until I can find a shop that’ll touch a 64 TH400

Logan   ,Remove the dash pad and unscrew the speedo cable from the speedometer pull the cable from the housing, spray some brake cleaner on a rag and run it down the cable to remove the old grease until its clean you may want to spray some brake cleaner down the cable housing until it runs out the other end  then blow the housing dry with a blow gun. Then lube the cable with white lithium grease or vaseline and reinstall it into the housing that should end your noisy cable.

This sounds like a good plan however, I don’t plan to remove my dash at this time. That’s why I was wondering if there was a lube I could get into from the trans side. 

I know what you suggested is the right way to do it, but I’m not taking dash off right now. So got to do what I can

Loud air moving sound within carb with cleaner removed

Posted by Dave Fehrle on March 23, 2024 at 3:23pm 8 Comments

While checking my Carter carb with engine running, I took the air cleaner off and there was a very loud hissing sound of air. I placed a piece of paper over the carb and it didn’t move up or down, is this normal?

Vintage Air AC

Posted by Chase on March 21, 2024 at 5:55am 0 Comments

Hey everyone, has anybody done a Vintage Air AC/Heat setup in their car? I want to bypass the old vacuum setup and go with a Vintage Air Gen 2 model. Before I get started, does anyone have any experience with this? (Which model to go with, do’s and dont’s, etc.) It looks pretty involved. Any and all info/pics would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I would prefer to be as original as possible. Thanks

'63 Eldorado trumpet horn + 2 standard horns restoration

Posted by Les Eastling on November 15, 2023 at 10:34am 1 Comment

My son, unbeknownst to me, had all three of the horns on our 1963 Eldorado completely restored. We had recently added the Eldorado trumpet horn to the two standard horns and the sound was not very good... we had heard good ones so we knew something was not right... but there was not much we could do to get better sound from the 3 horns. 

There is a restoration service called The Horn Works who my son…
