I believe the clips in photo #3 hold the transmission fluid cooler lines that go to the bottom of the radiator.

Part 1 is a bracket for one of the cooler line clips in photo 3, the bracket is attached to one of the front oil pan studs. The right bracket in photo 2 could be the washer fitted between the starter bracket and the oil pan. I dont think the left bracket in photo 2 is a oem part.


Pics have been mostly answered but I will chime in with more detail.
Picture 1: is the bracket mounted to stud at right front corner of oil pan for Trans Cooler lines as seen in Pic 3.

Picture 2 on left: is the strap that attached to RH trunk cardboard wall to hold the jack base in place (see pic below). 

Picture 2 on right: is the 1964 Turbo Hydramatic Starter spacer that goes between the starter support bracket and the oil pan.

Picture 3 are the trans color line clamps... one mounts to that bracket in picture 1 on the U nut clip end and the other mounts to a U nut clip attached to the front trans inspection pan that goes in front of the adaptor ring.

Just to add, there is another similar looking clamp use on the rear facing front frame section for the gas line and the brake line but you can always tell it from the trans line clamps since it has a large back section for gas line and smaller front section for the brake line.  The trans lines have the same size "humps" since the trans lines are the same diameter.


Thanks Jason! Excellent info and photos!

This is a fun ——education for me of some of the supporting  unique hardware on our year Cadillacs and there location on the cars

Lower Front End Ball Joints

Posted by Logan Robb on May 11, 2023 at 9:04am 7 Comments

Good Morning all! 

I took the 64 into the shop to have some adjustments completed and in the process decided to have the lower ball joints replaced as was recommended the last time I had it in. I ordered the parts and came into the shop. They quoted me nearly $500 to replace those lower ball joints requiring nearly 4hrs of labor. Now this is a reputable shop and they know me by name here and they will continue to get my business. I am just questioning what on earth is…


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
