1964 Conv. non-tilt. Got in my car today and went to put my shifter in "Reverse, or Drive " and the shifter moved but did not go into gear. I looked in the engine compartment and my shifter rod from the steering column WAS NOT moving to change position. Can anyone advise what to do next?

Thank you

Dominic

On the non tilt columns, looking at your shop manual illustration, shift lever connects to shifter tube that connects to the shifter lever. It is a direct connection and all rotate together and I have outlined in yellow in illustration.

The carrier is pressed onto the shifter tube, onto a keyed area that keeps the carrier locked in place. It sounds like you carrier was not pressed onto the shifter tube all the way or has worked it self up and off the tube over the years. See the keyed area pointed to by pen in 2nd picture.

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?

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…
